Agreement To Add Two Wild Card Slots In 2012 Not Absolutely Final

Minutes ago, we shared a tweet from Ken Rosenthal, saying that MLB adding two new wild card slots in 2012 was a "go". Now we're going to pull back just a tiny little bit:

Let's face it: it's probably just a matter of time. Ken Rosenthal says it's basically guaranteed. Jon Heyman doesn't go that far, but suggests he'd be surprised if an agreement isn't reached. Barring some complete and utter surprise, there are going to be ten playoff baseball teams in 2012. We're just waiting on MLB to realize it.

In case you don't remember, the two wild cards in each league would play a one-game playoff, with the winner advancing to the division series and the loser returning home and wondering what just happened.
