Thread: League/Division Format

    League/Division Format

    I've been questioning the necessity of having divisions...I think there should be one division in each league. The top four teams in each make the playoffs. Makes for a better balanced schedule as well. What is the point of a division?

    Cuts down on travel time and costs.

    Less 10:05pm start times.
    Fire Farrell - fucking check mark!
    Trade Pedroia
    Sign JD Martinez to play 1B/DH
    Sign Alex Cora for MGR - check plus!

    I'd do away with the NL and AL and cut even more down on travel costs by making divisions even more regional.

    EAST
    TOR
    BOS
    NYY
    NYM
    PHI
    BAL

    NORTH
    PITT
    DET
    CLE
    CIN
    CWS
    Cubs

    SOUTH
    WSH
    ATL
    TBR
    MIA
    HOU
    TEX

    CENTRAL
    MN
    MIL
    STL
    KC
    COL
    AZ

    WEST
    SEA
    SF
    OAK
    LAD
    LAA
    SD

    Play each non division team 3 games (3 x 24= 72).
    Play each divisional team 18 games (5 x 18=90).

    5 Division winners make playoffs with 3 wild card teams. (Could have the best wild card team get an automatic slot and have the next 4 teams play a one game play-in for the last 2 slots to keep the number of playoff teams at 10 overall.)

    Or

    6 divisions of 5 teams:

    NorthEast
    BOS
    NYY
    NYM
    PHI
    BAL

    SouthEast
    WSH
    NC (from OAK)
    ATL
    TBR
    MIA

    MidWest
    CWS
    Cubs
    MN
    MIL
    STL

    Central
    KC
    TEX
    HOU
    COL
    AZ

    West
    SEA
    SF
    LAD
    LAA
    SD

    Play 3 or 4 games vs other divisions (4 x 15 + 3 x 10 teams=90)
    Play (18 x 4 teams=72)

    MidEast
    TOR
    PITT
    DET
    CLE
    CIN

    Divisions might make more sense in MLB than the NFL. That should be divisionless, but keep the schedule making as though divisions still existed. That way you know the teams with the best records are going to the playoffs, which is essential in a short season. None of this 7-9 wins a division and home playoff game crap.
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    Though I try to find the answer to all the questions they ask
    Though I know it's impossible to go living through the past
