Expansion of Major League Baseball (MLB) has been a topic of discussion for years and could have an impact on the league’s current alignment. The addition of new teams would change the number of teams in each division and could necessitate a re-alignment of the divisions, conferences, or both.
there are many factors to consider before expanding the league and re-aligning the teams, including the financial impact on current and new teams, the impact on the competitive balance of the league, and the impact on fan support and attendance.
Re-alignment would aim to balance the number of teams in each division and ensure competitive fairness. It could also result in changes to the scheduling format, playoff structure, and travel schedules for teams.
