Athletics President re: keeping the team in Oakland

(1/10) > >>

OCGuy81:
Is Oakland about to lose another franchise to Las Vegas?  Possibly.

Athletics president says they'll pay for the park at the Waterfront. All Oakland has to do is put tax incentive zones, and develop the surrounding area.  The team can leave for places like Vegas, Nashville, or Portland if the city of Oakland does not act right away and votes this project in.

For the As sake I hope they move to Vegas. The Raiders have already benefitted hugely from moving.

Alps:
Vegas can't support MLB, much larger crowds over a much longer time than the other sports. Charlotte, to me, makes the most sense, or San Antonio (always overlooked).

JayhawkCO:
I think I'd vote for Nashville for the place that makes the most sense.

It seems like itd be a good fit. I dont think that would encroach too much on the Braves fan base.
