LOOKING AT EVERY OPTION: The San Jose Mercury News’ Tim Kawakami said of the MLB committee is "exploring every option possible because they obviously have gone very slowly through this process.” Kawakami said they “will make a decision at some point and they want every number, every line, every box, every option, every reason lined up before they have to make the decision.” Kawakami added, “That’s what this process has been for 41 months.” But the Oakland Tribune’s Monte Poole said the A’s “have made it clear they don’t want to be in Oakland anywhere,” and if the option to relocate to San Jose “is off the table, they will sell the team.” Poole: “They don’t want just a ballpark. They want a ballpark village. They want condos, they want retail" (“Chronicle Live,” Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, 8/6).
