Major Changes: A Very Unorthodox Proposal for Major League Baseball

A common criticism of Major League Baseball, besides the lack of a salary cap or parity, is the unfair scheduling and division setup. The division setup in both leagues is very unusual. The American League West has four teams, the National League Central has six teams and every other division has five. This adds up to 14 teams in the AL and 16 in the NL, which has led to uneven scheduling.

So I am suggesting a dramatic change in both leagues.The new division format should be just like the National Football League, which also has an excellent rotating scheduling system.

I also suggest cutting regular season games and adding an extra round in the postseason, which would allow teams that would have been previously left out of the wild card to have a chance at the World Series
