  • Let's Make a Major League! (Phase IV, Midwest Division: Team Names)

    After yet another overwhelming voter turnout in Phase III, Alignment #2 was chosen in a veritable landslide as the divisional setup for our brand new MLB. Here's how the team locations will be arranged:

    EASTERN CONFERENCE
    Atlantic Division: Baltimore, Boston, Miami, New York (1), New York (2), Philadelphia, Washington
    Midwest Division: Atlanta, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Toronto

    WESTERN CONFERENCE
    Central Division: Chicago (1), Chicago (2), Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Minneapolis, St. Louis
    Pacific Division: Denver, Los Angeles (1), Los Angeles (2), Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle

    We had several team names suggested for each location in the nomination phase. Now, in Phase IV of the project, we can vote on which name we like best for each location. I've broken up Phase IV into 4 polls, one for each division, so as not to have a single poll with over 200 options. For each location, choose only one (1) team name, with the exceptions of Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, for which you must choose two (2) team names. If you don't like any of the names listed for a particular location, you can choose "(other)"; for Chicago, LA, and NY, there are two "(other)" options for if one or both of the team names you like are not listed. In each poll, you should have chosen a total of seven (7) options, no more, no less.

    Note: None of the team nicknames (i.e., the latter part of the team name) in our brand new MLB can be the same as any of the existing MLB team nicknames -- even if the name is being used by a team in a different location. So there can't be a San Francisco Giants, nor can there be a New York Giants, nor can there be a Minnesota Giants.

    Holding a pitcher accountable for how many runs his team scores is like holding the designated hitter accountable for how many runs his team allows.

    An individual statistic is meaningful only if it is based strictly on what the player does and not on what the other players on his team do.

    Contrary to what most baseball fans claim, a pitched ball which is hit into play is not a strike.

      Atlanta Bulldogs (yes, even though i also voted Beagles for Minnesota; hey, our majors have 3 bird names so why not?)
      Cincinnati Buckeyes (because if Cleveland doesn't get the team name I want Cincinnati to)
      Cleveland Buckeyes (I think it was only Cleveland that had this Negro league team name, but I could be wrong)
      Detroit Turbos
      Milwaukee Robins (though i like Cheese, too)
      Pittsburgh Panthers
      Toronto Ospreys

        It's a four-way tie for Toronto, and it's still close for a few other cities as well. We need more votes!
