The resolution to this realignment saga is probably drawing near. So I’ll just throw this out here; it’s been a long time since I’ve suggested such an alignment.

What I like about it is the balance between the Conferences. What I’ve come to dislike about it is that it maintains two 3-TZ Divisions.
Also, we’ve discovered that the far-west teams want more games against the east. This alignment does that. While at the same time only adding 4 far-west teams to both Conferences, thus not overburdening the fragile eastern teams with too many far-western teams in their Conference.


* Still believe the 3-Conference alignment is the best fit.
