      Charlotte is unlikely
      Already has NFL, NBA, MLS, and Raleigh has NHL. College sports are also very popular, with UNC, Duke, NC State, Clemson, South Carolina not far away.

      Memphis is moronic for obvious reasons.

      Nashville , SLC, Sacramento seem like good options. I'm assuming the A's dumb plan to move to Vegas will fall through and they'll change to SLC or Sacramento, then you can put an expansion team in the other

        the AAA team there always has good attendance, and bananaball lottery tickets instantly sold out. Plenty of fan support too since they support a lower div soccer team and the wort NBA team in history. Raley field is really comfy too

        all depends on if the giants are willing to relocate the rivercats elsewhere though, and what ultimately happens to the A's. NorCal covers a huge expanse of land outside the bay area, so it doesnt make sense to condense the whole half of the state into the coast

      LA's metro area is 18M people and San Diego isn't even part of it. Leaving it to one team is both a bad idea for competitive balance (letting one team take all that money) and a bad idea from general interest (expecting 18M people to buy tickets to a stadium of 56k seats).

      There are not as many teams in New York so, no, it's not because of that.

      Philly is roughly as close to NY as SD is to LA. NY used to have 3 teams (Yankees, Giants and Dodgers) but then the Giants and Dodgers went to California and they only replaced them with one team.

    ever since I heard the weird Montreal/tampa joint team thing I've liked the idea but just with two cities that make sense like Charlotte and Raleigh, Nashville and Memphis, Montreal and Quebec, Calgary and Edmonton, Mexico city and Monterrey etc. even playing half the games at each is 40 games a year, which is as many as NBA or NHL. problem of course is needing two stadiums, at least one of them can be like a 20k seater and cost probably less than half the usual price at least.
    anyway, this ain't happening but at least I'd like to see teams do what NPB teams do abd play a series or two each year at the home of some nearby or affiliate minor league team facilities, to reach a wider audience.

    to answer OP, my two cities of choice would be Salt Lake City and Vancouver. SLC is fast growing, beautiful location, not really in the territory of any other team, and they seem eager for a team which is good. Rockies can have a high altitude friend.
    Vancouver because Seattle could use a neighbor and Portland sucks and doesn't seem to care about baseball at all, can barely minor league teams. Canada could probably handle another team but Montreal sucks and failed support their team when they had it, also they're french.
    I'd pick Calgary if it were a bit bigger, Alberta seems most American like, and it's the wealthiest province I believe.

          Obviously nothing is truly final until they're playing games in Vegas but everything in the process so far has been going as expected.
          >The relocation effort follows years of failed attempts to replace Oakland Coliseum with a more modern stadium in the Bay Area. In 2023, the team announced it was planning to build a new ballpark in the Las Vegas Valley, causing negotiations over the proposed Oakland Ballpark at Howard Terminal to collapse. Initially, the team's agreement to build a new ballpark in Las Vegas started at the Wild Wild West Gambling Hall & Hotel but later shifted to the Tropicana Las Vegas with a 1,500 room hotel and casino. On June 15, Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo signed an MLB stadium funding bill worth $380 million, known as SB1, into law. Not long afterward, the Athletics announced they would begin the relocation process to Las Vegas when the bill was signed. By June 21, the Athletics had begun the relocation process with MLB by drafting a relocation application. The application was submitted to MLB by August 23. The move was unanimously approved by MLB ownership on November 16, 2023, during the owners meeting in Arlington, Texas. In January 2024, Bally's announced that the Tropicana Las Vegas would officially close on April 2 and be subsequently demolished to make way for the new ballpark by 2025.
          Unless Oakland or some other entity in the Bay Area suddenly comes up with a more attractive package than what Vegas is offering, there's little reason to think the team is going to stay.

            you're assuming all of this goes smoothly

            I reckon even if they succeed, they end up with terrible attendance and ticket revenue, and low RSN subscriptions and therefore not much media revenue.
            A lot of MLB ticket revenue is relying on corporations to purchase tickets. Why the frick would they do this in Vegas when you have limitless entertainment options? They're basically banking on tourist buying tickets, which works for the Raiders but the Raiders only play 8-9 home games a year.

            I reckon if they do actually move to Vegas, they move out eventually

            Sports leagues make much of their income off of having taxpayers subsidize their stadiums and arenas. They make an example of cities that don't pony up enough cash quickly so other cites will cower in fear and do as they're told each.

            This is nothing new, pro teams are premium products to cities and can command new facilities almost at will. All the multipurpose stadiums were a municipal attempt to save money with a 2 for 1 deal and those were built in the 60s. The only problem I really have is now stadiums are being torn down that weren't even paid off by the public yet. The average lifespan for pro facilities keeps shrinking and that needs to stop.

            In short pro sports are luxuries and the supply is limited, so it's unrealistic for a city not to expect to pay the premium for a team.

            If cities want a team, they should just purchase a team. They were quite inexpensive until the stadium rape of taxpayers, enabled by fricktards like you, gave them skyrocketing value.

            The city doesn't want to purchase a team and they're probably not allowed to by law or league rules anyway (Green Bay is grandfathered - you'll never see another municipally owned NFL team for this reason). And on the other hand the team owners need facilities. And given the scarcity of the good, it seems natural that cities would offer competitive deals for these teams.

            Oakland already approved almost twice as much money for a project that would have given the real prize among new MLB ballparks of surrounding development. Then Fisher announced "parallel paths" negotiations with Vegas that prompted Oakland decided to shut the door with theirs. Now he is left with 9 acres with no extra real estate, no good public transportation options, a place locals avoid like the plague, and VERY muddy finances for his side of the contribution is supposed to be. He's supposed to put up over a billion dollars, apparently by selling shares in the team which is the definition of putting the cart before the horse plus would be taxed 20% as per MLB's conditions to approve the relocation. And the word among Vegas insiders is that many of the power brokers do not find them to be a serious organization worth pitching in for. Interest rates will stay elevated for the time being so borrowing $200 million doesn't just happen.

            And that's just Fisher's side of things. Investors would only be interested in what the full stadium+Bally's next thing would look like. And Bally's might not have money on THEIR side of things beyond tearing down the Tropicana. That old creaky tower is likely full of asbestos which makes demolition a slow and expensive process. They are scrambling to find $800 million for their Chicago casino project which they are legally obliged to put up while already over $3.5 billion in debt and stocks in a landslide over the last year. It's likely they can't afford building something new over the Tropicana, after which they could sell their lease on the land to someone else that has actual money and a vision that doesn't sharing land with a ballpark for a rinky-dink organization.

          Sports leagues make much of their income off of having taxpayers subsidize their stadiums and arenas. They make an example of cities that don't pony up enough cash quickly so other cites will cower in fear and do as they're told each.

            This is nothing new, pro teams are premium products to cities and can command new facilities almost at will. All the multipurpose stadiums were a municipal attempt to save money with a 2 for 1 deal and those were built in the 60s. The only problem I really have is now stadiums are being torn down that weren't even paid off by the public yet. The average lifespan for pro facilities keeps shrinking and that needs to stop.

            In short pro sports are luxuries and the supply is limited, so it's unrealistic for a city not to expect to pay the premium for a team.

            This is a perfect argument against giving them a monopoly

            Municipal bonds are tax free. The reason for this was to encourage investors to buy the bonds so cities would have an easier and less costly way of raising funds to build streets, sidewalks, water systems and that sort of basic infrastructure than they would if those bonds were taxable like most other bonds are. Instead they mostly use them to build stadiums. In effect, the federal government is subsidizing these sports leagues through tax policy, which means even if you live in Bumblefrick, Idaho, every professional sports team is picking your pockets a bit. If the federal government simply changed the tax code to tax municipal bonds used to build sports facilities, much of the financial advantage of owning a team would go away. Teams would have to use more of their own money for building stadiums, which means they'd be far less likely to shop around to whatever city has the dumbest politicians (keep in mind, these local rubes are driving up the federal debt due to tax advantages of muni bonds).

    Memphis is never going to get a team due to the fact that its a complete shithole.

    Nashville can get a tourist crowd just like Vegas, but its a significantly larger media market with other media markets around it (rather than being located in the middle of the desert) in a region that is underrepresented in the MLB.

      Though not evident in this photo, the Salt Lake Bees minor league baseball team pulls in about 6000 per game, which is good for the minors. Utah teams do get a ratings boost from being of interest to Mormons outside of Utah.

          Las Vegas gets tourists and that's what sports teams are envisioning
          Where Boomers had season tickets and box offices, Millennials had ticket packages and vouchers, Zoomers have the event economy. They'll probably make deals with hotels so that fans can get tickets with hotel purchase.
          All Las Vegas is is a place for people go. Nowadays people want more than slots and Sinatra.

            Vegas is a place people go for things that would be both exciting and unique, of which this would be neither. There’s no sense of exclusivity from football's limited schedule, there will be no sustained on-field (ice?) success or theatrics like with the Golden Knights. The Magic get less than 15% of tickets sold to travelers in a city that attracts even more people annually than Vegas. In their own projections, the A’s promised lawmakers they’d get 30%.

            I don't think a Vegas MLB team will be successful, but I think the comparison to the Magic is unfair.

            Las Vegas tourists go to the strip and the baseball stadium would be located reasonably nearby. Magic's arena is pretty far away from all the resorts Orlando tourists stay at.
            And Las Vegas is adult tourism, Orlando is family tourism.

            I do think NBA would do very well in Las Vegas, but MLB is the bad move. MLB teams need a strong local fanbase to be successful, and its not good for them to be in such a crowded entertainment environment

            this works for the Raiders who play 8 home games

            MLB teams play 81 home games. They make money selling tickets to corporations and selling media rights to RSNs. Vegas isn't good for either of those things, and there's lots of entertainment options available.
