    I miss Joel. He wasn't perfect, but he was the kind of toughguy big man that every team needs.

    YES!!!!! I hope this happens or they just move to Montreal.

    I want an expansion team! That way we can start everything new. Expansion won't happen until the A's and Rays situations are resolved.

    What a ridiculous notion. Why would anyone in TB go to the early season games?

    Maybe it's just me but it would be fun to go to Tampa and go to a game with so few people there. It's like you have the stadium to yourself! Imagine how easy it would be to go after foul balls and home runs.

    Is the implication the reason SD changed so much was the stadium?

    Yeah, I think there is an implied causation there when the situation is far more complex.

    The plan was to build a whole district around the ball park. This has been super effective in Denver and now Atlanta too. This is what they want to do in Portland. It's also what Paul Allen wanted to do around the Rose Garden too but they were pretty limited by space in that area.

    If the stadium gets built at T2 that whole area will become restaurants, shops, offices, and living space.

    I'm not familiar with the Denver and Atlanta projects, but San Diego was a very different situation than T2. When the stadium was built in SD, the convention center was already across the street. In addition, there was a underutilized warehouse district surrounding the ballpark that could be redeveloped, a la the Pearl district here. The ballpark site was also at the hub of the existing trolley system.

    None of that exists at T2. Everything has to be built from scratch. That doesn't mean it won't work - but SD is not the model.
