I actually find the idea intriguing though I think you can do the same thing with only 12 teams and 4 getting the bye.

I’m a little confused on the “pick ‘em” deal I thought whoever got the bye also got to pick their opponent. I agree the rest period is problematic but there is an advantage in getting to rest your arms after a long season.

In many ways it’s a callback to the old timey days where only the best team in the standings from each league went to the World Series as it gives those teams a HUGE advantage in the playoffs and makes the regular season mean even more.

As for the DH, I’m a purist but I also have accepted that it’s going to happen sooner or later. It hasn’t ruined the AL and won’t ruin the NL either.
