    If ??

    If the BRAVES had never left BOSTON does anyone think they would have cross town rivalry like the CUBS and WHITE SOX ?

    Red Sox/Yankee rivalry was [is] too strong for that, I think.

    No

    No, I don't think so. I think they would have left eventually, anyway. If not Milwaukee, maybe they would have went to Atlanta earlier than they did.

    Would it be because the Boston/New England area fan base cannot support 2 teams ?

    Yes. Boston had already made its choice.

    And the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry in its rabid form is of rather recent vintage. Don't think it would have had much effect on the Braves even if they had stayed.
