Gamingboy Posted May 23, 2004 Share Posted May 23, 2004 If I had it my way, by 2030 baseball would have 34 teams, 8 divisions.Total 34 teamsAL: 17 teamsAL EAST:Baltimore OriolesBoston Red SoxNew York YankeesToronto Blue JaysAL CENTRAL:Chicago White SoxCleveland IndiansDetroit TigersKansas City RoyalsMinnesota TwinsAL WEST: Anaheim AngelsOakland AthleticsSeattle MarinersPortland Roses (Expansion)AL South:Texas RangersTampa Bay Devil RaysSan Juan Palms (Expansion)Monterrey Pesos (Expansion)NL: 17 Teams NL EAST:Washington Senators (Montreal Expos)New York MetsPhiladelphia PhilliesPittsburgh PiratesNL Central:Chicago CubsMilwaukee BrewersSt. Louis CardinalsColorado RockiesNL West:Arizona DiamondbacksLA DodgersSan Diego PadresSan Francisco GiantsLas Vegas Luxors (Expansion)NL South:Houston AstrosAtlanta BravesFlorida MarlinsCincinnati RedsPlayoff format:First round: The two top teams in each division play eachother in a best of 3 series. Bringing it down from 16 to 8. Then it's a best of 5 series between the winners of the "Divisional Championships". Then it's down to 4 teams for the League championships (best of 7). Then the World Series (best of 7). Interleague play would go on a four year cycle: Each year one division would play another division's teams. So one year the AL East could be playing the NL West, then the next it would be NL South. Of course, sometimes when there is a uneven amount of teams (Like if the AL west played the NL west), then the "odd" team would just play against another team that is a "odd team out"(so if the Padres are the odd team out, they'd play a AL odd team out, like, say, the Detroit tigers). They'd then rotate so that another team would be odd team out. NOTE: The expansion teams are cities that have shown interest in getting a baseball team, I just made up the names.
