LETTER: A curveball from the Oakland A’s

The Oakland A’s baseball ownership has revealed their true team colors by first making a deal with Red Rock Casino group, then ditching them to strike a deal to use the Tropicana property. The ownership group will chase the best deal, throwing loyalty out the window.

When it comes to a fan base, winning and loyalty are two of the most important aspects of supporting a professional franchise. It would be the biggest mistake on the Strip if Las Vegas partners with the A’s ownership. This town deserves better. It will be worth the wait to be a part of baseball expansion. That model has worked for other sports.

Relocation of the worst baseball franchise is not something this town needs to pursue. No one wants this Oakland A’s ownership. Why should we?
