The Star-Telegram's Jennifer Floyd Engel talks about realignment and the Astros, and how much of a drag both of those things are:
Of course, the Rangers want to play Houston more. It fills up The Ballpark and leads to a lot of Ws. And I like the idea of putting the Astros and Rangers in the same league, love the idea of the Rangers playing in a jerry-rigged AL West with them and love, love the idea of not having to stay up until midnight to watch division baseball in September when every game matters...Either bring Houston to the AL, or do not. Just do not bring them back to Arlington and call this fun. What we do not need is to see more Astros baseball.
Or any more interleague play.
