Baseball in DC

Baseball is back in DC. Maybe. They must first get the site worked out. I'm truly torn on this issue. I love baseball, NL ball especially. I own a home an earshot away from RFK stadium where the "Nationals" will play for a few years. The question is will this be good for DC? Will baseball be good for DC in N.E. or S.W.? Can the city, afford a team? Is this a sacrifice or a benefit? Economists, public policy makers, urban planners I'm sure are all over this and we can find a gantlet of conflicting positions. But if you’re a member of the working class in DC will a new team and stadium be a benefit to you?
