No A in San Jose says Wolff
San Jose will not be getting the A's.... at least anytime soon. As many of us predicted Selig was not willing to budge and Magowan was uninterested with the idea of the A's in San Jose. That seems to leave Oakland and Fremont as the front runners for a new ballpark. Fremont though continues to hold the upper hand, with it's Pacific Commons property. Newly elected Dellums and the Oakland City Council have yet to act this summer; Councilman Larry Reid feels "The history of the A's is the history of Oakland, but there needs to be the political will both in the city and the county." Oakland officials have continued to not address the stadium with a viable option, and continue to wait for a solution instead of creating one. Fortunately the possibility of a San Jose stadium has taken a hard hit. This is the time for Oakland officials to begin talks with Wolff, and find a location or solution suitable for Wolff's plans.
