Baseball's Interleague Play

I’m not a fan of Baseball’s interleague play format. The Mets playing the Yankees, the White Sox playing the Cubs, the Indians playing the Reds or the Braves playing the Red Sox admittedly makes for fan appeal. Notwithstanding , interleague play is a marketing ploy which tarnishes the race for championships. A division champion winner should be determined only by games won or lost among teams within the division. (If the Mets and the Braves were in a tight race for the championship , the result should not be infuenced by their interleague play records.)
