BaseballAmerica.com: Expansion Could Trigger Realignment, Longer Postseason
According to BaseballAmerica, an ownership group in Portland has the necessary financing and support for a stadium that would be partially funded by a $150 million grant approved in 2003 by the state of Oregon. That grant apparently is still available.
Here then are the proposed divisions:
East: Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Miami, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Washington.
North: Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, Montreal, both New York franchises and Toronto.
Midwest: Both Chicago franchises, Colorado, Houston, Kansas City, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Texas.
West: Anaheim, Arizona, Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.
