pie-in-the-sky feel to it. Where would they play in Brooklyn? It's one thing to award a franchise, it's another to build a stadium in NYC. Look at NYCFC in MLS - they have all the money in the world and they are still stuck playing at Yankee Stadium, which is far from ideal for soccer.
is not a reputable news source. Go to their website and look at all the ridiculous stuff they have. They are known for publishing propaganda and conspiracy theories. It is run by a failed Buffalo local political candidate. Seriously, if MLB had agreed "in principal" for two expansion teams in NY, do you think this little website would be the only one to know about it? The story only lists two unnamed "sources" for two small bits of info. One is a "Hochul" operative and the other is "long-time" Schumer staffer who "provides" a quote from Schumer that implies if this is apporved he would owe MLB something. Plus, the map of teams doesn't even include the Mets, White Sox.
Here's another ridiculous story:
"Governor Kathy Hochul is interested in appointing a civic commission of landscape architects, theologians, and ethicists to reimagine urban cemeteries and to make recommendations on how to repurpose some of New York City’s largest burial grounds for badly needed public park space."
A politician would have to be an idiot for ever talking about "repurposing" major cemeteries (removing bodies). And again, do you really think no other media source would have this?
This is the site that said a Philly mob boss was paid $300,000 to throw the election in PA for Biden.
And it has a story up now that says the governor wants to land Ryanair's North America hub on Long Island. Fine, except Ryanair isn't looking to expand to North America.
But for MLB to be in Rochester I would lose my beloved Red Wings (AAA) and MLB would fail miserably. Then I would have no baseball at all.
