I'm actually not suprised. Florida isn't exactly a pro baseball State

That's what I was thinking. I couldn't imagine support in Vegas would be more than Miami. They just need to contract some teams IMO rather than keep trying to move them trying to find somewhere they will take root. :-?

The Las Vegas Marlins would certainly rank right up there with the Utah Jazz in the list of inappropriate nicknames...

lol ...

I can't see a team surviving in Las Vegas ..
It was reported a while a go that since Las Vegas is a 24 hour city, at any given time 1/3 of the population is asleep and the other 3rd is at work. ..

Plus, MLB would require that the Casinos not take any action on Marlins games, which I can't see them doing.

2 teams won't survive in Florida. We see baseball (cheaper) and in beautiful weather all March for spring training, why go in the scolding heat when there are better things to do in it??

I didn't think the D'rays would last this long here.
