Mayor Reed asks MLB to drop Giants territorial rights to SJ

Things just keep coming up with the A's stadium hunt.

Chuck Reed, mayor of San Jose, has put on the agenda for the city council to vote to allow him to officially request that MLB drop the Giants territorial rights to San Jose since the city got no say in the establishment of those rights. This request appears to be part of a package of moves geared toward an eventual A's stadium in San Jose.

EDIT: Santa Clara County is also getting in on the fun now and is planning to issue a similar demand to MLB to drop the Giants rights to the county or at the very least open them up to being shared by both clubs.
