One of the things I know has always been an issue in real life MLB expansions are the overlaps with existing media markets. Obviously all of those are relatively close to major markets, but I think New Orleans makes the most sense for your eastern expansions (no overlap with Raleigh or Grand Rapids/Cincinnati/Indianapolis.)

As far as the west goes, my initial instinct is Austin (because one team in Texas is too few), but that feels like that's a lot of expansion on Houston's doorstep. I'd probably go Tuscon to expand into newer territory.
