Harrold Reynolds was recently on Sportnet 650 and he seemed to think that a couple expansion teams were coming in the near future and realignment is inevitable when that does happen.

Would be nice to get the Expos back, but corporate support at the moment is still slim, so I doubt it'd happen. I'm surprised a western Canada team isn't there yet. As for that whole re-alignment, I don't know if it's a joke or not, or just a wacky proposal, but MLB is probably the most traditional in their approach to changes. To make that drastic of a change to go to DH across the board and at the same time changing the names while re-aligning the divisions? Too much to handle. Those types of changes would probably be done over 20 years the way they move. Hard to conceive they'd do that within 2.

The DH is definitely going to be league wide soon. Owners are tired of risking their pitchers for next to nothing. All Blue Jays pitchers are hurt right now, imagine if they had to hit on a regular basis.

Watching an NL game is not fun anymore. The ball is being put into play less and less these days and then to finally have a rally of some sort killed because the pitcher strikes out.
