Was it a horrible mistake for the Giant's to move to San Francisco?

 

The recent FanPost about Selig saying it was a horrible mistake for the A's to move to Oakland  Here got me thinking.

Was it a bigger mistake for the Giant's to move to San Francisco?

They could have stayed in New York and had billion dollar TV contracts and maybe a hand -full of World Series Rings. Yes things are working out for them now, after 50+ years, but how many years of bad attendance, bad teams and shitty stadiums did they have to go through? Was it all worth it for them?

They had a decade before the A’s came to the bay. We almost Immediately showed them how to win Rings. We also stole some fans.

KC was no great place to have a franchise then, and it still sucks now, . We came from a low-revenue place, to a low-revenue place, and learned how to win. so the move for the A’s worked out

The Giant's left NEW YORK CITY to eventually share the Bay with the A’s. They came from the Biggest revenue place, to for most of there history, a lower-revenue place. And up till this year, learned how to lose.

alternate history: if the Giant's didn't move to the Bay in the late 50's, the A’s might have been the first. would they have picked San Francisco instead of Oakland?. Your San Francisco Athletics.

If the Giants had moved out of state back before ATnT Park, would San Francisco now be on the Table for the A’s to build a new stadium?

Oakland A's WS rings- 4 or about one per decade. Mistake moves to the Bay- 0 ?

SF Giant's WS rings-1 or two per century.  Mistake moves to the Bay-1 ?

Full disclosure: I need any scrap I can get right now to discount the Giant's success and elevate our failure's right now. If anyone made a mistake around here, I'm saying its them. I'm a hater, I admit it.  It helps ease the pain.
