Two Teams for a Town in a Sport. Who has got Next?

Two teams for a town.

New York area has 2 teams in each of the big five.
LA has two basketball and baseball teams while they used to have football,....two of them.
The three biggest towns in America have two diamond teams.  Angels, Dodgers, Yankees, Mets, Cubs White Sox.

Who has got next?  And which sport will it be?
Who are the 4th largest markets?  Yep, I said markets.  How will the populations change in ten years?
-Population-wise.....Metro areas:  D.C., followed by Boston, the Bay and Philly (

-Moneywise, it's the Washington D.C. area (article, followed by Houston, then Dallas and The Bay.

-TV marketwise:  Philadelphia, followed by Dallas, the Bay and Boston.

TV market might be the most business insight with concerns to expansion in professional sports.

I'm still interested in exploring more of my camp regional team argument.
With the Boston and Philadelphia areas listed I could see another NBA or even MLB team named New England sharing camp with the northern and southern stretches of the Northeast Seaboard.

See more expansion and relocation talk for football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer on my blog (starting in Feb 2014, see table of contents/archive):  Major League/Pro Expansion <CLICK> 
And please feel free to contribute your two cents with mine.
