Realignment is dead for now

Buster Olney reports that, for all of the recent chatter about realignment, radical or otherwise, Bud Selig’s Gold Star, Blue Ribbon, extra-special committee hasn’t dealt with the issue at all, and that they’re not expected to.  Olney says the subject is “a dead issue.”

The real reason, according to “a highly ranked team executive” is that there is just no will on the part of anyone in baseball to make those kinds of changes.

I’ve always had this sense, but I think that realignment is basically a sports writers’ issue, not anything anyone in the game really cares about.
