In tonight's victory thread, talk about the lack of a "horrible" team in the AL West and the attractiveness of an expansion to level the playing field made me think--where would the best place be for a theoretical expansion team be?
I admit that I know nothing about this and am not terribly aware of any rumors on the subject, so I'm trying to inform myself (and everyone else, too!)
Las Vegas was mentioned in the aforementioned thread and that seems like a good place to me. The population in the area is booming rapidly and could provide a suitable market for an MLB team.
