Radical Realignment

How the leagues should be organized.

It came as a complete shock when I heard that MLB was considering the elimination of the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota was not the original home of the Washington Senators (obviously), but as it descended from that team, it arguably remains one of the original American League franchises. Montreal? OK, I'll buy that. Florida? Who cares? But Minnesota?

Anyway, we began thinking about the screwy way the divisions are aligned now. More teams in the AL than the NL--even though there is an evenly divisible number of teams. Only four teams in the AL West, while there are six in the NL Central... So, assuming expansion (this exercise was done last year, before it went from "we need more teams" to "who can we axe"), here is our proposal for the future of the Major Leagues.
