Report -- Approval of Houston Astros sale conditional on move to American League - ESPN As an Astros fan, and "NL" guy, this really pisses me off. Bud Selig should have been fired years ago, he has such a conflict of interest when it comes to things like this. If balance between the leagues is so important, then either the Brewers should go back to where they came from, or one of the "new" NL temas (Colorado, Arizona, Florida or Washington) should be forced to move. I realize that the AL west is currently the only 4 team division, so why not the D-backs or Rockies? Baseball hasn't really held my attention for a number of years, and this just may finish me off. Interleague play, common umpires and expansion have really killed the appeal of the game for me. I used to love how the two leagues were so different, and you never really knew which was better until the All Star game (remember when this was actually fun to watch?) or World Series. Just making the playoffs was a HUGE deal. Now it's like any other sport. The changes made to make the game more "popular" have just turned it into something I hardly recognize anymore.
