Really, you could do the West Coast Athletics in the likes of Oakland, Portland, Las Vegas and/or Vancouver and resurrect the Expos as the East Coast Expos. If the Expos were the new team (again) the Rays could vacate Tampa for Charlotte AND Nashville. There are a few ways to dice it. If you wanted a south of the border counterpart to Canada, a Porltand-Charlotte Coastal City Flights (or Jets) ball club could win the hearts of those towns. At least better some than none right? The airliner part is certainly respective of their economies. Would you call the new broader Canadian franchise the Flights? The Pack?
But to sure up the Canadian market and bring about more solidarity outside of the Blue Jays, the 'Jacks playing in east and west Canada's Montreal and Vancouver, I see a more expansive way forward for MLB.
Since apparently, toe-tapping markets isn't looking so great for the league anytime soon, toss the ideas around in your mind.
