This is why major league baseball needs to contract. Fewer teams will mean stronger teams and more parity. It will also make games much more interesting. It may not help viewership in cities that lose teams, but the league itself - at least the quality of play - will be much improved and interesting for the lay fan. It is a travesty that teams like Baltimore has been putting out on the field for the last several years should be in the same league with teams full of legitimate big league players. The talent gap between the haves and have nots in the league is way too big to make the league interesting.
