San Jose has a greater population than both Oakland or San Francisco. In terms of MLB territorial rights, San Jose belongs to the Giants. That issue must be resolved. In addition:New site, new renderings at any rate, looks to be in town somewhere which makes more sense to me, maybe San Jose can support a team financially if they can get the territorial rights.
32 k is more than enough for a small market team. For example, the Pittsburgh Pirates have been getting about 20,000 people per game for the last few years yet made have made a very healthy profit in those years, taking in a $15 million in profit in 2007, $14 million in 2008 and $5 million in 2009.Agreed, 32k seems too small for a major league franchise.
