Mexico!!

The marketing would be easy ...

"XX" Park ...

And they would create a cult following in no time at all.
I bet alot of the latin stars would love to play there too.
The just need to figure out the economics of it all.

I just hope that it is not DC. They have been terrible in supporting their pro sports teams and they have the Os just down the highway.

I voted Las Vegas. MLB needs a little shake up - things are much too sedate. VEgas is an exciting and fun place. The Vegas Gamblers? The Vegas Goodfellas? the possibilities are endless.

I voted Vegas. It would give me yet another reason to go there. :-D

I think Portland would be a good fit. Could always use another team on the West Coast. I went to Montreal last year to see the Expos....Olympic Stadium was truly the worst ballpark I have ever seen....

There was also some talks about moving the team to Nashville, but the group that wanted to move the team there wanted the city to pick up the entire cost of building a park. City officials rejected- good for them.

I'd like to see them move to Portland. It'd be great to have another team on the West Coast, the move would follow population trends, and Portland has at least a partial stadium deal ready to go. Now they just need an owner ...

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I heard this idea that if they move to Las Vegas, the stadium should offer free admission, and make money off slot machines that will be placed around the stadium.
