A New Baseball Paradigm

David Pinto writes about some interesting ideas for an unlikely expansion and reorg of the Major League Baseball.

In this new plan, teams would be assigned to divisions based on their results in the previous season. In his sample scenario this might be our division in a given year:

Ruth League - Williams Division

Atlanta Braves
NY Yankees
SF Giants
Oakland A's
Boston Red Sox

Some good teams there, including my "other" team, the SF Giants.

Of course, any team that ends up in the same division as the Yankee's is in trouble 'cause there are no wildcards. Win your division, or get a longer vacation.
