I think you're preaching to the choir. No one in this thread said that the alternating method was superior to the AS game method. Neither work.
Both work, home field advantage doesn't really matter. They could give home field to the team with the highest combined weight and it wouldn't really matter.
I understand what you're trying to do, Tavish. Get someone to bite that bait so you can reply that there is no provable correlation between home field advantage and World Series success. But that point doesn't matter.
Both systems are an unfair means of determining home field advantage. Despite the history of the World Series I know most teams would select home field advantage given the choice.
