A's Likely to Move? Regarding Selig's Comments Today

According to a report by ESPN, Bud Selig is saying it is up to Lew Wolff to consider additional options for a new ballpark. Asked if he would approve a move by the A's, he said it would depend on where.

Yahoo is coming out with a similar story that seems to imply that Selig believes A's should explore options outside of the Bay Area.

Is the end of the A's to San Jose? Living in the South Bay, I have been crossing my fingers really hard for a San Jose move. If they instead move out of the Bay Area, this would really sting.

This raises a lot of questions. Are the A's going to stay in the Bay Area? Where might the A's explore moving to outside of San Jose? What do you think are now the odds that the A's move to San Jose?

As people have been saying in the thread, it looks like this is just a continuation of the Status Quo.
