A’s effort to move to San Jose—a new wrinkle?

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Here’s an A’s re-location tidbit to file under Hot Stove talk if you’re a baseball fan. The LA Times, citing three unnamed sources, says Major League Baseball has provided the A’s with tentative guidelines for a potential move to San Jose. But wait, there’s more:

The existence of the guidelines does not necessarily mean the A's will move to San Jose soon, or at all. However, if the A's can satisfy the concerns of the league office, Commissioner Bud Selig could let club owners decide whether to approve the move.

Whatever the guidelines contain—and nobody’s revealing anything—the bottom line is that a move still requires approval from 75 percent of baseball’s owners to revoke the Giants’ territorial rights to San Jose.
