Nate Silver and Curt Schilling would bring some balance, in more ways than one.
Of Boz's suggestions, I think the "conceded base" (IBB) makes a lot of sense, as well as once a month day night double headers (before travel days or on Saturdays). I'm not too keen on requiring pitchers to pitch to two batters. They already can lose a platoon advantage if the opponent pinch hits . . . And kill GBA, thank G-d I'm a Country boy, or any other second song during the 7th inning stretch.
The manager selection seems a little tilted towards "old school" managers. If you pick the committee, you can control the result.
