If only Laura Miller had never been mayor.

Also MLB has a proximity rule that IIRC states more or less a new team would have to be at least 50 miles away from Rangers Stadium.

DFW could very easily support two teams tho.

I cant see it happening. I dont think this area can support two baseball teams.

It won't happen, but we could. 7 million people here. We're much bigger than the other 2 team regions were when they became two team places. We'll be bigger than Chicago in what? 15 years?...My dream would be for a NL stadium at Lovers and Greenville, where Old Town is now.

Gross population isn't the only issue. It's more how many sports fans live close enough and have enough money go to enough games etc. There's zero doubt two teams would work here if the Rangers were not in Arlington.

Back to population - DFW is more than triple the population of Kansas City.
