In a Baseball America story, Hall of Fame baseball writer Tracy Ringolsby cited a plan that would address concerns about the demand of travel and the lack of days off in the current 162-game schedule in the event that MLB expands to Portland and Montreal.
Ringolsby writes: "One proposal would be to geographically restructure into four divisions, which would create a major reduction in travel, particularly for teams on the East Coast and West Coast, and add to the natural rivalries."
What about the Twins, though?
The plan cited by Ringolsby includes a Midwest Division that would include the Cubs, White Sox, Colorado, Houston, Kansas City, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Texas. Is there a team missing from the "Midwest?"
That would be the ... Twins.
You could find them in the North Division with the Yankees, Mets, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Cleveland and Detroit.
