Oakland Playing Hardball with A's?


Interesting article on the timing of the Coliseum lease expiration (2013) vis-a-vis a new stadium. This quote has a most disingenous ring to it: De La Fuente told the paper this week that "the A's have made it absolutely clear the last place they want to be is in Oakland. The city has bent over backward to persuade them to stay. "Sometimes, enough is enough." I just seem to remember that guy being the most vocal opponent of any new ballpark in Oakland.
