In S.F., Matier & Ross cited sources who said that the A's are offering to drop their $48M claim against Oakland. Matier & Ross wrote the A's, in return, are looking for a "couple of million in cash, and for their Coliseum landlords to release them from having to offer up the team for sale," which they are required to do for a four-month window if they want to opt out of their current lease. Matier & Ross: "So far, it's not exactly going over like gangbusters" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 6/29)....Bulls Chair Jerry Reinsdorf said Monday "that he intends to involve Michael Jordan in the team's search for a new coach, and has already discussed the matter with Jordan" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 6/30)....In Orange County, Kingsley & Garcia profiled the Padres' Hispanic marketing effort and wrote the team is "reaping dramatic results" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 6/28). In Baltimore, Peter Schmuck examines the efforts of Padres President Larry Lucchino to obtain a new ballpark for the team. If such a move fails, the team could relocate to Northern VA, but Schmuck writes, "Sounds logical, until you talk to friends of the new, laid- back Larry, who have watched him embrace the Southern California lifestyle and doubt that he is all that eager to get back into the Washington rat race" (Balt.
