  1. This is a perfect example of the admonition when you have a community asset, e.g. PawSox, you do all in your power to keep it because to replace it involves cost and a great deal of uncertainty. Good luck to the Commerce Dept, in this quest, but keep in mind the experience of the City of Providence when it tried to sell the Civic Center, it put out a RFP and got NO responses and eventually the State purchased the facility.

    We had a Triple A franchise, the highest minor level level there is and thought so little about it, we lost it. There is nothing out there that will be better than what we had. Pouring money into an outmoded stadium in a unattractive neighborhood is not a formula for a wise investment or success.
