Nobody has mentioned Louisville, which lost a team when the National League contracted in 1899. IIRC. Louisville had the firstbminor league team to exceed 1,000,000.
Louisville is relatively close to Cincinnati already though (another small market team) and I just don't think that region would be able to support 2 major league teams. Most Kentucky fans are already going to be Reds or to a much lesser extent Cardinals fans anyway so I think the fans you get would be cannibalizing from Cincinnati.
