A recent analysis in Bleacher Report on Desme is down on him, and says he won't be anything but Jack Cust with speed. Not saying he's going to be that... But wouldn't Jack Cust plus serviceable center field plus stolen bases be a championship caliber player?
Finally somebody mentions basic physics. That whole standard dev. Exercise was a ludicrous waste of time. The most significant factors altering velocity change between hand and plate (outside of measuring error) would be 1. How far forward a pitchers release point was and 2. Air resistance from changes in altitude, humidity and wind.
I\'m sure Neil can tell you that for baseball, it\'s all about population. Even the \'holy grail\' of San Jose has fewer people in the immediate area than Oakland does (even including all of San Mateo county, which is Giants fan central). Beyond that, the only \'better\' options aren\'t really any good at all:
1. New Jersey (NY teams won\'t have it)
2. Mexico City (much higher altitude than even Coors)
3. Monterrey, Mexico (not a lot of money there)
The A\'s are best in Oakland, where BART is their lifeblood. Even Fremont was stupid, because so many A\'s fans come from Contra Costa County. Jack London Square makes the most sense, short of Alameda or Treasure Island if they are incorporated stops in the \'second bore\' train tube under the bay.
