A’s Staying in Oakland After All?

I personally think it’s a long shot, but after talk of moving to Fremont and San Jose, we’re now back to talking about the team staying put thanks to the Oakland City Council voting Tuesday night to spend as much as $750,000 on an environmental study for a new ballpark south of Jack London Square. The full story’s here.

It’ll be interesting to see how much longer owner Lew Wolff allows this stadium drama to play out. From folks close to Wolff, it sounds like he’s a patient guy with an awesome plan for a new stadium, but he was already voicing frustration back in July and with the Giants getting so much attention for winning the World Series, I’m sure Wolff’s more eager than ever to get the ball rolling on some new digs.

If you’re unfamiliar with the saga of the A’s new stadium, here’s a great 3-part interview with Wolff from last month. (The links to Pts 1 & 2 are at the top of the page, so be sure to read those first)

So what do you think, will the team stay in Oakland? And if not, where do you think they’ll land?
