Orioles are there because of historical reason. If they were an expansion franchise on the level of the Rays they'd have moved already.

In summary, Baltimore should not get another major league franchise.
Horsecrap....If the O's were as good as the Rays attendance would be right back up to the 3 million range. It's notable that, as bad as the O's have been, they outdrew the Rays this year, and on the night the pennant race was decided, there was a bigger, more boisterous crowd in Baltimore than in Tampa.

While that may be true, there are a metric ton of Sox fans in the Baltimore area and every time I've been to a O's/Sox game the crowd has been at least 50/50.

That being said, there are more than enough people in Baltimore to support a separate basketball team. Also, the cities may only be 40 miles apart, but that's a hell of a long drive during weekday, evening traffic. I'd be surprised if many people come down from Baltimore for Wizards games.

How did they manage to get the new hotel structure directly on top of the new arena, because of the limited space of the site to hold new convention space, the arena, and the hotel? Too bad there are no alternative sites for the new arena.

The green roof is intended to be just that...green. It won't be the first roof of its type in Baltimore, but will be by far the largest.

There's no certanty that this will be the actual design. This project is just getting off the ground...planning money is suppossed to be appropriated next year. They are looking 2016-18 before this is completed, if at all.

Regardless of NHL/NBA teams moving to Baltimore this arena still needs to be built. Baltimore still needs a place for concerts and events. And if they cant get NHL or NBA team they will definitely get at least a minor league hockey team or arena football team.

Why would Portland move? They have a great fan base and great attendance.

One step closer as a attached convention center expansion was deemed a necessary in the city through a study. Hopefully this thing will really get moving in about a year or so.

I think owners are afraid of competing with the DC teams. And let's face it, Baltimore is doing just fine without an NHL/NBA team. Sure, it gets overshadowed by DC most of the time, but it's a good large city with plenty of business, and in many ways behaves opposite of DC.

It's not somewhere like Oklahoma City where they want to be recognized as being up there with the 'big boys'. Baltimore knows what it is, and perhaps that's why the Ravens' image has resonated so well with the city. (I'm avoiding the issue of the Colts here, yes the football fanbase has always been great.)

Correct me if I'm wrong.

As does DC with Baltimore. There is nothing more frustrating than DC coming up when it comes to our sports. They are two completely different cities with different fans. If DC wasn't so close we would probably have at least 3 pro teams...bullets probably never would have left. The only reason they really left anyway becaus Pollin was from DC and wanted them there.

The Ravens have never had an unsold ticket and the O's had the best attendance in baseball before their 14 year tailspin.

I don't know if this arena will bring a team, but it will undoubtedly change the sports landscape of Baltimore. Once again UMD will play games in bmore and feel like a part of the city again. I really hope the DC United move here, I think MLS would be the perfect 3rd sport for now.

Toronto? The Raptors? They play in the fourth largest market in the NBA, and have drawn very well in their entire history.
