Here’s my idea for MLB realignment. I’d love to hear from baseball fans; let me know what you think. I think baseball should add a National League team in Boston (the market can certainly support another team) and an American League team in Omaha, Nebraska or a similar Mid-South market. There would be 4 division winners (no wild-card) and some more natural rivalries if Houston and Tampa swap leagues and if Colorado moves to American League West.
This would cut down on travel time and create some more natural rivalries between franchises. It would keep the DH in the American League and still allow interleague play on a limited basis similar to the current setup.
Each team would play 21 games against each team in their division (63 games), 7 games against each team in the other league divisions (84 games), and 15 interleague games.
American League East – Yankees, Red Sox, Baltimore, Toronto
American League Central – White Sox, Minnesota, Detroit, Cleveland
American League Mid-South – Kansas City, Omaha Expansion, Texas, Houston
American League West – Seattle, Colorado, Oakland, LA Angels
National League East – Mets, Boston Expansion Team, Philly, Pittsburgh
National League Central – Milwaukee, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Cubs
National League Mid-South – Atlanta, Washington, Florida, Tampa Bay
National League West – LA Dodgers, San Diego, Arizona, San Francisco
