improve wildcard standings docs
Issue No. 244
Explain the actual differences between Standings and Wildcard standings.
(My belief is its just the rank: value, in which case really I think you should fold them into Standings with a new attribute in standings of wildcard_rank: and skip the other endpoint)
Yes, each endpoint uses the same "standing" object. The wild card standings endpoint removes each division leader and sorts the remaining teams in each league. The standings endpoint returns the division standings for each league.
Why isn't there a wildcard_rank field in the standings endpoint? I think at the time, I was more interested in keeping the "standing" object consistent between NBA standings as well as MLB division and wild card standings. But, you're right, the wild card rank could be rolled into the standings endpoint.
I'm going to keep the standings endpoint the way it is. However, I will look into adding an expanded standings endpoint that includes day-night record, 1-run record, extra innings record, etc. If this happens, the new endpoint will incorporate your idea for wildcard rank.
