Don't Feed the Greed? What does that mean...

Twins to the National League?

Rate this Entry

This is out of left field, but worthy of a conspiracy buff’s amusing post: Are the Twins headed to the National League?

1) We are stocking up on NL pitchers.
2) Target Field is a pitcher’s park. It wasn’tnecessarily built for the NL game, but the fact is that the park plays more like an NL venue. You can’t rebuild the park for the AL game, but you could change leagues…
3) Financially, Milwaukee and Minneapolis could benefit by splitting 21 games a year. 21 games of full stands. Right now MN doesn’t have a state-to-state rival. Kinda makes sense, right…

How long did it take for Milwaukee to switch leagues, and Houston?

Okay, I am ready for the naysayers to have me for Monday lunch. What say you?

    Might make sense to trade with Cinncinatti, as they would benefit from Detroit and Cleveland and we would pick up Minwaukee and St. Louis(which would be a better draw than Kansas City).

    Gardy would love the chance to sac bunt more often.

    I think it's unlikely anyone changes leagues unless there is expansion, and even then I envision one team each added to AL and NL. More likely that the DH goes to both leagues than Twins go to the NL. But I like the idea. I'd like to see more geographicly shaped divisons/leagues.
