-choose 'create fictional league'

-setup your league structure (i.e. - if you want the modern MLB structure, just choose that in the drop-down) - click 'next step'

-just below the 'league level' there is a red button that says 'switch to historical team selection'. Click that.

- then just select the year/team to fill in every division and proceed with the rest of your setup.(uncheck all the minors if you're just looking for a mlb league of almost-champions without a minor league system under it).

as you're setting up the league, click 'advanced options'.

-under the 'rules' tab, uncheck the 'enable trades' box if you want to stop the AI from making trades during the season (if you want to keep the historical teams intact for the season). Might also want to uncheck the amateur draft as well, assuming you're just playing a one-season league and not a multi-season career mode.

-under the 'players' tab, change 'generate international free agents', 'international scouting discoveries', 'generate international established free agents', and 'generate free agents from independent leagues' to None. This will keep the odd fictional player from popping up into your historical mix.

Zip you PMed m. Stl Jason has it right. i will provide some screenshots tomorrow morning if you need them.
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

"Stay Strong"

Really interesting idea. On WhatifSports I have the 1962 Dodgers in a league someone started (all WIS leagues are what here are known as "online leagues") based on the idea that the wildcard had always existed. So you can manage any team that would have made the playoffs in the history of baseball had there been such a rule. We are in first place right now in our division, but the best team is an early 20th century Cubs team (can't remember which one).
