Well, I would personally like the playoffs shortened and the regular season be more meaningful. In other words, fewer playoff teams. Dump the WC and go back to the 2 division format. I know it won't happen, but that's what I'd prefer.
I absolutely detest seeing a world series champion who couldn't even manage to win their own division. That's not a champion in my book, that's just the last man standing.
