Selig is running out of time concerning the Expos. The DC city council says October 1 is the drop dead date for next year. The Baltimore owner is fighting.

 

Numerous reports including the NY Daily News and Washington Post hint the Orioles are considering moving to the NL East.

Meanwhile the White Sox of all people have expressed an interest in moving to the AL East. Their thinking seems to be they would be noticed more in the third largest market playing in the same division as Boston and New York. Toronto would also love to move to the Central and then have 2 rivals close by (Cleveland and Detroit)

 

So lets assume the Orioles move to the NL East, you would need a team to come to the AL. The prime canidate would be Florida. The Marlins would be assured of sellouts anytime Boston and New York play there as the east coast of the state has millions of transplanted northeasterns.

 

So when the dust settles you could see

 

AL EAST

Boston

Yankees

White Sox

Tampa

Miami

 

AL CENTRAL

Toronto

Detroit

Cleveland

Kansas City

Minnesota

 

NL East

Washington

Baltimore

Philadelphia

Mets

Atlanta

At first glance nobody loses on this deal

Orioles pick up rivals 40 and 90 miles away

Tampa and Miami become rivals

Jays get Detroit and Cleveland

White Sox get more media attention in Chicago.
