PHOENIX -- If Bud Selig wants to expand Major League Baseball's playoffs or even radically realign the divisions, he has an ally in Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis.

Youkilis would prefer to see a more NBA-style playoff format with the top eight teams from each league making the playoffs, regardless of division. He also thinks less divisional play would take some of the spotlight off the Red Sox and Yankees and on other teams -- and he's fine with that.

Youkilis supports expanded playoffs

And this is news worthy??  What will the oracle Youuuuk cover next? Global warming, politics, exit strategy in the Afgan?  Please get to work C. Trent Rosecrans you`d be better taking the All-Star break off than putting drival like this "story" up. We all know how much Red sawx Nation loves the fat guy with the ridiculous batting stance. I`d rather read where in the world he cooked that up, my guess is at some pub about 2-3am.

Of course he supports it, what player wouldn't when it means a better chance a a WS title when you're a perrenial border team (yes the Red Sox are a perennial border team when they make the playoffs like 50% of the time).

By the way... this is a mistake for MLB. It will erode the meaning of the regular season. That's what makes college football so great. The regular season means so much!

Youkilis supports expanded playoffs

Of course he supports extended playoffs. That's the only way the Red Sox will ever make it back to the playoffs.
