Mount Davis Is An Insult And MLB Is Too Stupid To Realize Or Too Greedy To Care

Major League Baseball is putting out a new “stadium series” of NFTs which, as the title suggests, is a tribute to old and new ballparks in a new, expensive, and galactically more tedious way. But then there is this: One of the NFT’s is of the Oakland Coliseum (h/t David Zlotlow), which is bad enough but also includes the ridiculous and insulting (to A’s fans) phrase, “pays homage to RingCentral Coliseum’s Mt. Davis seating section.”

Friday roundup: A’s high-rises too damn tall, Raleigh stadium roof too damn bent, many baseball parks too damn flood-prone

First things first: If you’re one of FoS’s new Patreon subscribers and missed yesterday’s post about whether the Oakland A’s owners are seriously considering moving to Las Vegas because it didn’t show up in your email, go click there (or here) now to catch up on it. (The automatic email system skipping the day’s early post and only sending out the later one is a bug that I think I’ve developed a workaround for, but we’ll have to wait for the next two-post day to tell for sure.)

As Giants, A's swing for playoffs, stars slow to win endorsement deals

There was a debate in the San Francisco Giants' dugout during a game last month: Who's more recognizable in the city — Buster Posey or Steph Curry?. While the Golden State Warriors star has a bankable national brand, the consensus was the Giants' all-star catcher might have the edge locally, given the baseball team's long history in the city. Of course, given the venue for this discussion, the catcher might have had a built-in edge.
