    Never made sense to move the Brewers to the National League

    It's partly a geographical thing too though. They needed a move in the west/southwest of the country.

    It's kind of funny, during the season I casually mentioned the Astros moving to the AL West would make sense. Never thought it would actually happen.

    If they really needed to even it out to 15 teams for each league,

    I'd rather that they moved KC to the AL West

    and switch Milwaukee back to the AL Central...


    in all their 40+ years of existence, the Astros have been an NL team and Houston has been an NL city...

    it sucks even more that their doing this in order to facilitate interleague play, which I've never liked...

    and I hate the prospect of even more 5-game post-season series... I believe all post-season series should be 7-game affairs...
