MLB commissioner Rob Manfred may have to re-attach the countless heads he blew up following an interview with reporters this week.
Manfred addressed the question of having a team in Las Vegas. Considering baseball’s historic fight against gambling, many were surprised to hear he would be open to having a team in sin city — a first for a baseball commish.
“Las Vegas could be a viable market for us,” Manfred said during his Cactus League news conference in Phoenix. “… I don’t think that the presence of legalized gambling in Las Vegas should necessarily disqualify that market as a potential major league city.”
