What if the Pirates were in the NL East right now instead of the Central?

Against NL Central foes they are 9 and 20...While against the NL East they are 11 and 5

Their record might be entirely different

Plus after the Beltran comment earlier this week facing the Mets again would be a fun series to watch...

Plus getting to see the Phillies more often would be nice...

We SHOULD be in the NL East, not the Central.

I agree. We no longer play two of our longest rivals, the Mets and Phillies, more than one series at home and away. Too bad.

What if the Brewers were actually in the American League where they belong? Six teams in the NL Central? WTF?

Actually I think Milwaukee belongs in the National. That is the cities heritage, really.

I don't know if sending them to the American League would be the thing. I like how the NFL is made up with even divisions.

Maybe, maybe not. They've hosted more seasons as an AL city (28) than as an NL city (13 as the Braves, 12 as the Brewers).

The Milwaukee Brewers were one of the original AL teams but only lasted a year (1901) before becoming the St. Louis Browns.

The Brewers had way too many years with a DH. Miller Beer wasn't founded on a DH.

Robin Yount is dead to me... Dead!
