    I'm torn between being impressed and wanting to mock the minor leagues.

    So...it doesn't seem like making a snide comment about "aiming" for 2020 has a point. you know, since it's still 2019, and "aiming for" kind of implies they're being hopeful than something concrete.

    I know you're still kinda new here, but that's kind of BGD's m.o., he'll try to say things that sound like he is cynical or making some kind of point, when it's usually taken waaaaaaaay out of context or has no basis in logic or facts.

    I.e., the "I hear Lillard drinks like a fish", a comment he made years ago that completely highlights what I'm talking about. He's saying "Lillard" instead of Damian, because of how Houston (Damians brother) was also mentioned in the post, and therefore he can have an out. "I never actually said Damian" (tho to my knowledge, he has never said that)

    You know, "Rosie the Riveter"?

    Rose City Riveters?

    Is this thing on?

    Two things come to mind.

    1. I like how Portland isn't being used as leverage.
    2. It's frustrating how Portland isn't being used as leverage. That was one of the things that PDP kind of implied they were fine with. It just makes me feel like it's an even bigger pipe dream/waste of time than it was before.

    God it's annoying that Vegas is getting pro teams before us. They got hockey, football, and possibly baseball all in a span of a decade. We have a larger metropolitan area.

    Saw the site in Vegas this summer where their new baseball stadium is going up. Real close to the football stadium. If you build it, they will come.

    Isn't it open air? I don't know how they can play MLB ball in 110-115 degree weather?

    Well, it helps that they can pretty much do whatever the hell they want there, and in Portland they ban urinals in bathrooms.

    I think, though, this is just the A's using Vegas as leverage. But the cynic in me thinks even if the A's move to Vegas, and the Rays move to Montreal, MLB won't expand. And even if it does expand, they'll probably try to move back to Oakland and Tampa Bay (or another city not named Portland).

    I'd be much more excited about an expansion team so I'm fine with this move.
