    Looks like the A's are finally going to move. I wonder if Vancouver will make a bid...

    @Discoverer. Per your question what i have against catchers. I feel like we are so ridiculously deep at catcher right now that we should be focused elsewhere. I know bpa and all that jazz but man even just the risk on catchers I just don’t like using a first round pick to go after another one. We have crazy youth and depth at catcher and we are tied to I believe the best international catcher for the next signing class. My preference is outfield or pitcher all things being equal

    The article almost tells you it’s Vegas. That would be my bet as well.

    Just a tactic to put the pressure on Oakland

    Oakland's not moving. They're just trying to pressure the city/state into sorting out their need for a better stadium.

    And Vancouver is probably no better than 5th/6th on a potential list of relocation destinations. There isn't a suitable baseball stadium here (BC Place doesn't count) and I'm not sure there's an easy/ready place to build one on short notice.

    I am super high on him. I really hope they don't trade him. He's only 21 too.

    Hagen Danner pitched the 10th inning for Vancouver. Struck out 1, walked 1(on 10 pitches), hit 1 batter. Gave up 1 run that I assume is unearned since it's the runner that starts the inning on 2nd base in extras.

    I was just thinking tonight that maybe Vlad could have a Gold Glove in his future at 1B.

    Also stoked I have both SWR ad Moreno on my dynasty team.

    Quality topic title

    I found this shirt at a game a couple years ago right after Vlad got called up and it is going to get some serious wear this summer.

    Not sure if they can with Vancouver so close to Seattle, there was talk years ago about an expansion team in Vancouver and they said MLB would never give Vancouver a team because it infringes on Seattle's territorial rights.

    This .. if there's another Canadian MLB team it would be Montreal.

    But I'd say Tampa moving there (eventually) is more likely.

    A's going to Vegas make a lot of sense. The success of the Golden Knights and now the Raiders moving there show it can be a legit sports city.

    Oakland's a declining city. They're in an old stadium that the franchise doesn't own. Their city government is hostile to its pro sports franchises. There's probably no long term future for any major league sports franchises in that city especially with other pro franchises in adjacent cities.

    For relocation, I'm thinking Nashville, somewhere in the Carolinas, Las Vegas, how about this wildcard: Austin Texas, there's a lot of money in Austin. The MLB isn't going to be going across the border with inflation going through the roof (although much of the inflation is hidden in the stock market and cryptocurrencies at the moment).

    I would imagine its either a negotiating tactic to get a new stadium or the owner has just had enough of being a poor team. Not sure how much of that movie with Brad Pitt is true and how much is Hollywood but one trade the A's GM made with the Red Sox, the Red Sox had to supply the A's pop machine in the club house for three years so the players wouldn't have to buy their own drinks.

    Austin would be my pick as well - seems to be where the new Silicon Valley-esque money is flowing. I think over the past year or so the likelihood of them/Tampa (or both) moving has increased a ton.

    Vegas is an interesting pick but I don't know if they'll build a third new stadium in such a short time. Austin/Portland are my top two.
