Anytime a poll is released asking which American city deserves a baseball team, there are three that always appear. Las Vegas—which will never happen because of the physical proximity to gambling—and Charlotte are two. But we all know that the third, Nashville, is the best suited.
Why, you ask? Two reasons.
First, I'm from Nashville. It's a great city. The music, the weather, the diversity, the day/afternoon/night life. It's awesome. Yes, I'm biased.
Second, the city was born for baseball. Spring afternoons yield temperatures in the mid-70s, and the sun stays out late in the central timezone. A stadium south of Broadway on First Avenue would be an exquisite launching point for a night on the town.
But I'm not here to convince you that Nashville could support a pro team. I'm here to tell you what the eight best nicknames would be. Enjoy yourself.
