MLB instituted a 2nd wild card spot in both leagues in 2012, hoping to ensure that there would be a better chance for teams to make the postseason. Turns out it was a good idea. The 2014 San Francisco Giants were the 2nd wild card in the National League and they went on to win the World Series. As for this year, the race for the 2nd wild card in the American League has been nothing short of exciting, with six teams within three games of the 2nd wild card spot. So who has the advantages to make it and has the disadvantages to fall short?
