SITUATION STILL UNCLEAR IN OAKLAND: The A's long-term future at O.Co Coliseum remains uncertain with the team's lease expiring in '15, but CSNBAYAREA.com's Andy Dolich expects the A's "will get a lease extension and this Groundhog Day, this soap opera, will continue." Dolich noted the A's are profitable and have a "heck of a team again this year" after winning the AL West the last two seasons. Dolich: "The fans that are coming have been loyal as heck. If they would just focus on building a new stadium in Oakland, they would be back to drawing close to 3 million fans." The A's are going "to be in Oakland for a long time, just as the Warriors are and just as the Raiders are." However, there remains "no strategy and ... timetable in order for this to happen" ("Yahoo Sports Talk Live," CSN Bay Area, 3/13).
