So here's the solution...

- The Arizona Diamondbacks, who aren't going to get a new subsidized stadium, become...

- The Baltimore Orioles, who have a nice stadium but revenue issues, so they in turn become...

- The Seattle Mariners, who give up their nice stadium and decent revenues to become...

- The Arizona Diamondbacks?

 

Anyone for the Baltimore Diamondbacks?  The Seattle Orioles?  The Arizona Mariners?

The Diamondback turtle is native to Maryland so let’s go for it. Plus the D-Backs/any other MLB team not named the Royals are pretty much in better shape than the O’s, so again, let’s go for it.

This whole swapping business is how we wound up with Robert Irsay owning the Colts*.  I choose to tread carefully.

 

* -- Also, of less concern to me personally, it is how we wound up with Georgia Frontiere owning the Rams.

Well, that and a suspicious drowning “accident”.  

 

I think millionaires marrying ambitious social climbers is the more potent threat there.

Excellent points.


That said, the swap is what made the other things matter . . . as far as the Los Angeles/St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams are concerned.  If a butterfly flaps its wings . . .

Maybe the Mariners move to...Cheyenne. As in, Cheyenne, Wyoming. We'd be able to see this in all its glory.

I've always found the watermark on that logo distracting.

Don't be ridiculous. Everyone knows that Casper, Wyoming is where the party's at...not Cheyenne.
