My first thought is "How many fans are going to be upset because their team loses/gains the DH?"

The DH rule would have to come into play or eliminated...that would be confusing.

And I mean a team like the White Sox have been in the AL forever...just moving them to the NL isn't that easy.

Oye, I hate these radical realignment proposals. It solves really nothing other than a shake-up. Another fine piece of writing from Rosenthal (no fan here).

it would be COOL but it is not LIKELY

i like the cards division but switching up the NL and AL like that just isnt going to happen
