Sure, sure - makes sense to discuss in the MLB page. But seeing, in the Orioles section, a thread titled Las Vegas Orioles is just fucking horrible. I'm sick of it.
I mean I guess, if I'm a national writer, barely follow baseball, and want to stir up some drama, sure I can see lumping them in there.
If you purely say who are the best candidates to move to LV, you'd look at the smallest markets first right? The O's are there right now, but the stadium alone is reason they aren't moving. The Nats are probably close to them in the market rankings, but again, recent stadium.
OAK makes the most sense, sharing the Bay Area market, but they are angling to stay there but move to wealthier SJ and try their luck there in a new stadium. 5th oldest stadium.
TB makes sense, their stadium is a dump, but I thought I remembered reading they are working on a deal for a new one...no idea why though. It's actually 8th oldest now just ahead of TOR. 1990...is that crazy?? MIA could go on this list except it has the newest stadium in baseball.
KC is a tiny market, with the 6th oldest stadium. But there's no baseball anywhere else near by, so not sure it makes sense to strip it out of there.
ANA has one of the oldest stadiums (4th) and shares a market...pretty much...makes some sense to me, especially with Trout locked up. BUT Moreno is one of the better owners in the game, and will spend to keep them competitive...just a question of can he get a new stadium.
TOR is the 7th oldest stadium in MLB, and it's questionable if Canada can hold up as a home long term. There has been talks in the past decade of them moving somewhere. I like where it is, but then when you figure in exchange rates, and if they can get a new stadium.
The 3 older than these are iconic (LAD, BOS, CHC) so unless there's a NYY type of scenario I don't know when if they get redone, and all are HUGE market teams.
Should be mentioned, TEX has a new stadium in the works. TB and OAK have been trying to get new ones approved...but politics and financing has had them on ice.
