During Wednesday’s edition of Cattles & Ramie with Nick Cattles Ramie Makhlouf, the guys were joined by The Athletic’s Senior MLB editor Melissa Lockard to share the latest updates in the Oakland Athletics’ potential move to Las Vegas, Nevada.
Plus: What will the A’s do next if this stadium deal in Las Vegas isn’t approved?
- Do the A’s face an uphill battle because of the Las Vegas funding issues?
- Oakland “doesn’t have votes” to push the stadium deal through legislation
- “This has been rushed, and the fact that it’s been obviously rushed has to make the politicians having to make these decisions feel icky.”
- If the A’s don’t get the votes, what is the next step for the franchise?
- “I would have to think at some point, the league gets tired of this. It’s making everybody look bad that is connected to Major League Baseball right now.”
- How does the rest of the MLB owner landscape view the A’s ownership group?
