Ok, so with the NLCS in the bag and the ALCS about to be i got to thinking. The league got upset because the All Star game had no purpose, so they give the winner home field in the World Series. I was pondering the idea of inter-league play.
I think its bull**** that the two teams in the WS essentially have nothing to do with who gets home field advantage. So...ready? Why can't they just compare the record of those teams that each team has played during inter-league play. This would put some purpose into an otherwise meaningless practice (at least outside of NYC and Chicago).
