MLB Expansion. Where do they go? And other questions.


Next year the Houston Astros and their shiny new uniforms will be headed to the American League West. In the short term, this is terrific news for Seattle Mariners because the Astros are terrible. No longer will there be four teams in the AL West or six teams in the NL Central. There will be five teams in each division across Major League Basesball. This leaves each league with 15 teams, requiring an interleague game almost everyday. This, in my opinion, is just stupid, and the reason for this post.

The solution would be to expand by two teams, get rid of the Central Divisions entirely, and have two divisions of eight teams in each league.

So now this brings the question to you. What two cities get the expansion teams? What nickname and team colors do you give them? Which team goes in the AL and NL. Do you keep interleague play? Is Portland capable of supporting Major League Baseball? And if you live in Portland, and Portland ever gets an expansion team, do you remain loyal to the Mariners?...Go!
