This is the greatest thread in the history of Sports in General. Finally, the shackles of realignment have been loosed. I will subscribe to this thread & enjoy it like hell. This is almost as good as the Nutcracker thread.

12 hours in, this is very underwhelming to me. I have another opinion on the "some of you are monkeys", line, but...

To be perfectly honest, the NFL is near perfect as-is. MLB could stand to shuffle a few teams around, but they aren't too bad.

The NFL, NBA and NHL are fine the way they are. But the MLB hasn't yet realized that the three other major leagues have actually evened out the teams in each division by now. I mean, do they realize how ridiculous it is to have only four teams in the AL West when there are six teams in the NL Central?

Anyway, FanHouse came up with an interesting idea in this post: have the MLB work like European soccer, with an A league and a B league - contenders go in the A league, and underachievers go in the B league.

MLB could stand to be reworked, but what they have now is workable. Of course the first thing they need to do is balance out the number of AL and NL teams. Once they do that they can start thinking about divisional realignment.

It's an interesting idea, but it would never work. That setup is familiar with, and thus accepted by, European sports fans. As a concept it's completley foreign to North American sports fans, and thus would never fly.

The problem with "evening" out all the divisions IIRC is that there are not enough interleague games on the schedule to make having an odd number of teams in each league work without greatly increasing the number of off days or having off series.

You manage to balance agitation with just enough salient points to keep things interesting. Kind of a low-rent DG_Now.

Everyone wants to think that their team has at least an outside shot of winning a championship when the season starts. There's always a few surprise teams, and even fans in Pittsburgh have to have some hope (at least on opening day) that this can be their year. Having an A and B league effectively eliminates half of the league before the season even starts, making it unlikely that people are going to turn out, even in the beginning. Why would I want to go to games for what is effectively a minor league team?

Good luck getting fans in Major League cities to pay Major League ticket prices for a team that for all intents and purposes is considered Minor League.
