As my first real post back, I will discuss the recent news of us signing Vlad Guerrero to a 1-year, 8 million dollar deal. Am I happy that he signed? Yes. But it is the best move for the future team? No.
Well, I’m going to try to give this blog another go. A lot has happened in Birdland between September 2009 and February 2011, and I won’t be recapping all of it, but I’m back blogging. I will have a post today or tomorrow on the Vlad Guerrero situation, and possibly an off-season recap.
I thought of expansion and realignment in baseball has been buzzing around in my head a lot lately.
So here some cities that I can think off that the MLB could expand to.
Those are six cities that I MLB could expand to if did. I list two Candian cities becasue because I think that could really boost Canada’s interest in baseball, eh.
Believe me, if Montreal got a team they would sell out tickets once the news was announced. They would have some thing to prove. They want to show that that they do care about baseball and want to show everyone that you will never again see Olympic Stadium so empty for a baseball game.
I also suggest Vancouver since if it can host the Olympics it certainley can host a baseball team. Plus I think Mariners vs. Team Vancouver could be a very good rivalry.
If all 6 six team where to be expasion teams the divison could look like this.
AL East- O’s, Rays, Yankees, Reed Sox, Blue Jays, Team North Carolina
AL Central- Indians, Tigers, Twins, White Sox, Royals, Team Indy
AL West- Mariners, Angels, A’s, Rangers, Team Vancouver,
NL East- Braves, Natinals, Marlins, Phillies, Mets, Team Montreal
NL Central- Pirates, Reds, Cubs, Cardinals, Astros, Breweres, Team Nawlins
NL West- Giants, Rockies, Padres, Dodgers, D’Backs, Team Vegas
More thoughts on expansion and realignment to come!
I heard today that Adam Jones wanted to participate in the Home Run derby.
We know he can hit homers, but I think if he chose to be an “upper-cutter” like Prince Fielder he could put 30 or 40 homers a year, although the think he could do that this year.
I can’t see why Major League Baseball wouldn’t let him in, they’re on their hands and knees begging for participants, why not let Adam Jones in?
What do you think?
Lats night Ian was roobed of his rightful place an An All-Star, instead he part of the final vote. Just a week or so ago he was leading but now all the sudden he’s not guranteed a spot on the roster.
HOW CAN JOE MADDON NOT PUT HIM ON THE TEAM???? Instead he goes with Ben Zobrist???? Ian is much better then Ben Zorbist no doubt about it.
So please vote for Ian.
