Not sure where this is going. I'm going to answer this assuming you're asking about how the wild card works.

There are three divisions in each league. East, West, and Central. Because there are only three divisions, that means that two of the divisions will play against each other in the post season, but the other division will be left with nobody to play. The wild card spot goes to the team who has the next best record. The wild card evens out the playoff bracket.

Each league has five teams make the Playoffs. Each league has its teams broken into three divisions. The winning team of each division makes the Playoffs. The Wild Card teams are the teams with the 2 best records in their league during the Regular season that did not win a division.

After the divisional champs have clinched their spots in the post season( AL east, central, west and NL east, central, west) the 4th and 5th place teams in AL and NL face off in a one game playoff for the wildcard spot.

If you are talking about the MLB season, "Wild Card" means that one 2nd place team can advance to divisional playoffs.

In Major League Baseball, a wild card may be issued if two teams in both the American and the National league qualify for the postseason even though they did not win in their division.
