An Unusual Realignment Plan

Rate this Entry
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:
Baltimore
Boston
Cleveland
Detroit
NY Yankees

American League West:
Chi White Sox
Kansas City
LA Angels
Minnesota
Oakland

National League East:
Atlanta
Cincinnati
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Washington

National League West:
Chi Cubs
LA Dodgers
San Diego
San Francisco
St. Louis

Federal League East:
Florida
Milwaukee
NY Mets
Tampa Bay
Toronto

Federal League West:
Arizona
Colorado
Houston
Seattle
Texas

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.
