    Yeah, it's a red herring I guess.

    Trippin....I haven't heard that since the 60's.

    There are a number of teams in MLB that proudly identify with their Statehood. Besides most of the country east of the Mississippi would think of Portland Main getting a team.
    Oregon........has a nice feel to it.
    Since we know that Oregon would never have another MLB team why not not Oregon? Spread the love and excitement, plus from a marketing stand point it would be better, imo.
    But really I don't care one way or the other, just get me MLB team.

    Yes, "a number". 3. A very low number, but a number just the same.

    All numbers are the same. Taking sides and saying one number is better than another is what divides this country.

    that philosophy would make math so much easier.

    Think I can convince my creditors to adopt that philosophy? Or the Allen estate, for that matter?

    You're right about one--I missed the Twins.

    The Yanks and Mets are very much NYC, not NY state.

    You said "proudly identify with their statehood". The "Bronx Bombers" and the "Metropolitans" have never done anything of the sort.

    If it can be interpreted either way, you can't claim it either.

    Call a team NY and play in New Jersey.
    New reps I think 6 states.
    GS rep a broader area than just Oak or SF

    Bottom line, it will come down to ownership and what makes more since from a marketing stand point.
