This is actually a topic that gets thrown about quite often. I’m not sure if the NPB would go for it, since they would basically have to concede to the MLB. I’m also not quite sure how the fans would react. Being an island country, I’m not sure if they would welcome the MLB, or ultimately push it away. Sure, there are plenty of MLB fans in Japan, but if it actually meant ripping apart the NPB and only have teams in four key locations…
But if we’re going to talk hypotheticals, I think it would be far more interesting if there was an MLB Asia that consisted of teams from the NPB, KBO, and CPBL.
