Baseball is a sport of history, of honor and of respect. It is a game that should be held in a place of honor. So where am I going with this nonsense...
Reallignment: there shouldn't need to be a discussion of where a team should end up in major league baseball; what league and division a team will be playing in. I understand that teams have been added and a total now of 30 teams play america's pasttime. The rules, though, at this time are different, so the fight does have to rage. The National League in my opinion is correct in keeping the game as pure as possible. Why can't a pitcher hit, isn't he an athelete just like the rest of the players? Didn't he play when he was young and learn how to pitch AND hit? Before reallignment, lets gets the rules straight and lets start with NO DH allowed.
Rivalries? MLB is talking about reallignment and moving the Astros to the AL so that they can have a rivalry with the Rangers and have said this would be a natural rivalry, an in-state rivalry. I want an in-state World Series not an in state rivalry. Let the Astros go back to the NL West and gain the rivalry they had with the Dodgers. Then MLB could move a team from the NL West to the AL West: Arizona or Colorado.
Here's my plan:
Question of the day: Ed Wade calls and asks for your opinion on how to get this Astros team back to the top - what is your answer?
