Not just that but they'd hold on to their Oakland fans and grab the San Jose market in effect giving them 3X the potential fan base of the Giants. That's before we even factor in the Santa Cruz area which is only 30 minutes away from San Jose.
I'd be for it because it would make it easier to go to games. I'm looking forward to the 9ers moving down here. Might catch a game from time to time.
