First of all, baseball is BACK...

This has been the most watchable season of baseball since Mark and Sammy were injecting themselves with horse testosterone.

The games go fast. There's more action, more stolen bases, and less pick-off attempts to first base.

Baseball is in a great spot right now and the politicians up on Capitol Hill need to get the memo.

Get baseball to Salt Lake City or you're all gonna get impeached.

A recent poll showed that 47% of Utahns are for using tax money to fund a new stadium and 50% oppose the idea. (Hinckley Institute of Politics poll)

The 50% who oppose the idea are probably commies.

Democrats were 51% in favor and Republicans were 48% (golf clap).

This is America. If you have chance to become a Major League city, you jump at it.

Let's do a thought experiment.

I'm going to write a city name and you're going to say the first thing that comes to mind.


(You said Cubs)


(You said Braves)


(You said methamphetamines)

Do we want Salt Lake to be a dinky little city without an MLB team like Riverside, CA or Richmond, VA or Hartford, CT?

Nobody knows anything about those loser cities. They have no personality!

Baseball will bring more color and fun to Salt Lake and that's what life is all about.

Anybody can save money! Or be responsible with public funds. But this is America.

Baseball is our sport. Let it be played in beautiful Salt Lake City.
