An Unusual Realignment Plan

So, its been quite awhile since I've posted anything to this blog. I'm sorry about that, but there's not much to really do when you start getting caught up in the MLB regular season and you keep forgetting.
Anyway, I've come up with a rather unusual realignment plan for MLB divisions. I'm not serious about this at all, but I figured I'd post this anyway.
American League East:
American League West:
Chi White Sox
National League East:
National League West:
Federal League East:
Federal League West:
I guess the idea here would be to have all 6 division winners advance to the postseason with the two teams with the next best records, regardless of which league they come from, also advancing as the wild cards.
In return, interleague play would be shortened and the All-Star Game would be meaningless again.
The Federal League would have a rule where there is only an 8 man lineup, meaning no pitcher batting and no DH batting. The idea is to give players more at-bats during a game, something the owners might go for.
Yeah, but again, this isn't a serious proposal. I just happened to be playing around one night with this idea.
