Royals to the NL?

    So the team dismissed the rumor according to the KC Star,

    But would the Royals be in a better position to compete in the NL Central?

    I think it's blasphemy; it'd be like the Green Bay Packers or the Chicago Bears jumping to the AFC....

    You're not going to make the Central seven teams, right? So.... they'd go to the West?

    I don't see how this works, since you'd need at least one interleague series every rotation with the 17-13 split in the leagues.

    The Royals would finish fourth in the NL Central. So it would be a minor improvement, but still, they would be cellar-dwellers.

    Pitchers step in the batter's box in real baseball.

    I think the story said the Brewers would go to the AL. Where they'd go 70-92 again. But at least Prince Fielder could DH and they could keep Matt LaPorta.

    How awesome would it be to see a Pirates-Royals series at least once a month? I'd drive to Pittsburgh to watch it. Fuck, I'd drive to Kansas City to watch it.

    And we sit here and talk about cut backs and wonder why newspapers are no longer relevant. These two responses show us one thing: Journalist apparently can't read, so how the hell can anyone expect them to write. The Brewers moving to the AL was one of the first things I noticed in the article.

    Okay I'm getting off my soapbox now.

    Eh, didn't read it, was reacting to AM's conclusion. But why the Royals? So they can have the KC-St. Louis rivalry rekindled?

    Damn right I would!

    What got me years ago, when they realigned, is that I always felt the Royals made a mistake in passing on the NL. Sure, they've always been AL and feel the fans want to stay in the AL, but rivalries with St. Louis and the Cubs -- not to mention all the fans they would bring in for each of those series -- would have been worth a serious look.

    Good points.

    If this happens, the Bucs and the Royals have to be scheduled for a late week in September, right? They could both be a combined 80 games out of first place!

    What about realigning the divisions with the Marlins, Bucs, Royals, Reds and Nationals in a Cost Cutter division? The fail could be legendary.
