Bearing in mind that this is still in the territory of "leaked before actually announced", and as much as they're now closer to San Jose than they are to Oakland (at least both in my memory and on the map, pending a dictatorial ruling), but the bottom line simply seems to be that this was the best real estate deal they could grind out.

But in the long term it could work well for them if it means they can draw more of the San Jose populous than they are already, plus the fact that it'll be a shiny new balpark, which usually draws well the first few seasons.

Sounds like a good deal. Every team needs a new ballpark!

I, a Yankee fan, and all my Red Sox counterparts would disagree.

Even though Fenway is a filthy sewer.

The Yankees are getting a new Yankee Stadium though. As much as I hate to, I'll give the Yankees credit, they're ponying up $800 million for the project.

Well, the sarcasm I intended didn't show too well.

Although Oakland is a dump, so people might want to get into a new park sooner than later.

And, as a Yankees fan, I too lament the move to a new park.

He may be "only" 34, but if you are a Reds Fan, wouldnt you rather free up his Bajillion dollars for some other talent? If not, then go ahead and pay a guy more than most of the rest of the team combined, to play half the games.
