Is Angels owner Arte Moreno just playing Long Beach for leverage or what? | Field of Schemes

So the question now becomes: Did Angels execs finally start returning Long Beach’s phone calls because they were seriously interested in moving there, or because they were seriously interested in Anaheim officials thinking they were seriously interested in moving there? In other words, is this a genuine possibility, or just a savvy negotiator trying to create leverage?

Kansas City should talk about a downtown baseball stadium | The Kansas City Star

The whole editorial is pretty funny.

How close is this to the actual conversation?

Schulte: Hey, Mr. Glass. Do you have a problem with us handing over millions of taxpayer dollars to you?

Glass: How much can you give us? Give us some options.

Here’s the latest on the prospects for a downtown baseball stadium: Royals owner David Glass hasn’t ruled it out.

City Manager Troy Schulte said his conversations with Glass associates have left the door open to that possibility.

“He (Glass) is saying, `Give us some options,’” Schulte said. “He has not said no.”

Mets, St. Lucie County reportedly near agreement for stadium renovations

The Mets and St. Lucie (Florida) County are reportedly nearing an agreement to renovate First Data Field, where the Mets spend spring training, and keep the team there until 2042, according to the TC Palm’s Keona Gardner.

Amid a report last week that indicated the Mets could have “blown up” their stadium renovation deal, the two sides will bring forth a contract to county commissioners on Tuesday that outlines the renovation project, according to Gardner.

The project would cost $57 million, and the Mets will contribute $2 million, according to county documents obtained by Gardner.

Your periodic reminder that the stadium shakedown game extends to spring-training parks as well.
