    Baseball doesn't need expansion...it needs to remove at least 2 teams.

    San Juan and Omaha?!




    Nah.... if any expansion happens at all it will be:

    NL East - Scranton, NY
    AL West - Walla Walla, Washington

    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    Absolutly right. Remove the two florida teams. Both have no history and no fans. And the A's need to get the hell out of Oakland.

    Re: Baseball Expansion-2 more teams which cities?

    I think San Juan could be a viable option. I would love to see a team in Louisville, but Cincinnati and St. Louis would never let that happen. Omaha is an interesting idea; it is a small market, but could market the entire state of Nebraska. If the Yankees and Mets would allow a third team near New York, then New Jersey or Providence could certainly support a team. So after those rambling thoughts, I think if MLB were to expand it should do so in San Juan and the Northeast. I don't really care which league get which.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    Baseball can't grow. YOu may be able to move a team from oakland, tampa, or seattle to san juan but you can't have another expansion. There were 10 teams this year averaged 60% capacity or under. and 16 teams were under 70% capacity. Baseball would be more fun with 28 teams. If you add more teams that just means the talent in the MLB will be further diluted.

    They wouldn't contract Miami because of the new ballpark. I would say Tampa Bay because of the fans not showing up to games. What they do to win games to me is absolutely amazing. Oakland would be a possibilty as well as Seattle and KC. In the NL I think that Houston(now AL I guess) Pittsburgh and San Diego would get some consideration. These are just wild guesses tho. To me the AL would have more options, but if you took more from 1 league over the other then you would have to do a realignment and baseball just doesn't seem to want to do that.

    Memphis is in cardinal country and is too small anyway. With seattle we've seen what happens to baseball in the pacific Northwest. The best Options in the continental 48 are Sacremento, or another team in the New York area. Perhaps Jersey, Brooklyn or a north suburb like Yonkers. It's truly unfirtunate that the castro ass holes are running Cuba or else there would probably already be a franchise in Havana. Mexico city is also very intriguing, especially if baseball really continues to grow in popularity there.

    Las Vegas and Newark

    But I'd actually be in favor of removing about 4 teams.

    I say place them both in St. Louis. Those super fans can easily support 3 or 4, hell maybe even 5 teams. Just ask them. They can have their own division. Maybe form their own league.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Las vegas would be worse for baseball than Miami has been. Especially after the market crashed you saw what kind of a town it was. There is no industry, if people aren't spending money then Las Vegas is always one of the hardest hit cities.

    I agree with Newark. THere needs to be one more team in the New york area, for gods sake there's 20 mil people. Each borough could have its own team
