Lets break some of these down shall we?
Interleague play -- a joke
A joke or an opportunity to see players you otherwise can't see? The attendance for interleague play is good; MLB is making more money because of it. Several rivalries have also started due to this.
the unbalanced schedule
Gives division games greater importance. Has allowed rivalries to flourish as well.
second place teams making the playoffs
Would you rather have there only be two playoff teams per league? Would you propose a four division league -- in which case, it's actually easier for a crappy team to make the playoffs. Four wild card teams have won the World Series since it's creation 11 years ago.
expansion ... during the strike!
While the Marlins attendance is low, they have won two World Series in the 11 they've been around for. The Diamondbacks just won one as well. The Rockies draw fairly decently. The Devil Rays we could do without.
the all star game deciding home field for the World Series
By doing this it will make the game more competitive -- better baseball -- and it makes ties virtually impossible to occur; they'll play it out now.
