My theory is that Paulson's group is selling the Portland Beavers PCL team to help pay for the MLS Portland team one and two his group has doubts about the Portland market as both a MLS and PCL market at the same time of year. There nothing wrong with what Paulson's group did they own the teams it is there choice which is fine. My problem is lets not pull the wool over Portland fans and the city of Portland's eyes.
I don't think Portland gets triple-a PCL baseball back in that market for a long time in my opinion Portland blew it. If Paulson's group wanted MLS soccer so bad let him pay for the soccer stadium converson of PGE Park. My opinion is that the market isn't big enough sports interest wise for two teams. I wouldn't call Portland a great sports market. It is big population wise no doubt but the Portland market has lost alot of sports teams over the years one and two losing baseball like they are wouldn't go over in a great sports market in my opinion. I wouldn't get my hopes up if I was Portland about the prospects of triple-a baseball again anytime soon. I believe Portland will get baseball back but only single-a baseball in the Northwest League we will see. Let's Go Buffalo
