What city would it be and would you do anything cool to the stadium?

I think I would put it in Sacramento, we need a Major League team.

I'd put it in Las Vegas. It would also have a hotel and a casino in the complex.

I would put it in Buffalo.

Indeed we do have the Bisons, one of the most successful minor league teams of the past decade. Residents hear yearn for baseball, and we almost got a major league grant in 1993 (******* Florida). Dunn Tire sells out a lot and the Bisons merchandise is featured in some sports stores. Buffalo would most definitely be ideal for the bigs.

Dont get me wrong I love the River Cats who have been quite successful over the years but I think its time for a Major League team.

I would move the team to Pittsburgh so the city could have a real MLB franchise.

Put one in Dallas for sure. In the Downtown area, probably an indoor stadium ala Reliant Stadium.

More then enough reason to have another MLB team.

...and a MLB team will never make its way to New Orleans. Heck, they almost lost their NFL team.

Of course I'd take my team the Mets. If it were an expansion franchise, I'd put them in Brooklyn.

ha, but who would want another MLB team. It isn't like the rangers sell out every home game. What we really need is more football.

I'd move it here to Ottawa, but be really rich and buy all the talent so we'd win and the entire city would cheer for us because of that. But if we lost, we wouldn't sell 2000 a game.

That was the thing with Montreal

Expos win = All the city was happy... Expos lost = Nobody at their match.

A new franchise at Montreal with a new stadium for me

I would put my team in Tennessee or Virginia I think.

I'd place a franchise in Charlotte, North Carolina. Keeping it in an eastern market would be critical and they've had successful college baseball but not professional.

Same place id put a football team... Virginia Beach, part of the reason they didnt get the expos was traffic, so i'd stick in the outskirts of town

Denver, it would be the biggest stadium in the league, have luxury boxes ground level but partway underground around the park, in the outfield i would have a waterfall in left and right n in center would be a little pool with THE WORLD IS YOURS statue in it and sculptures of angels or somn

i would wait till the preds left town, and build a stadium on the river in downtown nashville.

Once the Sounds leave too, cause the city won't build them a new stadium. Right on the River across from LP Field with a splash zone.

I would have never moved the Tigers out of Tiger Stadium, I would have renovated it by making more seating. I would also build a miniature hall of fame in the stadium looking back at all the great tigers and the greats who have played in the stadium. It is a damn shame that they are just letting Tiger Stadium sit there and rot away. I'm only 19 years old but I still remember going to games when I was very young and looking at the same outfield that Ty Cobb and Al Kaline used to own.

...and then massacre Peter Angelos before he leaves town.
