Floating Re-Alignment: Revolutionary Idea or Simply Revolting?

 

 

   The latest topic being floated from the Commissioners select panel, to which the Angels esteemed Manager, Mike Scioscia, is a member, is the idea of allowing teams to change divisions or even leagues depending on such things as payroll and “whether or not they intend to rebuild or compete.” The idea would allow teams that are low income or rebuilding to decided if they would rather play against lesser teams, or to play against the big boys and get badly beaten in exchange for the ability to fill their stadiums with fans wanting to see the more popular franchises. The one restriction would be to limit the movement to two time zones, for instance the Angels could not join the eastern divisions and the Red Sox would be similarly bared from the West.

 

Here is one example by Tom Verducci of what this temporary realignment might bring about.

 N.L. East: Atlanta, Baltimore, Florida, Tampa Bay, Washington.
N.L. Central: Cubs, White Sox, Houston, Kansas City, St. Louis, Texas.
N.L. West: Anaheim, Arizona, Colorado, Los Angeles, San Diego.

A.L. East: Boston, Philadelphia, Mets, Yankees, Toronto.
A.L. Central: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh.
A.L. West: Oakland, San Francisco, Seattle, Minnesota

So how would you feel about it? Would it be a fun and interesting way to mix things up, or would it just muddy the waters even more than interleague play?
