MLB Reportedly Behind A's, Giants Sharing AT&T Park If O.co Lease Issues Persist
Published November 4, 2013
KICKING THE CAN? CSNBAYAREA.com's Ray Ratto wrote of MLB's proposed deal to help move the A's, "The Coliseum, of course, will cave, so we don’t really need to sweat that too much." This is "mostly a holding action by 28 owners who want to do nothing at least for the next year and change," so that MLB Commissioner Bud Selig "can go into retirement bequeathing this little bucket of phlegm to his successor" (CSNBAYAREA.com, 11/3). YAHOO SPORTS' David Brown writes of the A's possibly moving out of the Coliseum, "This rumor has been floated in order to scare A's fans, officials, politicians, whomever, into 'doing something.'" The A's "actually getting a new stadium in the Bay Area sounds more politically feasible than sharing a park with the Giants" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 11/4).
