Carolina the media keeps pushing Carolina and Portland as the two front runners for MLB expansion. They want to add two more teams which makes little sense given the dour situations for the Florida teams. If it isn't Charlotte could it be the Raleigh/Durham area? Sounds like they would have to build a brand new ballpark in Charlotte. Right there is no way they could retrofit a minor league stadium into a modern MLB ball park. These new baseball ball parks are incredible with all the bells and whistles. They are superior to the old ballparks in terms of sight lines, comfort etc. And they cost a fortune. Based on what you are saying it sure doesn't sound like Charlotte is anywhere near of getting an MLB franchise. People in Hartford are still pissed off about the Carolina Hurricanes who originally were the Hartford Whalers. I don't think they are allowed to play the Whalers fight song though which is one of the killer team songs of all time. And for our sake lets hope Mike Trout overcomes his listless lineup and finds a way to hit big. Keep up the good work.
