The only way I see MLB working in Sacramento is if the A's end up moving there.

It's only ~90 miles from Oakland, and the market overlaps with the current A's fanbase in Contra Costa and Solano counties.

The only way MLB comes to Sacramento is if the owners want to foot the bill entirely for a stadium. The city won't spend more on a baseball stadium and Raley Field is not really modifiable. They'd have to blow it up and start over the way it was built.

Its definitely messed up the way the fans have been jerked around over this. Unfortunately the problem for a city the size of Sacramento is that the NBA's business model is built around big markets and superstars - small market, unfashionable franchises seem perpetually destined for irrelevance. The fact that the league are desperate for a presence in Seattle again (seemingly at Sacramento's expense) is proof of this. Thats before we even begin to talk about the officiating in the 2002 Western Conference Finals.................

Sacramento city council to have "symbolic" vote to support Kings staying in city and support of new arena. Meanwhile, mayor to head to NBA governor meetings to appeal to owners.

Stern being very coy (why would he not be) about the BOG's decision between Sacramento and Seattle

http://www.news10.net/news/article/2...-will-be-tough

According to the article, a local group has until March 15 for an official counter offer. If that date comes and goes with no offer, then the decision will not be too difficult.

Wolff wants to keep the team in the bay area and there is no baseball stadium suitable for a major league team in Sacramento.

Just found this. A group is looking to raise $650 million in private funds to build a baseball stadium in Sacramento to lure the A's there.

http://www.sacramentobaseball.biz/

That would be amazing if they could pull that off, even if it only has a 0.0000000000000001% chance of happening.

They want private citizens and companies to essentially 'pledge' to buy seats/suites etc. I agree with your percentage chance of this happening.
