Let the fans decide I always say.

Well, except in MLB All-Star voting. I think we all can find a few reasons why.

I've decided to take the best players from each division and put them on a team. The teams from each division will face off each other. You as fans will choose which division goes on.

The rules are simple. I put down the starting teams and fans are able to substitute any players they wish. In order for a specific player to be substituted, fans must reply to the comment seconding the substitution. At the same time, other fans may decline the substitution by replying to the comment. A 60 percent majority vote is required to make a substitution.

Fans can also change the defensive alignment of their division. The same rules apply here as substituting a player.

I will make all the necessary adjustments within two days and give each division a week to square off. I will notify everyone through the comments section when no more substitutions are allowed.

The geographical divisions face off against one another (north vs. south, east vs west) and battle it out to see which division takes the championship.

The division with the most votes wins and moves on.

Take a look at your teams and make your moves. Vote for the better division roster and ENJOY!
