HEARD THIS ALL BEFORE: In Oakland, Gary Peterson wrote Wolff's comments continue the "never-ending story," and "frankly, it's losing its charm."

Peterson wrote, "Wolff has been, for the time being, outflanked by the Giants. Why do the Giants want to stop the A's from moving to San Jose? Because they can" (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 3/2).
