It was disappointing to read Sam Gordon’s column arguing the A’s should remain in Oakland (March 22 Review-Journal). He offered only sentimental reasons.
Oakland no longer deserves a major league team. Although there are multiple reasons, the fact remains their attendance is the lowest in the majors. Oakland’s population has been declining. The Bay Area already has a big league team, even if the few remaining Oakland fans dislike the Giants.
On the other hand, Las Vegas needs and deserves a team. Many believe the chance of us getting an expansion team are low. It’s surprising that a Las Vegas journalist would advocate a position that is clearly detrimental to Las Vegas sports.
