While the city of Portland does not have an MLB team, plans are moving forward for an MLB stadium.
The Portland Diamond Project announced on Thursday that it had signed an agreement with the Port of Portland to develop the area and build a stadium.

Obviously, the natural question becomes, who would play there?
There are options. Until the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays fix their current stadium situations, both will be possible targets for any city looking to add a MLB team. Both have had discussions about getting new stadiums. But as of yet, nothing has gone beyond preliminary planning.
