So the travel would be bad. It could be done.
Having a team in Tokyo would be great for baseball. Lets face it, baseball is losing fans to other sports here in America. Yet baseball is very popular in Japan. Japan despite its economic problems the last 15 years is still one of the biggest economies in the world. It could easily support a team and draw WAY more fans than most teams in small markets here in the US.
Also, Mexico city should have a team. Despite Mexico overall being a 2nd world country Mexico city is in fact HUGE. There would be enough fans.
