I would love to see them go back to 2 divisions, two winners, the LCS and the WS.
It is extremely likely that the 1993 Giants will stand forever as the last team to win over 100 games and not play in the postseason.
I say go to a 154 game regular season and 16 team playoff with 7 games per round. Thus tons of extra revenue, massive incentive to get to the playoffs, playoff seeding becomes a factor late in the season, and if the #1 team cannot beat the #16 team then they probably wouldn't have gone all the way anyways.
Teams which can't be bothered to win their divisions don't deserve fairness.
I'll sign your petition as soon as MLB quits ####### around with interleague play and balances its schedule.
If our cleanup hitter had not gotten the Plague, we'd have been a lot better.
Have all of the players on teams that can't win their division field an All-Star team, and call 'em the Losers. Give them the WC, and let the playoffs proceed 5-7-7.

One thing is for certain: NOBODY really likes the current set up. I bet it doesn't last long.
Based on what? I think NOBODY AT BTF likes the current set up but my sense is that most casual fans (i.e. the ones sports leagues care about) like it.
I think NOBODY AT BTF likes the current set up but my sense is that most casual fans (i.e. the ones sports leagues care about) like it. I think if anything we'll see a push to make the WC a 3 game series rather than a 1 off but in any given year all but the absolute worst teams go into a season knowing they have a chance to reach the playoffs. That makes fans happy and happy fans make for a happy league.
I like it, I think there are quite a few others. My only objection is that there are way too many off-days.
