I just recieved my copy of this week's USA Today Sports Weekly in the mail. On page 2 it has a one sentence item in The Buzz.
"The Oakland A's will be sold in two weeks to Los Angeles land developer Lew Wolff for $170 million, according to high-ranking sources close to negotiations."
Maybe I've just been out of touch since the end of the season, but I had no idea this was even going on. Could this have an affect on the payroll? An increase!?
If anyone can shed some light on this, I (and probably others) would appreciate it.
