So, if an NL team is switching leagues, why does it have to be the Houston Astros, a team that has been in the National League since 1962. It seems like baseball is now turning against its own history. I mean, they already moved the Milwaukee Brewers to the NL before 1998 after being an AL team since 1969. Why can't they just go back to the league that they started in? They are a midwest team an can play in the AL West. How about Colorado or Arizona, two western regional teams who have only been in existence since 1993 and 1998, respectively?
Baseball should just try to stay the same way it has been. Its not like they are trying to recruit new fans. Changing the game any more is not going to draw more people. We've gone through expansion, 162 game seasons, the designated hitter, interleague games, the now twice expanded postseason and now randomly switching teams between leagues and playing interleague games every day. And I suppose these are the same people who robots as umpires just so every call can be right, every time. I say just leave the game alone and keep the history as consistent as it could be.
