Lew gives first public indications on MLB in SJ

http://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/stories/2009/03/23/daily101.html

Seems to me this is as close to an admission that San Jose is now the goal as you'll hear until the Giants are out of the picture. He strongly thinks that San Jose deserves an MLB team but he does stop short of saying the A's are that team. Also lists the price of the 14 acres in downtown SJ for the first time at a relatively paltry $80 million dollars and suggests that price could drop a further $25 million.

Additional reports on the same event in the SF Business Times. Wolff went on to say the fate of the A's stadium search lies in MLB's hands now, which again points to SJ and the territorial rights issue.
