OAKLAND: The A's, one of the few teams that has not laid off any front-office personnel during the strike, "probably will not drop any employees -- even if the rest of the season is erased." The A's are currently for sale, with an asking price of $85M (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 9/14). ST. LOUIS: The strike has "inflicted some economic miseries downtown, but riverboat gambling and special events have softened the hit." One restaurant manager, noting the Cardinals poor season: "If there has to be a strike, make it this year" (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 9/14). PHILADELPHIA: Phillies owner Bill Giles, who stands solidly behind the salary cap, was asked to think of the consequences had the strike been in '93 when the Phillies were in the World Series: "I think I would shoot myself. If this was 1993, I might have a different feeling about things" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 9/14).
