This will continue for decades to come so those cities you claim aren't MLB markets will be.
12 years from now? Those Sun Belt cities will be unlivable. It's not like Arizona where it's a "dry heat". The climate in those cities is going to resemble Kuala Lumpur. Chicago winters will be mild, and we have a great supply of water here. No, in 12 years, people are going to be moving to Chicago, not away from it.
