Maybe there was an easier way

The Seattle Times' Larry Stone has an interesting article, where he looks at how there are a lot of Astros fans who are fairly pissed off about how this whole realignment thing went down (imagine that. I had no idea.)

He also mentions the Crawfish Boxes, so well done to TCB. But here's an interesting little side note:

*It has always been my understanding that original Arizona owner Jerry Colangelo and original Tampa Bay owner Vince Naimoli signed agreements upon their entrance into baseball that they could be made to switch leagues without their approval after two years. I honestly don't know if that agreement is still in place -- I'm doing some digging.

Well, well. Should this prove to be true, I'm going to get my boxers right in a wad. We will also do some digging...

Not the first time I've heard that about AZ.

As for TB, they've been in the papers in the last 6 mos. openly inviting the idea... would actually make a lot of sense to move TB to NL East, and WAS to AL East.
