    Expansion and Charlotte....

    I know that MLB is talking expansion again, although I think there isn't enough ML talent around to do that.....see 2017 White Sox and others.........but Charlotte has been mentioned as a strong possibility.

    Would the Sox benefit with a move to Charlotte in this scenario? They have a built in fan base there.

    Chicago would not miss them.......jus sayin'....

    An MLB team in Charlotte is very possible but not at the expense of Chicago.

    Sox have plenty of fans. Moving to Charlotte would be a disaster.

    I'd give up on the mlb if the sox moved. I certainly wouldn't follow them.

    I'm pretty sure expansion to charlotte would mean a new team there, not moving the sox there

    Oakland and Tampa would go before the league allowed the White Sox to move.

    Yeah, but the first sentence says making the MLB even bigger...not teams moving to new markets. Those teams in the NFL moved to those markets because of their owners.

    Mexico City and Montreal are the favorites for new teams.

    I think there is enough talent for 2 more teams.

    I'd vote for Montreal and Vegas

    I'd like to expand the rosters too ...

    Expansion: YES

    Montreal and San Antonio

    it's going to happen, most likely Charlotte or Portland get the nod over SA, but I can still dream.
