A couple of FG articles suggest having at least some of the league revenues be distributed to reward winning.  It's similar to what the Premier League does.  If there were graduated premiums for finishing top two thirds of your league, you might see teams be more willing to not tank. 

Just imagine how much extra the Nats would have had with near-top records . . .

That may be true on the margins, but in the Premeir League, the real motivation not to tank is relegation. I know it would be impossible in MLB because of how the minors are set up, but man would I love that.
