Eric at Off Wing responds to my thoughts on using DC to extort subsidies. In it he includes the reader comments of Ken Houghton. It is some interesting stuff. If you want to know about the possibility of baseball in DC, Eric is the blogosphere’s leading expert, so check out his site for more info.
I agree with Eric that baseball in DC is unlikely. I have posted my own thoughts on why owners have steered away from DC for the past three decades. Eric has made an even stronger case why DC will not get the team. I do think that extortion for subsidies is a possibility, but I think the other factors making DC a poor baseball market play a larger role.
Keep up the good work Eric!
