When the playoff format was introduced, it was ---> win your division ---> win your league ---> win the World Series.

Division ---> Conference ---> Cup is the was to go, in my opinion. That system provided the best playoff stories and rivalries.
New York and Baltimore was not the first round, but even in the Division Series round it was previously impossible to face a division opponent until just last year.
