What Happens in Vegas . . . is Really the Same Thing That Happens Everywhere Else

Every time a team has trouble with attendance or their stadium, someone mentions Las Vegas as a potential new home. Well, Las Vegas isn't any different than any other city when it comes to this stuff:
Developers considering bids to redevelop the site of Cashman Field in Las Vegas have been told by the city that all proposals must include plans to build a new baseball stadium on the site or nearby. The proposals could have implications for the future of professional baseball in Las Vegas, which would likely be in danger if a new stadium is not built . . .

. . . Don Logan, president and general manager of the 51s, said the team hopes to "hang on" in Las Vegas until it can get a new stadium.
Though it may seem that way sometimes, they really don't print money in Sin City.

Vegas has sunk to the bottom of the AAA pecking order. That's how they ended up with the Jays. Nobody wanted the Jays because they have a long history of fielding shit AAA teams and no big league club wanted their AAA in Vegas because the facility is inferior ( by todays standards, a lot of great minor league parks have been constructed in this era ).
