Expansion and Realignment… Part I

I thought of expansion and realignment in baseball has been buzzing around in my head a lot lately.

So here some cities that I can think off that the MLB could expand to.

  • Indy
  • Nawlins
  • Vegas
  • Charlotte/Raleigh
  • Montreal
  • Vancouver

Those are six cities that I MLB could expand to if did. I list two Candian cities becasue because I think that could really boost Canada’s interest in baseball, eh.

Believe me, if Montreal got a team they would sell out tickets once the news was announced. They would have some thing to prove. They want to show that that they do care about baseball and want to show everyone that you will never again see Olympic Stadium so empty for a baseball game.

 

I also suggest Vancouver since if it can host the Olympics it certainley can host a baseball team. Plus I think Mariners vs. Team Vancouver could be a very good rivalry.

 

If all 6 six team where to be expasion teams the divison could look like this.

AL East- O’s, Rays, Yankees, Reed Sox, Blue Jays, Team North Carolina

AL Central- Indians, Tigers, Twins, White Sox, Royals, Team Indy

AL West- Mariners, Angels, A’s, Rangers, Team Vancouver,

NL East- Braves, Natinals, Marlins, Phillies, Mets, Team Montreal

NL Central- Pirates, Reds, Cubs, Cardinals, Astros, Breweres, Team Nawlins

NL West- Giants, Rockies, Padres, Dodgers, D’Backs, Team Vegas

 

More thoughts on expansion and realignment to come!

Jordan – I don’t think it worked to well the last time Montreal had a baseball team. Having a baseball team playing in a place that is so prone to storm damage as New Orleans would probably work against it as a site. Charlotte/Raleigh I could see as a viable site. But until the economy turns around I don’t think there will be much talk of expanding baseball.

You know what, I think I sat in section 360 when I went to an O’s game last spring.
