MLB baseball expansion - Yea or nay

What do you think? Rumored that Manfred is considering adding a few teams to the MLB.

I usually hate expansion because it means you make every roster worse. And I see it as a money grab. But I kind of like the idea of using it to realign divisions.

Gotta give baseball credit for one thing... relocation is rare, which is great.

no. When there are teams regularly losing over 95 games. We do not need more teams.

In fact, I do not see the need for anymore major pro teams.

To do this they would need to realign. They would have to use 4 team divisions and add a North South and remove the Central Division. That would require a lot.

Could they fix that by requiring a spending floor similar to the NFL? As well as a hard cap instead of the luxury tax BS?

They should contract TB and Oakland


Zero fan support. Zero reason to exist


Then move a team to Montreal if they pass a new stadium. Perhaps Cleveland. Or White Sux

The main issue is diluting rosters. There are only so many good players to go around. One of the major reasons for the boom in home runs during the steroid era was the dilution of pitching staffs. Teams that had 5 solid starters ended up with a few really, really bad starters at the end of the rotation. It's great for boosting home run counts. But it leads to a lot of really, really bad baseball.

Yes baseball needs to expand. It also has the most of parity of all the pro sports. Doesn't need a salary cap either.

It's looking like they will got back to 2 divisions in each league for travel reasons.

Schedule would be like this:
12 games with each team in your division. 6 home, 6 away
6 games with each team in other other division in league, 3 home, 3 away
3 games with each team in other division in other league. 12 home, 12 away
6 games with interleague rival, 3 home, 3 away

Playoffs
Division Winners automatically to Division Series
Two Wild card games in each league, winners to division series.

Charlotte would be a great city but the current Braves fan base might be hard to overcome. Portland doesn't have much competition. Las Vegas is booming. Not sure on Nashville. Forget Canada especially Montreal. It wasn't a great baseball city. Mexico would be a terrible idea.

The A's have a great history. Kill the two Florida teams.

Disclaimer: I am a Pirates fan. So I am not defending the A's out of fandom.
