I would love an expansion team in Ohio as a share. Once a month for a match each in Cleveland and Cincinnati for a team named "Ohio Divided" sounds appropriate to me. Two big stadiums are already set for play. Throw Toledo in the mix with an absence of a Detroit franchise.
Off hand, in my opinion there are plenty of places in front of Cinci for a more feasible MLS spread. Just like with the NBA I think Cincinnati ranks with Pittsburgh and St. Louis in landing a team, though I think St. Louis is likeliest of the bunch. But first I see these places landing one: Charlotte, Minnesota, central Texas (likely San Antonio), and Las Vegas. There are other one horse towns like Oklahoma City and Sacramento or tumbleweeds like Omaha/Lincoln or Austin. All of the leagues are eyeballing Vegas as a sweet (if not forbidden) fruit. It's like a tumbleweed with Christmas lights and a strobe in the middle.
