For the first time since 1995, the Major League Baseball postseason is getting a makeover. Instead of the eight teams—three division winners and a Wild Card per league—there will now be two Wild Cards per league. The two Wild Cards will compete in a playoff.

For some teams, this is welcome news, especially those who have missed the postseason by one game. It's a chance to prove that they belong in a do-or-die series, a dogfight between two Wild Cards. 

In each division, there is one team that tries to prove that it is worthy of postseason contention. This slideshow will examine each division and pick a team that will most likely be jumping for joy with the news.
