        I've got it!

        Ok, let's see. There are 30 teams in Major League Baseball. I propose that we add two more expansion teams to give us 32. Then we have a 162 game regular season in order to seed the teams into a tournament. Then all 32 teams make the "playoffs", and we have a single elimination tourney, not unlike March Madness. We can call it "October Insanity".

        This would make things a lot more interesting, and anyone would have a chance to win it all, even if they went 62-100. The regular season would be one big exhibition season, but I think that fans would show up anyway.

          Looks interesting MapleSyrupMan This is what I came up with, but oh boy, the NL South

          Code:
          AL West		NL West
          Las Vegas	Arizona
          Los Angeles	Los Angeles
          Oakland		San Diego
          Seattle		San Francisco
          
          AL North	NL North
          Chicago		Chicago
          Cleveland	Cincinnati
          Detroit		Milwaukee
          Minnesota	Pittsburgh
          
          AL South	NL South
          Kansas City	Atlanta
          San Antonio	Colorado
          Tampa Bay	Houston
          Texas		St. Louis

            Both proposals have Colorado sticking out like a sore thumb. It is really a western team geographically

              This is my proposal. By the way, I'm against the idea to expand the playoff format.

              Code:
              AL West		NL West
              Portland * 	Colorado
              Los Angeles	Los Angeles
              Oakland		San Diego
              Seattle		San Francisco
              
              AL North	NL North
              Chicago		Chicago
              Cleveland 	Pittsburgh
              Detroit		Milwaukee
              Minnesota	St.Louis
              
              AL South	NL South
              Kansas City	Atlanta
              San Antonio*	Arizona
              Tampa Bay	Houston
              Texas		Cincinnati
              
              AL East		NL East
              Baltimore	New York
              Boston		Norfolk*
              New York	Philadelphia
              Toronto		Washington
              * = One of these cities could have the Marlins, then the alignment would change if it were P-Town or SA.

                I had the same discussion about four-division leagues about a year ago. Another advantage is that every team could have a set schedule; 18 games against each team in the division, 8 games against each team in the rest of the league and 3 games against each team in one division of the other league. You could never get away with putting the Cubs and the Cardinals in different divisions though. Here's how I would do it:

                Code:
                AL West		NL West
                Las Vegas	Colorado
                Los Angeles	Los Angeles
                San Jose	San Diego
                Seattle		San Francisco
                
                AL North	NL North
                Chicago		Chicago
                Cleveland 	Cincinnati
                Detroit		Milwaukee
                Minnesota	St. Louis
                
                AL South	NL South
                Kansas City	Atlanta
                Norfolk		Arizona
                Tampa Bay	Houston
                Texas		San Antonio
                
                AL East		NL East
                Baltimore	New York
                Boston		Philadelphia
                New York	Pittsburgh
                Toronto		Washington

                    You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the $%#%! plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all. ~Earl Weaver

                        You went ahead of me, but I put had Louisville over San Antonio as a future AL Expansion, and it will be called the Louisville Colonels.

                            Hello to everybody, if I have to put a 4 division alignment with the new expansion teams I have in mind, it would be the following:

                            AL North:

                            Chicago White Sox
                            Cleveland Indians
                            Detroit Tigers
                            Minnesota Twins

                            AL South:

                            Louisville Colonels
                            Kansas City Royals
                            Tampa Bay Devil Rays
                            Texas Rangers

                            AL East:

                            Baltimore Orioles
                            Boston Red Sox
                            New York Yankees
                            Toronto Blue Jays

                            AL West:

                            Las Vegas Ramblers
                            Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (name too long me hate it)
                            Oakland Athletics
                            Seattle Mariners

                            NL North:

                            Cincinnati Reds
                            Chicago Cubs
                            Milwaukee Brewers
                            St. Louis Cardinals

                            NL South:

                            Atlanta Braves
                            Colorado Rockies
                            Florida Marlins
                            Houston Rockets

                            NL East:

                            New York Mets
                            Philadelphia Phillies
                            Pittsburgh Pirates
                            Washington Nationals

                            Arizona Diamondbacks
                            Los Angeles Dodgers
                            San Diego Padres
                            San Francisco Giants

                            The schedule will consist of 162 games, 14 games against the divisional opponent, 10 games against non-divisional opponents, no interleague play, back to tradition and basics, only the 4 division champions will qualify for playoffs in #1 vs. #4 and #2 vs. #3 format, the LDS will be a best of 7 format, also the LCD and World Series too, and home field advantage will be pivotal through the playoffs and World Series.

                                i think they should add one more wild card(in the american and national league)...then the two wild card teams should have a quick 3 games series, and then there would be four teams like the usual playoffs
