DateQuestionAnswer
2016-06-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)How long until baseball expands again? Where will it be? Is there enough interest in Europe?
(Ian from NYC)
I doubt it expands for a while, I doubt owners want to cut more into their revenue pie, plus pay more in revenue sharing.

Logistically you couldn't do Europe but it is interesting. The game is growing over there and they have sent players from countries you wouldn't expect are in the US playing! For example:
The Twins have a player from Moldova- RHP Vadim Balan
The Yankees have a player from Poland- LHP Artur Strzalka
The Reds had a former player from Slovakia- LHP Jakub Izold
The Pirates have players from Lithuania (RHP Dovydas Neverauskas), India (LHP Rinku Singh, RHP Dinesh Patel), South Africa (SS Gift Ngoepe)

Plus there have been players from Germany (Donald Lutz), Italy (Alex Liddi) and other places to have major leaguers. It's exciting to see the game grow world-wide. (Steve Givarz)
