Wow, there's absolutely a worse owner than the Angelos family in MLB.

Yeah, could never argue Angelos was 30th of 30.

Pro Sports Owner: We want to move to your city.

 

Mayor: Yeahhhh, no thanks.

 

That's gotta be a first.

Sounds more like she'd like the A's, but where the stadium is to be located is out of her control, and the A's owner hasn't been very open with county officials.

The mayor has no say in this, Clark County does. I’m betting it still happens. But the mayor makes some great points. Building the stadium on the actual strip is just insane.

Read more to me like she wants MLB, but she doesn't want John Fisher. And who can blame her?

Pretty amusing that an owner who "couldn't afford" to invest in the team or a new stadium in Oakland has no problem taking huge revenue hits from 2023-2027 (and years before 2023) just to get his subsidized stadium in 2028.

 

Since he's a billionaire I'm sure he'll make out in the end because people like him created the system.  Sad state of American sports.

Which means there will only be about 25k empty seats per game....better than now, I guess.

Offense still isn't much, but a solid enough rotation and dominant BP. They aren't the pushover they've been the past couple seasons. Shame what them and their fans are going through. Oakland is a rowdy baseball town when they're good (late 90s through the early mid 2000s).

Even though he's under team control through 2029, the A's would be wise to trade him. Relievers are volatile, he may very well have a great career. But he could also get figured out, and be just a good BP arm. And even if you're absolutely convinced he'll be the former, flipping him for a position player(s) adds so much more to your roster. Losing teams don't need a closer. The A's don't look so bad, because that division isn't that great.   


Good news! I saw a dog today.
