At the end of each baseball season we could have a World Series in a, 'October Madness' format.

One side of the bracket would be the American League and the other side would be the National League.

All fans could say they made it to the World Series! No more crying about parity.

What?

Only the final two teams would be in the World Series and what would be the point of a regular season if everyone made the playoffs.

I am not saying it will happen but what is there to not understand? Very exciting I would think and mostly, fans from every city would be pumped up and would have a great time.

Millions more people would have a blast. Make that tens of millions. It is not a 'true' world' series anyway. The point of the regular season would be fans enjoying the games and to prepare for, 'October Madness'

This is perhaps the dumbest idea in PSD history. How about the teams who are not competitive make the necessary organizational changes instead of coming up with crap like this. And even the NCAA tournament does not allow all Division I teams in.

Realistically, if you actually thought this was a good idea, if you say millions of people would still be interested come October leading to higher revenue, how could you honestly justify those same millions of fans paying to go see 162 preseason games? They'd lose money in the regular season and it'd be a lot more than they'd gain in any all team bracket series.

I never said anything about, "higher revenue". I said fans would have a blast.
Of course it would never work. The thread is just a silly idea to have some fun. Like you do with your friends or co-workers. Some people here at PSD need to lighten up and not treat every word or thread like it is a proposed solution for world peace.

I am sure people would love the brackets. I am just wondering if each bracket should be one win to move on or best of three. Maybe the final bracket could be best of seven or we can do the whole thing in one win just like the NCAA

I've seen at least one worse idea and it involves the mass murder of innocent civilians via nuclear bomb. Not sure if you're familiar.

Why not? The Cubs lose to everyone anyway so they might as well add the Antartica team to the list!

No offense to the OP but this is a terrible idea. The MLB playoff system is fine with 10 teams not 30. If you did that what would the point be of the regular season?

No... that is why there is a regular season. :eyebrow:

I mean, I get that it's a terrible idea, but it would be fun for a couple years, lol.

I feel better now. I got the feeling some of the replies were starting to annoy you. I was wrong. I misjudged your reply. I apologisze.

And yes it was only meant to be a silly fun thread.

No. It is not a troll thread. You really need to lighten up. The purpose of a troll thread is to intentionally irritate and inflame forum members with the idea of disrupting things. The purpose of this thread was to just have some fun with a silly topic. If you don't like the thread that is fine. There are plenty of other ones for you to enjoy.
