With both sides expressing support for adding two playoff teams in 2012, negotiators for baseball players and owners are considering having the new wild-card round be best-of-3 or winner-take-all.

Because longer series would push playoffs deeper into cold weather, the sides are not considering have the new first round be best-of-5 of best-of-7.

“I would say we’re moving to expanding the playoffs, but there’s a myriad of details to work out,” Commissioner Bud Selig said Thursday at his annual meeting with the Associated Press Sports Editors. “Ten is a fair number.”

In the new format, the two wild cards in each league would meet, and the winners would advance to the following round against division winners.
