I think the Marlins win in 97, but from 1998-00, that's very possible.

The 98 team was good. But they had a better chance of doing 99-00-01 instead.

What if the Pirates stayed in the NL East while the Braves moved to the NL Central like originally planned? A move that didn't happen because the Braves wanted to form a rivalry with the Marlins that was yet to happen.

Mets have 3 straight division titles in the late 90s? 

Marlins might win 2 division titles. Does this change their playoff opponents? So they still win 2 titles?

Expos have a few division titles? Does this save them in Montreal?

Braves division streak doesn't go as long?

More competition in the Central, do the Braves still go the playoffs in some of those years in the 2000s? 

The Pirates would have won the division in 2015 and possibly 2013.

According to this video (around the 5:44 mark), the Houston Aeros were close to merging with the Colorado Rockies in 1978 (with the team playing in Houston), but the deal fell through:

that would have been interesting to see (would the Aeros still be in Houston today or move).  would also add, what if the Aeros didn't fold and were around in 1979.  would they have been one of the 4 teams to join the NHL.

I think the Aeros would have had a better chance to make it than the Stingers or the Birmingham Bulls (if they were still around in 79).They were one of the league's most successful teams. And, taking five teams would have put the NHL at an even 22. 

 

I also think that the Aeros would still exist today if that merger took place with the Rockies. Houston isn't a bad hockey market.

maybe it could have been the Colorado Aeros (would have been interesting).
