Houston moving to AL if realignment occurs

23

FSN Arizona is reporting that MLB has told the D'backs they won't be moving to the AL if baseball realigns. Arizona and Houston have both been talked about as candidates to move to the AL but the report states that the move of the Astros to the AL West is a precondition of the sale of the team to Jim Crane. This would also create a natural Texas-Houston rivalry and give the Rangers another team in their division in the same time zone, so this move seems to make the most sense. Selig said yesterday that realignment isn't on the table at the moment so this likely won't happen until 2013 at the earliest.
