The A's are not for sale according to manager partner Lew Wolff but that doesn't mean there aren't interested buyers.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday that two potential buyers have emerged for the team.

According to the report by columnists Phil Matier and Andrew Ross, one of investment groups recently withdrew from the bidding process for the Dodgers. The other is by high-profile Silicon Valley executive.

The story indicated that the group formally associated with the bidding for the Dodgers has made its interest in the A's known to Major League Baseball. The other group "will probably do so soon," the story said.

The San Jose Mercury News contacted Wolff on Monday and he said that he has not been contacted on the matter. He also questioned the validity of the story.

"No one has contacted me," Wolff said in a phone interview with the Mercury News. "It's not for sale, but no one has contacted me. Someone made that story up, I think."
