The All Star Game needs to be an exhibition game if fans are going to be in charge of voting in starters and each team is required to have a representative. If they want it to count, then the two leagues should field the best teams possible. No Jeters, no Simons, no Suzukis, Carpenters, or Blackmons.

I agree that fans should have no say in the voting. I do like that every team has a rep, from a political standpoint. It brings the entire league together for one night, and as a Marlins fan, I know what it feels like to watch my team be excluded from the game and it's not any fun.

i would want

1) All star game doesnt decide home field in the world series. i honestly have no idea how anybody thinks thats a good and fair idea.
2) Put the DH in both leagues
3) Expand the rosters by 2 players

9 games? Nah.

Yeah. Original World Series was 9 games, and 1919, 1920, and 1921 were best of 9. I think it'd be better. It's all good, though.

162 game world series

Perfect.

It'll make things interesting. World Series gets played from October to March. You play in the World Series, you get penalized for it.

I forgot that, add another roster spot.

And make the 7 day DL available for every injury, not just concussions.

Agree with the DL. Small injury that requires a few days off? 7 day DL.No more day to day stuff.

Well if your going to add an extra player and decrease the DL time, maybe some sort of inactice squad for day to day injuries. Like a 3rd QB in the NFL, can only play in case of in game injury that requires removal from the game.

28 man roster, 3 inactive players per game. In exchange for the three more roster spots implement a harder cap on the game.

All star game is voted on by the players and coaches with fan input via the fan vote. If the all star managers think something is out of wack they can fix it.

Expand two more teams, Montreal and Vancouver possibly. Start international expansion plans.

Squalls 4 team divisions like football.
6 playoff spots.
4 division winners.
2 wild cards
Top two division winners earn bye.
Bottom two playoff teams based on RECORD play a 2 of three at the better teams home stadium (or head to head record winner).

Starts immediately following the season with no day off, gives better teams a break to line up rotation, rest up.

Playoff roster is at 28 with three inactives, if someone's hurt during a series you can't replace them.

Oh, and the MVP trophy is a birthday cake.

Dunno if I want 12 teams to make the post season, but I do like that idea over getting rid of the WC completely.

Agree with Wild Card that inter league should stay, one of the best moves Bud made, creates diversity in the schedule, allows for a lot of the inter-league rivalries, and honestly it's fun to know that you might be able to face an Angels, Red Sox or Yankees team some time in the next few years (or centuries, if you're a Cubbie).

Completely hate the idea of adding a DH, would rather do away with it than add it, but I'm fine with the split as it is.

Disagree with making the All Star game pointless, but agree with making changes to it. I don't think players should be able to opt out. If you are an all-star, you play. No more fan votes, or at the very least, only the last 4 or something. If the games are going to be worth something, the best players from both leagues should be in it.

Just my thoughts on some things in here.
