The Major League Baseball Realignment Idea

I was reading Jim Bowden’s ESPN Column the other day and he was talking about his radical proposal to realign the teams in Major League Baseball. Here is what he proposed:

Eastern Division                                               Southeast Division
Boston Red Sox                                              Atlanta Braves
New York Mets                                              Baltimore Orioles
New York Yankees                                         Florida Marlins
Philadelphia Phillies                                         Tampa Bay Rays
Toronto Blue Jays                                           Washington Nationals
Central Division                                              Western Division
Cincinnati Reds                                               Arizona Diamondbacks
Cleveland Indians                                           Colorado Rockies
Detroit Tigers                                                  Houston Astros
Minnesota Twins                                             Seattle Mariners
Pittsburgh Pirates                                            Texas Rangers
Midwest Division                                           California Division
Chicago Cubs                                                Los Angeles Angels
Chicago White Sox                                        Los Angeles Dodgers
Kansas City Royals                                        Oakland Athletics
Milwaukee Brewers                                       San Diego Padres
St. Louis Cardinals                                         San Francisco Giants

I actually like Jim’s idea. I think it would be more competitive and better rivalries would be created. Right now it sounds like either the Astros or Marlins will be moving to the National League to even out the AL and NL. I would stay tuned for more on this topic because some major things could be happening before to long as it regards to baseball.
