What about Gibson in 1968?

I just think it would go well and the time is about right (say within 5 years). I actually wouldn’t be stunned if the A’s did it

Yeah I don’t think we are anywhere near a full time team there. Maybe a random series or 3 moved there during the year or like doing this Japan Series thing there in the offseason, but I don’t think we are close to a full time team working there.

Setting aside everything else, Mexico City is 2000 feet higher in elevation than Denver. It would barely be the same sport.

Mexico City is awesome but they don’t need a MLB team at the moment.
