    The AL and NL no longer have their own presidents.
    The AL and NL no longer have their own umpires.

    Baseball has consolidated the leagues under the MLB umbrella. So why continue awarding separate MVPs, Cy Youngs, etc.? No other major sport has separate awards for conferences. Why should baseball?

    Interleague play is the only chance to see the two leagues come together during the regular season to gauge at all what happens when a big NL slugger faces a top AL pitcher. Unless you want every team in the NL and AL to meet at least one series in one season, forget it.

    Keep the NL and AL awards separate.

    You ready to abolish separate Oscars for actors & actresses? Equally meaningless, if not more so. It's all about tradition.

    They'll never merge the awards. More awards = more coverage. And more award bonuses for more players.
