Wouldn't a Southland brand of baseball be badass in Nashville and Charlotte? Aren't the Braves boring? I mean to say boring outside of the capital of the south or some kid in Mobile who thinks the "A" stands for Bama.
So wouldn't a team playing 40 games in Nashville and 40 in Charlotte work out well? Wouldn't their apparel sales kill it in Dixieland?
Big league baseball requires over some $80 billion in a city to hold a team. That's double the next sports market requirement and five times that of the least (Major League Soccer). Recently, Nashville surpassed the $100 billion mark.
Other duo's I've thought of are a Las Vegas-Montreal Internationals (align'able in any division) or an East Coast Expos brand in Montreal and Charlotte. The West Coast Athletics of Las Vegas and Portland, also. The Royals could share time in Omaha, like the Kansas City Kings NBA team did way back when. Think Midland brand. And on and on thematically in my blog.
I say there is a big gap from Houston to Atlanta to the bounds of Cardinals, Reds and Nationals Nations, echoing from the hollers of Arkansas and the Appalachian Mountains.
Do you think Pioneers, Eagles or something else sounds better?
Doesn't this article make the likes of Montreal, Nashville, Charlotte, Portland and Las Vegas consider my travel-tag-team concept?: bizjournals.com/bizjournals/news/2015/04/09/scenario02.html?page=all

Atlanta having two baseball teams ??? Existing infrastructure strengthens the argument for a team called "Southern".
