3yOakland mayor Jean Quan said Friday that the city has a plan to keep the A's and has identified two viable sites for a ballpark. She said she will send a letter to Major League baseball commissioner Bud Selig.
3yWhen the A's said they would trade anyone but Jemile Weeks this offseason, they weren't joking. Young ace Trevor Cahill will be a Diamondback in 2012.
3yArte Morenos feel-good spending spree doesnt really matter much to the As, or the Giants either. This is what happens when the moons align, and in this case, Morenos solar system just queued up in alphabetical order.
3yThe As starting outfield is on the way out. Josh Willingham and Coco Crisp almost assuredly will not be back in Oakland in 2012. Ryan Sweeney is projected as the starting right fielder.
3yFormer As owner Charlie Finley did not get a call to the Hall. Finley was on the 10-person Golden Era ballot to get induction into Cooperstown. He was a polarizing figure throughout most of his time in the sport.
3yLew Wolff's plans to move the A's to San Jose might have hit a road block Friday when the coalition group "Stand for San Jose" filed a 28-page lawsuit against the city for improperly progressing the relocation.
3yThe Rangers are only one of the teams who have been indicated as interested in A's closer Andrew Bailey. Despite all the interest, it remains to be seen if Oakland intends to let Bailey go.
