The EB Express just came out with this article that investigated the sites Oakland proposed a few weeks back in opposition to the potential move to San Jose or Fremont. They interviewed the land owners and business owners at the sites Mayor Dellums proposed and it turns out that the city has not discussed it with any of the landowners yet. Not only that but a good number of the land owners have no intention of relocating or selling to the city to build a ballpark. This would of course require the city to use Eminent Domain, something the A's have been actively avoiding since day 1. Which in the grand scheme means Oakland still has no ballpark sites that don't come with a slew of lawsuits in their future.
