What if the team with the best record in baseball was also in the weakest division? or their interleague schedule was the easiest in the MLB? What if interleague statistical evidence shows one league being significantly better than the other? Should the team with the best record still have home field advantage if their league was not as good as the other?
Having the best record in baseball is worth a lot. It guarantees them having home field advantage through the pennant. It should not give them home field advantage against a team in a different league.
Doesn't everybody remember how pissed everybody was when the all star game two years ago ended in a tie? The all-star game is the greatest exhibition game in all of sports (U.S. sports that is). Giving an award to the team that wins will only make more people watch it... a fact which I think everybody can agree is good for baseball.
