MLB: Top 15 Cities the Cleveland Indians Should Consider for Relocation

After the 2010 season, it has become apparent that there are a few teams that would probably be well served by relocating.  Attendance figures are very low.  Fan appreciation is even lower.  Revenues...well we won't get into how bad these must be.

The worst teams in MLB (by attendance) are the following:

The Cleveland Indians had a miserable attendance record last year with an average fan appearance of 17,435.  This could be due to a number of reasons, but the systematic dismantling of a once great team by the Dolan family could have something to do with this. (Feel free to add any comments or provide any insights, Indians fans.)

Coming in a close second with an average fan appearance of 17,511 are the Oakland Athletics.  This is more than likely a result of the A's being the second-best team in a 20 square mile area, with the other being World Series Champions.

Hot on the trails of these teams are the Florida Marlins with an average fan base of 18,953. The Marlins have actually won a World Series in the modern era of baseball, yet still can't seem to keep fans interested. This is probably due to the fact that Spring Training occurs within walking distance and it just makes more economic sense to see the team during Spring. (Are you listening Rays?)

The following are the top 15 U.S. cities, in no particular order, that might actually do well with a MLB team.
