Re: Which MLB cities would you live in.....
This is a fantastic thread, love it.
My top 3 choices would be:
1. Arlington (Warm weather. Great ownership. Great fanbase. Big market, but not tons of pressure to win as in New York or Boston. Count me in.
2. New York (Nothing like being regarded as a clutch player in this city. Clearly tons of pressure. But I think that pressure's worth it if you come through. Would be a great challenge, tons of money, and a lot of fun.)
3. Cincinnati (I'm serious here. Great baseball city. Competitive team. Obviously a great ownership group that takes care of its players. A young team with some legit stars and with some more on the horizon in the minor leagues.)
Top 3 I'd least like to live in:
1. Boston (Ownership is throwing everyone under the bus on their way out the door. Crabby and spoiled fanbase. No thanks.)
2. Miami (Apathetic fanbase. Crazy manager. Quite honestly, a terrible owner. Nothing about this team is appealing to me, and the city is overrated if you ask me.)
3. Oakland (Bad ballpark. Fans that don't show up. Team stuck in legal limbo on whether they can move. Never know if you're on the trading block or not. No thanks.)
Granted, I'm taking into account the team situations in these rankings. I have nothing against any of the cities in the bottom 3. (Except for Miami. No offense to any Miami lovers, but I'm truly underwhelmed with that city).
