Interesting and fairly detailed article in the December issue of San Francisco magazine on the A's intentions on moving to San Jose. I think it would be a great move because it would get them further from the Giants, get them the new smaller and fancier stadium they need, be in a larger population area that has a higher per capita income, and be closer to Silicon Valley's numerous corporate headquarters.
...this article will be the first place where the two A’s owners have decided to make their case for San Jose.
It also says the Giants are still strongly opposed to the move.
The Giants will likely disagree. Though the team had no comment for this story, managing partner Bill Neukom was quoted in the summer as saying that the A’s “can’t have the South Bay.”
I know a lot of you don't want the team to move but I think that is already a foregone conclusion. If it's not San Jose, then it won't be anywhere in California. Staying in Oakland or moving to Sacramento are pipe dreams. I think we need to rally around management here so that they can have our full support in their upcoming battle against the Giants in trying to get the territorial rights to San Jose.
