Postponed A's Game Seen As Another Black Eye For Oakland Ballpark Issue
Published April 7, 2014
MLB NEEDS TO STEP IN: ESPN.com's Buster Olney wrote the rainstorm situation "could have happened in just about every other park in the sport." But add in the ongoing sewage issues, and the "field conditions that develop" when the Raiders start playing games, the A's stadium issue "continues to be an embarrassment" for all of MLB. Until the league puts the issue "at the top of its to-do list and prepares all the necessary horse-trading, nothing will change." The "fault lies with the whole of MLB, not just plumbers or groundskeepers." This is a "glaring case of benign neglect" (ESPN.com, 4/5).
