Can you imagine what it would be like to play baseball in front of an empty stadium? You’ve seen it when the Phillies play Atlanta, Washington and Florida. It stinks, right?
Just imagine how the Oakland Athletics must feel these days. A record hovering around .500, playing in front of an average of just over 17,000 fans, second worst in the league. They’ve become the white elephants the legendary John McGraw told Connie Mack they’d be and it ain’t pretty. Oakland can’t keep them and San Jose’s not sure they want them, so what happens next?
We propose they move back home to Philadelphia. Why? You know how Roy Oswalt came to the Phillies because Brad Lidge assured him he’d love it here, because the fans are the best? We want to show America just how great a sports town Philadelphia is by bringing the Athletics back to their rightful home here in the City of Brotherly Love.
