    I have the solution. Put all three teams in the same division as the Yankees! 😉

    Not a bad idea Brian. Currently when the Rays host the Yankees and Red Sox the visiting team has the majority of fans. Kind of like when the Cardinals visit KC.

    Would they ever consider really shaking things up and doing an east and west like the NBA to reduce travel?

    Fair question, but remember that the NBA does not play multi-game series in the same city like MLB does.

    They usually look at Metro size and TV market size (the bulk of revenues are now from TV contracts).

    In which case, the two choices would be 1) Montreal & 2) Charlotte
    Television Market Sizes

    Portland would be a rather distant third, because there is more population within 150 miles of Charlotte than there is within 150 miles of Portland. That said, professional franchises in Portland do tend to draw well.

    How about a totally different idea and add a 3rd team in NYC. The other location could maybe be Montreal or Las Vegas. NYC used to have 3 teams. Maybe that would make more sense.

    I am not well versed on the specifics, but I recall that Seattle lost its NBA team while Portland has kept theirs. The two had coexisted for a long time.

    This is all something for the billionaires to decide. Wake me up if anything important changes.

    Forget Montreal, Las Vegas, Portland and all of those ideas. An American League team in St. Louis called…yes, the Browns and a National League team in Brooklyn. There, it’s settled.

    Cool nostalgia idea, Nate! And really,I think a team in Brooklyn would do well, although the Mets and Yankees would not like it.

    The A’s are working diligently on getting a new stadium for themselves so I would take then out as a team that would relocate.
