[vertig0/Marine Layer's has followed the A's ballpark situation for the last 6 years, in great detail. If you want the latest on the stadium situation in all aspects, his site is the best, and this interview is especially awesome - Zonis]
Last week I did a two-hour interview with Lew Wolff, similar to the interviews Blez has conducted in the past. Since my blog is all about the team's continuing quest for a ballpark, the interview focuses mostly on stadium issues, baseball's internal politics, the process, and economics. The transcript of the interview has been split up into five parts, with the first part posted on Monday. The final part is now up. If you're interested in the subject matter, check it out.
- Part 1 – History of working in Oakland, 980 Park site, Process
- Part 2 – Oakland now and what it takes, Earthquakes, contraction
- Part 3 – Territorial rights, Giants’ motives, Dodgers/Mets, Coliseum
- Part 4 – Tarps, discounts, player development, CBA, payroll, T-rights again
- Part 5 – Redevelopment, Target Field, Cisco Field, Keith Wolff, museum and history
When possible, editor's notes have been added.
If you want a recap, Field of Schemes has a good one.
