I think that is the only solution.




Just looking at the last four years under your scenario ..

Minnesota would not have made the playoffs in 2003 despite winning the Central

Atlanta would have not made the playoffs in 2001 despite win the East.

Other than that, the top 4 from each league always seem to go.
There is the rare exceptions of course, but not enough to overhaul the entire system. :-o


That's amazing....you can project what their records would have been with a balanced schedule?

You know everything goes in cycles. How long ago was it that the Giants and D-backs were in the WS and the AL Central was considered a joke? Division winners get in. It is that simple. If you just want the top 4 winning% teams to get in then we need to go back to no divisions just AL and NL.

Exactly. Balanced schedules and the top 4 get in.

Is there any argument against this?

Other than it would make for an incredibly boring finish to the season and cause a big drop in attendance. No. ;-)

Another interesting NL West fact, the D'Backs, the 2nd place team in the division have been outscored by a total of (run differential) 147 runs following last nights game, which is abysmal. I agree with mookie that the NL West could possibly be the worst division ever, but I don't think that we should move to a balanced schedule, Top 4 in.
