Should the Rockies volunteer to switch leagues?


Somehow, it's just come to my attention that MLB is leaning hard on the potential buyer of the Astros to jump into the AL West - I'd heard there were suggestions and proposals but didn't know there was some actual pressure.

I'm sure this has been discussed before and I may have even taken part but i wonder if this is a good time for us to raise our hands now and volunteer to make the move.  I figure the AL West is a bit more winnable (Texas excepted) then the NL West and we've had some recent success in interleague play (over .500 the past three seasons).  I'm a little afraid of Arizona's future rotation and would like my two favourite teams (that other one would be the ahem, Padres) to play in separate leagues.  Those Red Sox/Yankees series always sell out and we play well against those two powerhouses.  I'm 50/50 on the whole DH thing but think it may justify Giambi since we're keeping him around, anyway.  Plus maybe we could sucker MLB to hand us a sackful of cash to make the move. 

I dunno, my first thought was always to move us into a four-team NL division with the Cubs, Cards, and Brewers but now I'm kind of liking the idea of us in the AL West.  Any other takers or am I on a one-man island?
