Signs look grim for Oakland keeping the A’s

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Mark Purdy at the Mercury News offers five imagereasons why Major League Baseball’s decision expected soon on whether to let the A’s move to San Jose is likely to leave Oakland in the dust. At the top of his list:

Two weeks ago, Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig and members of his so-called "Blue Ribbon Panel" met with A's executives in Arizona to address San Jose's ballpark plan. The city of Oakland's latest proposal was never discussed. The A's were requested to increase the San Jose park's seating capacity from a proposed 32,000 to at least 36,000. This would require no additional property acquisition, just a reconfiguration within the existing footprint. Lew Wolff, the A's owner, agreed to do so.
