    The Nashville Stars could be MLB's next team – and baseball's first Black-owned club

    looks like portland has some heavy hitters in competing for a team through either expansion or if one of the d-rays/A's leave their current cities'.
    The Music City Baseball group, led by businessman John Loar, former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, and including Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa and Negro Leagues Baseball Museum president Bob Kendrick, gained considerable clout Monday when former GM Dave Dombrowski joined the team

    Nashville would be very attractive as its a spectacular city offering a variety of top notch entertainment, and unbelievably clean.

    Portlands sports motto should be
    Always a bridesmaid, never a bride...

    I hear PDP has put on 15 pounds of muscle.



    I don't care if someone else made that joke first!

    And the summer isn't even over yet! Just imagine what the PDP looks like when the fall starts.

    C'mon man! Don't be such a buzzkill. They have , maybe the finest retractable roof stadium design ready to go. The land, the backing. There will be 2 new teams eventually , and 2 existing teams (A's, Rays) that can't seem to seal the deal on a new stadium. Portland is in the running. Men with vision get things done. Ever heard of Harry Glickman.

    Harry had more than a vision, he had a plan

    They're still waiting on MLB to expand, which could happen to give owners a boost in revenue from expansion fees since they lost so much.

    It means nothing either way that there hasn't been any activity.

    They’re still trying to get 50k signatures. Pathetic.

    As you well know the signature thing means nothing in terms of whether or not they'd get a team.

    What is there even to support right now? This group is a joke. They have done nothing to excite people.

    My brother bought me a PDP hat for Christmas a couple years ago that I like and wear at least once a week. Has a cool old english P on it. Nobody knows what it stands for which makes me feel kind of cool.

    They do have a plan. They have the stadium plan ready to go. They've had meetings with the Commish. They are in the discussion now. I'm sure Mike Barrett would love to show you that they have a plan.

    you can understand why people are skeptical, right? I mean even more than the ones who always think they know more than everyone else.
