Pittsburgh (KDKA)- With Major League Baseball considering some form of realignment, former Cincinnati Reds GM and current ESPN analyst Jim Bowden developed his own plan.

Bowden made his changes based on geographic realignment with six divisions of five teams each.

Bowden admits his changes would be radical, but I think they make perfect sense.

Jim Bowden’s Geographic Realignment Proposal:

AMERICAN CONFERENCE:
Eastern Division:
Boston Red Sox
NY Mets
NY Yankees
Philadelphia Phillies
Toronto Blue Jays

Central Division:
Cincinnati Reds
Cleveland Indians
Detroit Tigers
Minnesota Twins
Pittsburgh Pirates

Midwest Division:
Chicago Cubs
Chicago White Sox
Kansas City Royals
Milwaukee Brewers
St. Louis Cardinals

NATIONAL CONFERENCE:
Southeast Division:
Atlanta Braves
Baltimore Orioles
Florida Marlins
Tampa Bay Rays
Washington Nationals

Western Division:
Arizona Diamondbacks
Colorado Rockies
Houston Astros
Seattle Mariners
Texas Rangers

California Division:
Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles Dodgers
Oakland Athletics
San Diego Padres
San Francisco Giants
