Two things that I think should be changed about your idea:
-Both leagues need to be equal... NOT 14 in AL & 16 in NL
-Interleague play is a must... Gives each league a taste of the other league and provides a way for managers to challenge themselves with lineups

Other than that it's all good

The only thing I think doesn't work is Atlanta in the west. I know they were there until '93, but it doesn't make since that teams like St. Louis and Milwaukee are in the east when Georgia is a pretty eastern state.

NBA realignment because I'm board, and I think this will make the regular season more important.

 

NBC

 

West:

Lakers

Golden St

Utah

Denver

Phoenix

 

Central:

Milwaukee 

San Antonio

New Orleans 

Memphis 

Chicago 

 

East:

Washington 

Atlanta

Brooklyn 

Miami 

Philadelphia 

 

ABC

 

West:

Sacramento

Clippers

Portland

Houston

Dallas

 

Central:

Detroit

OKC

Cleveland

Indiana

Minnesota

 

East:

Charlotte

Toronto

New York

Orlando

Boston

 

Three division winners two wild cards per. wild card teams play 3-game series, all series after that are 7 games. the conference are separate and don't play each other till the finals, i think its make a rivalry like Lakers-Celtics feel even specialer. 

 

this is the alignment that i think works best.

I was reading an article on how the Reno Aces had to travel to Nashville then to Salt Lake City. The distances involved were rather much for a junior circuit, IMO, so I'm bringing back the American Association. If a team isn't in the new AA, they're in the same league as they are now.

 

American Association III

Western Division

Iowa Cubs

Omaha Storm Chasers

New Orleans Zephyrs

Round Rock Express

Oklahoma Redhawks

 

Eastern Division

Nashville Sounds

Louisville Bats

Memphis Redbirds

Buffalo Bisons

Indianapolis Indians

 

The Triple-A All Star Game goes back to AL farm clubs vs. NL farm clubs. As for the playoffs, I like the AAA Championship Game, so we'll have a Championship Weekend. The AAA champion with the best record (We'll say the IL's Lehigh Valley in this scenario) gets a bye, and the other two teams (the AA's Louisville and PCL's Las Vegas) have a play-in game on Friday. Winner of the play-in game gets the Ironpigs on Sunday.

I actually kind of like this. There's nothing here that I'd be against seeing. The AAC would probably be better off splitting into an east and west conference on their own, though.


It's _____________ and Toledo still sucks.
