The Viability of Baseball Franchises
The Chronology of current major league franchises' beginnings
For this project, I will focus on these current franchises and issues in major league baseball:
Should the Minnesota Twins be contracted?
Should the close proxmity of the Orioles prevent baseball in the capital?
* Expos are out?
Can baseball survive in Montreal?
* Safe at what home?
What current U.S. city without a team would best be able to support one?
I feel it is important to note that much of my analysis is incomplete as it ignores important factors that I believe are determinants of a baseball franchises viability. Such factors local values and the success of the baseball teams on the field. This will be a challenge in gaining an accurate analysis of these situations.
