Finding cold comfort in geographic impossibilities

We could probably recycle this post year-in and year-out, but here goes:

If the Blue Jays were in the National League West, they'd be in first place.

Not that we can take much solace in such wishful thinking. But if there were some sort of massive tectonic upheaval that resulted in Toronto moving about 4000 miles west, then we would be printing off our playoff tickets at home (for a nominal fee.)

I'd settle for the AL Central. Put Detroit in the East - makes as much sense.

Don't start telling people about realignment- ESPN had a thing about curing the AL/NL disparty by creating a Northeast superdivision, with both New York teams, Boston, Philly, and Toronto. Yikes.

Goddam it! Well, maybe if we can have two Wild Cards from that division.

Torgen said...

If we're realigning the teams based on how good they are, why not have them be different sizes--ie by having each division with a roughly equal payroll, rather than a roughly equal number of teams?

Just relocate the Jays to Vancouver (and then we'd never get to see games live and every game on tv would be ridiculously late or early, but we'd go to the playoffs more often).

Yikes...we never even put two and two together on the earthquake and our wishes for geographic shifting...

That's messed up.

And since you asked: 1, 11, 12, 22, 37, 39.
