I'm interested to know what you are trying to say?

I'm questioning his opinion of Mahomes' place in the NFL, any attention to NFL coverage would indicate, in my opinion, he's clearly viewed as a top 5 player, and future (now) superstar. TLDR, I agree with your contentions.

Tampa will move first.

Actually, I think there’s a strong possibility that Oakland will move, although they would stay within their geographical area I think

Moving within the Bay Area to an actual baseball stadium with decent access and transportation options would seem to be a great option.  But then there's territorial rights and the fact that the Giants appear to believe that San Jose belongs to them for all eternity.  

Maybe they can work out a MASN deal where the A's get 75% of the Giants' TV revenues forever.  Or I guess it would be the other way around.

Hard to believe that 25 years ago most of the league played in multipurpose football arenas.

Yeah MLB has really gotten a lot of free stadiums from the tax payers.  Memorial stadium wasn’t so bad.

Memorial Stadium had a lot of good memories, for the Orioles and me, but it was basically a big concrete horseshoe that was clearly designed with football in mind as much as baseball.  More than once I had seats with huge concrete pillars obstructing the view, and/or overhanging upper deck that made flyballs disappear.  The amenities were straight out of 1950.  But luckily I was a kid most of the time I went there so it was great.  I didn't know anything different; there wasn't anything much different in that era.

I would have liked to have seen it in 1950s configuration when the LC-CF-RC "fence" was a hedge 450-some feet away.

I disliked the old location, getting to it was a nightmare, parking was absolutely dreadful, dont plan on leaving early, or even when the game is over, if the people around you, decided to hang out elsewhere.

To me OPACY was simple, easy to get to, easy parking, and love the stadium

    • Here's a little sidies gift! Bob Dylan Blood On The Tracks Full Album. Tragically sad record. EVERY song is about how bad love can go... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUmrHb1IgTQ  
    • On a mind tangent from ^^^that^^^ I thought of this. (don't ask...) I have a copy of Woodstock, WHOLE 3 hours, I got free from youboob. Years ago. I was watching this song especially. This video just has a picture, but in the movie you can see Richie playing... weirdly. He wraps his thumb way up over the top of the neck, playing 2 or 3 strings with it in a straight bridge. So I knew he had some funky tuning on the guitar. There's one point where he breaks a string onstage and fixes it. When he gets done you can see and hear him tuning it. So I tuned my guit like that and this song just fell into my lap! I knew how to play it before I played a note. Just immediately started playing this!    
    • Heard of piece of music in a silly video that reminded me of this. Years ago I bought a mandolin from a friend of my dad's, to try to learn to play this. Then I found out how a mandolin is tuned... COMPLETELY different from a guitar. Chords, scale are all COMPLETELY different. Would have been like starting from scratch to learn. I didn't have the energy to do it, not for one song anyways...  
    • I remember it now, especially with the video clip that SteveA provided.  I remember watching replay after replay and never feeling sure about whether it had hit the pole or not. There was a play this past season where Santander hit one that barely grazed the right field foul pole at Philadelphia.  The first base ump initially called it foul, but with no fans in the stands, you could hear a metallic sound as the ball touched the pole, and Ben McDonald immediately said "What'd that hit?"  The play was reviewed and eventually ruled to be a home run.  I'm not sure whether the replay officials in New York made their ruling because they had access to audio and could hear the ball hit the pole, or because they were able to detect a deflection in the ball's path. Too bad there were 50,000 fans yelling at Yankee Stadium in 2012 and nobody could hear whether McLouth's ball hit the pole.
    • These little tidbits are nice, but Blood has been giving company line on guys so far in most interviews. Take the glowing reports with a grain of salt. Not saying these guys aren't looking good, but let's not get too excited based off these comments. Saying that, I've heard similar things about Henderson and Westburg. Big, athletic players that bring multiple tools to the field.
    • Martin is probably faster than Hays.  I think he is close to Mullins.  He broke his wrist in ST 2.0. So I don't know if he counts or not.
    • Peralta's walk rate finally came down to respectable levels last year and he was throwing more quality strikes, but his performance when promoted to Frederick was disappointing. I don't see him being taken in the Rule 5 draft. He's still way too raw.
