Each team will play each division rival 24 times and opposite division rivals 6 times each. There will also be 18 interleague games.
Oh, I forgot to say that there would be no more wild-card. So, all teams in the playoffs would be divisional winners.
To Jefferson:
Yeah, I guess you’re right about Tampa Bay. What would happen if they moved the D-Rays to Orlando?
To anyone who thinks this is a bad idea:
Why is it a bad idea? Just look at it. All the divisions are even and the scheduling will be perfectly even. 24 games vs. each division rival and 6 games vs. each opposite divisional team and 18 interleague games. I don’t see anything wrong with this!
To Scott M:
Don’t do anything else to the National League. They will be fine with my idea. But, you are right about the American League. Move Texas to the Midwest and expand with a team in Portland, Oregon. Leave the Astros in the NL Midwest.
To Peter North:
Umm….there will be 16 teams in each league if my idea goes through. Can’t you count?

there isn’t really anything wrong with the system right now, and if it’s not broken why fix it? Also if there’s an expansion team CT needs one. Connecticut has nothing to root for except for the yankees and the red sox. CT needs a sports team!!!
