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.”
