  1. Expansion and Realignment

    The Area around Portland is beautiful, Lakes, Rivers, forest, and Mt Hood. It rains way more in New Orleans than Portland. I'd live there.
  2. Expansion and Realignment

    You could bet on every pitch: curve ball, change up, fast ball, pop up, single to a HR. Everything would be up for grabs.

    Why the long face Joe Buck?
  4. Rough year for Angel fans

    This is the very definition of Band Wagon Fan.
  5. Rough year for Angel fans

    Except for when we play the NLW teams we play the Dodgers 4 times a year. 2 in each park.
  6. Rough year for Angel fans

    The only ALW teams that have WS rings are the Angels and the A's. It's been 28 years since the A's won a WS. So we are the last team to win a WS in the ALW. I for one want it to remain that way. I guess the Yankees would be the least objectionable to win this year to me.

    Portland has a bigger fan base to draw from than Los Vegas and has the financing available according to the linked article. Las Vegas is already on the hook to build a new football stadium, can they afford both?

    Owner seemed pretty set on staying in Oakland and the financing is in place. They have been jumping through hoops for years looking at other cities and haven't found one. No they're staying count on it.
  11. Expansion and Realignment

    How would there still be 2 leagues if they went with just 4 division with 8 teams each? What north and west in one and south and east in the other? I don't think so. They would just combine the two leagues with is why I think it will never happen. They may get 2 expansion teams alright, but keep the two leagues with only 4 teams in 4 divisions in each league if they do it at all.

    Try and get players on a trade with no trade contracts or sign a FA because, yes it is up to them. Besides at 7,382 feet above sea level it wouldn't be baseball as we know it. The air pollution is worse than the 50s and 60s in SoCal. I remember playing sports in the summer as a teenager and having chest pains and sore eyes from the smog. There hasn't been any smog alerts here since the 70s but they were common earlier.
  13. Expansion and Realignment

    Without two expansion teams that whole plan falls apart. Portland seems to be able to support a basketball franchise. Portland metropolitan area. includes Clackamas, Columbia, Multnomah, Washington and Yamhill counties, Oregon and Clark and Skamania counties, Washington. 2015 population: 2,389,228. Las Vegas at 583,756
