Oakland Athletics Wheel of Relocation

Post any news whenever it comes about the Oakland Athletics possible relocation. Bump this thread if new news arrives later on.

There is no news about the A's possible relocation because no one is actually talking about the A's relocating. Selig made an off the cuff comment that the press then ran in a thousand different directions with and sensationalized the hell out of. End of story. The A's aren't moving anywhere outside their current Bay Area home, have no interest in doing so, and MLB has not approved any such move. End of story.

The A's may not leave the Bay Area, but they are extremely interested in moving to San Jose. The Giants are still opposing it, but it's far from over. I think Bud is trying to keep it under wraps as much as possible for now.

Unless Oakland somehow comes up with a stadium, I think it's either lawsuit or possibly contraction. Unlike the NFL and LA, MLB has no markets to use to black male anyone. Portland A's? Charlotte A's? Montreal A's? I don't think so.

Picturing this made me laugh.

That pretty much is it, but I will bet you anything this topic will be at three pages by Tuesday anyway.

I was with a girl who had been black maled before. God was she disappointed when she saw what I was working with.

1- Earlier this month, the CEO of Oakland-based Clorox (Oakland's only Fortune 500 company), Don Knauss, was with city representatives to address Athletics' ownership at a press conference to support keeping the team in Oakland.

2- While Lew Wolff is the face/mouth of team ownership, he is NOT the wallet.

The majority owner of the team is actually John Fisher, who inherited his fortune from his late father, Donald Fisher- founder of The Gap.

If the Warriors are leaving, could they do this?

1. When the Warriors move out, tear down Oracle and build a new baseball park in its place.

2. Then tear down the circular part of the Coliseum and rebuild the other half like a football stadium for the Raiders. Raiders could play at Candlestick or Santa Clara for a year or two.

Then they'd have a Coliseum sports complex like the one in Kansas City, for the price of 1 1/2 stadia.

Edit: I usually am really careful with spelling!

Problem is money. Who would pay for it? Oakland has less than nothing to contribute and the A's ownership and MLB have shown no interest in privately building on the current Coliseum Complex site. They want to be in a downtown, namely San Jose's.

^^ no interest??

Yes, no interest. Wolff has publicly stated repeatedly that his goal is to build a ballpark in the A's current Bay Area market. Not out of state or out of region. If San Jose is denied that may change, but for now with the status quo the A's aren't going anywhere outside the Bay Area.
