True, I was thinking 6 five team-divisions (like how next year will be), with more geographically accurate divisions, and more of a blurring (or abolishing) of the AL/NL.

Maybe

California Division
LAD
LAA
SD
SF
OAK

Expanse Division
SEA
COL
ARI
MIN
KC

South Division
TEX
HOU
ATL
TB
MIA

Midwest Division
MIL
CHC
CHW
STL
CIN

North Division
DET
CLE
PIT
TOR
BOS

East Division
NYY
NYM
PHI
BAL
WSH


Re: Delta, Cincinnati and Atlanta are Delta hubs. You said something about balancing travel requirements...

The divisions sound reasonable enough, however, I might want to do more research.

And what was the deal with balancing travel requirements?

You said that could have been why CIN and ATL were in the West and CHC and STL were in the east.

I never said that could have been. I was asking what the travel balance requirements were.
