Wolff made it official that he wants out of Oakland, citing low attendance and season ticket holder numbers as his reasoning. He wants to keep the team in NorCal, but 100% out of Oakland.
I'm hoping now for San Jose, because I don't want to have to drive 2+ hours to get to a game in Sacramento. I hope they stay in the Bay Area.
I've done my part in keeping attendance and season ticket holder numbers up, and I'm pretty sure that if the A's built a nice stadium in Oakland, those numbers would go up to be around the same level hes goig to find anywhere else.
He can't buil a new, state-of-the-art stadium in San Jose and say, "See, I knew more people would come if we moved to San Jose." If the colleseium was in San Jose as is right now, I'm pretty sure the numbers would be the same.
New Stadium = Bigger numbers
New City =/= Bigger numbers
