Best Answer

In most cases, the division winner with the best overall season record plays the wildcard team and the other two division winners play each other. But, in the case where the wildcard team and the division winner with the best overall record come from the same division, the division winner with the second overall best record plays the wildcard team and the division winner with the best overall record plays the division winner with the third best overall record. Confusing? Kinda, and kinda not really fair either, but MLB does not want two teams from the same division playing each other in the first round of the playoffs.

Wild card Major League Baseball?

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.

What is the baseball playoff tiebreaker when 3 teams have the exact same record and none are division winners?

If these teams are not going for the division or wild card, there will be no tiebreaker. Otherwise, here is how it would work. First, two of the teams would be decided to play against each other. The winner of that team would play against the third team. The winner of that game would move on. If the winning team is the division titlist and the two losing teams are tied for the wild card, the two wild card teams would play one more tiebreaker game to decide the wild card winner.

Can you use a wild card against a wild card draw four stating different color in uno?

UNO is a game with a lot of different house rules, but the actual UNO rules state that when a Wild Draw 4 card is played, the next player loses their turn and draws four cards from the top of the draw pile. If the subsequent player, not the one who had to draw four cards but the one after them, wishes to change the color they may play a Wild or Wild Draw 4 card on top of the Wild Draw 4 card at the top of the stack. However, the rules also state that if you are going to play a Wild Draw 4 you must not have the proper color card available to play. Therefore, if you have a card that matches the color that was called by the player who discarded that first Wild Draw 4, you must play that card instead. If you ignore that card in your hand and play your Wild Draw 4 anyway, another player may challenge you. During a challenge you must show your cards to the challenger to prove that you are not holding a card of the active color. If you are found to be holding the required colored card, you must draw four cards. If you didn’t have the necessary color, the player who challenged you draws four cards plus two additional cards as a penalty. There are no challenges when you play just a plain Wild card.

In each League, the division winner with the highest win percentage will play the wild card team, and the two remaining teams will play each other. The exception is when the division winner with the highest win percentage is in the same division as the wild card team, in which case the division winner with the second highest win percentage will play the wild card team, and the two remaining teams will play each other. If more that one team has the highest win percentage, a tie-breaker system will be used to determine which team shall play the wild card team.
