MLB Attorneys Say Selig Rejected A's Move To San Jose Prior To City's Lawsuit
Published December 10, 2013
THIS ISN'T OVER: In S.F., Susan Slusser cited sources as saying that MLB "did not outrightly reject an A's move to San Jose, despite that contention" in the filings. Sources said that Selig's letter "addressed only the details of the stadium relocation proposal -- not the principle of relocation." The league "questioned the feasibility of that project and felt that insufficient financial information and attendance projections had been provided about a downtown San Jose site." The sources said that the nature of the dispute "suggests there is a chance that a revised stadium deal might still work" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 12/8).
