Rob Manfred said Tuesday that he still expects the Oakland Athletics to move to Las Vegas, calling the club's relocation plans "solid."

The commissioner did acknowledge things have not been particularly easy thus far though.

"I think Las Vegas is solid, I really do," Manfred said. "It was a little rough with the mayor, Clark County versus the city. But, you know, from my perspective, (Las Vegas major Carolyn Goodman) was the first person who ever talked to me about baseball in Las Vegas.

"I understand all politics are local, and the county is different than the city, but I think the governor and the politicians in general in Las Vegas remain committed to the deal. I think the deal is going to happen."

In addition to the financing and new stadium renderings, the Athletics also have to figure out where they'll play from 2025-27.
