LETTER: Tropicana site would be bad for the Oakland A’s
If the A’s move to Las Vegas, they should move where there is less traffic and stop trying to make the Strip look like California.

I have a real problem with the Oakland A’s moving to the Tropicana site (Thursday Review-Journal).
My first problem is traffic in that area is horrible already. The second issue is nostalgia. Some of the original buildings are still there from back in its heyday. If we get rid of it, what would be the point of Tropicana Avenue being named that any longer?
In addition, the Tropicana is a place where Howard Hughes took the strip away from the mafia.
We cannot continue to allow Las Vegas to get rid of all its history or we just become like Los Angeles, which actually is struggling to find older buildings to restore. If the A’s move to Las Vegas, they should move where there is less traffic and stop trying to make the Strip look like California.
