CLOCK IS TICKING: A's Owner Lew Wolff said he is satisfied the MLB committee members that for three years have been studying the A's relocation options are "putting their arms around this." Wolff: "I know that we're all -- especially me -- frustrated. But it's important that when a decision is made, that it's a comprehensive decision. A patient account. It makes the path going forward to a new ballpark as easy for us as possible." MLB.com's Barry Bloom noted Wolff "asked MLB in 2008 for permission to move from Oakland 35 miles south to San Jose and Commissioner Bud Selig put together a committee to review the A's relocation options inside and outside the Bay Area." The Giants "have opposed the A's request to move to San Jose," citing their territorial rights (MLB.com, 2/23).
