The Oakland A’s are Preparing a Move to Vegas

Oakland A's could leave the city for Las Vegas.
Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

After agreeing to buy land for a new stadium in Las Vegas and Oakland mayor Sheng Thao ending negotiations with the MLB club, it seems that the Athletics’ tenure in Oakland could be coming to an end. Former baseball executive David Samson joins the podcast to explain what he thinks is going on with the A’s, and why a move to Las Vegas isn’t exactly a done deal.

Also, professional boxer Ryan Garcia, who has a marquee matchup Saturday night against Gervonta Davis, is on the podcast. Garcia gives a preview of the fight, and details how he wants to make an impact on the world with his status as a pro boxer.
