I wish we could support a baseball team.

Parking would be a nightmare with this concept example

I love the tailgate atmosphere for football at Carter Finley (which won't be changing), but State basketball doesn't really have a ton of tailgating due to the weather during most of the season (although that wouldn't be a problem this year) and the Hurricanes normally aren't good enough to play in the months when tailgating is even an option.

I really like the PNC (plus it's getting renovated in the next year or two anyway), but a downtown arena would be a lot of fun aside from the obvious parking issues. I too, would love it if Raleigh could support a baseball team.

So hypothetically, if we were to get a baseball team - which team is most likely to leave their current city? The A's? Also, could we even get one based on the rule of having MLB teams a certain geographical distance from Minor League teams (i.e. the Bulls)?

I think Raleigh could potentially support a team with all of the development and influx of people coming in, especially from the North. It's a lot of seats to fill for a lot of games but I think we could pull it off.

Don't urban arenas create huge dead zones when games aren't going on?

Big stadiums, yes, arenas not necessarily if they are designed right, but most are not. See Verizon Center in DC as an example of how it can be done right (ground floor retail spaces on all sides of the building).

the Nationals have a minor league team in Woodbridge (Potomac Nationals), which is almost exactly the same distance it would be for the Bulls and downtown Raleigh (~21 mi)

Was it any good? Those that ate there, what would you equate it to?

Yeah Lillys is definitely better, that was the closest comparison I could think of, in my opinion it's in that ballpark.

Capital Creations is the best normal style pizza in this part of Raleigh though

I didn’t like it at all and I thought the braided crust was gimmicky. Still sad to see a place close after so long in business
