NEW YORK -- In a bizarre series of events today, Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred unexpectedly resigned from office, citing his plans to pursue his lifelong fantasy of becoming the first man to be chosen for the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover.

 

This bombshell would be followed by the announcement of an interim Commissioner, MactheKnife, who upon introduction announced that the owners had agreed to explode the number of Major League teams beginning with the 2020 season, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the 1871 founding of the National Association.  The plan put forth takes the existing 115 year rivalry between the American and National Leagues and adds two new players to the mix, in the form of the Federal and International Leagues.

 

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Northern - Chicago White Sox, Detroit, Minnesota, Toronto

Southern - Baltimore, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, 

Eastern - Boston, New York Yankees, Indianapolis

Western - California, Seattle, Oakland, Albuqerque

 

NATIONAL LEAGUE

Northern - Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus

Southern - Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis, Norfolk, New Orleans

Eastern - New York Mets, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Buffalo

Western - Los Angeles, Colorado, San Diego, San Francisco

 

FEDERAL LEAGUE

Northern - X

Southern - Charlotte, Durham, Memphis, Nashville

Eastern - X

Western - Arizona, Reno, Fresno, Sacramento

 

INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE

Northern - Montreal Expos, Washington Nationals

Southern - Florida Marlins

Eastern - Louisville, Toledo

Western - Oklahoma City, El Paso, Portland, Las Vegas

 

Any suggestions for filling out the Federal League?

I've thought of this idea for many years. To imagine how leagues would be for all sports, especially football and basketball. 

Luckily, if you have a college football video game you can reorganize the conferences so you can play with this set up to see for yourself how it would go.
