I would find 2 teams - most likely outside the US (Mexico City, Montreal, Puerto Rico, Santo Domingo), possibly Las Vegas (if the gambling issue can be resolved) and have 32 teams. From that, form four, 4-team divisions per league. Then you can have 8 legitimate title winners, a 4-vs-1/3-vs-2 LDS, survivors meeting for the LCS, league champions meeting for the World Series.

I would add two expansion teams.  Go to two 8 team divisions in each league with only the two winners meeting in the LCS. 

It is the best of both worlds.  Fans of pennant races get real pennant races and fans of playoffs get a playoff round before the final.  Everyone wins.

Top two team's in each league goes to the World Series short and sweet
