After a massive 2008 season, during which Jackson hit .300, scored 85 runs and knocked in 75 as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks, the former Cal star fell victim to a nasty foe … the disabled list. Valley fever took away Jackson’s 2009 season and a hernia and strained hammy ruined his 2010 campaign. So, instead of working on something baseball related this offseason, Jackson instead focused on improving his karma.

Hey, you gotta love a guy that worries about his positive energy, right? Especially one that’s a former Bear and current Oakland Athletic. Click here to read the full story.

With spring training quickly approaching a new player has entered into the talks to encourage the San Francisco Giants to release their hold on San Jose, so that – if given the chance – the Oakland A’s can move there. That player is none other than former San Jose mayor and lifelong Giants fan, Tom McEnery.

The Mercury News has the full story, which explains a great deal about the situation if this is your first time hearing about it. As a rare fan of both ball clubs – no really, I like them both – I hope that the Giants get over themselves and realize that A’s and Giants fans are nothing alike. That’s why it’s hard for me to believe that the Giants would lose South Bay fans to the A’s – as owner Bill Neukom continues to say – if the Green and Gold does in fact make the move. And for A’s fans, the sooner the better, because as the Mercury News says:

The timing matters, too: McEnery says he believes that MLB Commissioner Bud Selig’s decision on allowing an A’s stadium near Diridon Station will come soon. And he fears Selig’s decision will go against San Jose unless the Giants drop their opposition.

In other words, all the fans pissed off about the idea of the team leaving Oakland for Fremont or San Jose are going to be a whole lot more upset when the team waves goodbye to the entire Bay Area, thanks in part, to your San Francisco Giants.

Superbowl XLV is set! That’s why Kate and Nick are talking Packers/Steelers, but not before giving the Bears and the Jets some season-ending love. Have fun golfing, guys! Speaking of golf, the duo also touches on the latest Tiger Woods news, catches up with the Sharks and Warriors, and recaps an exciting NCAA hoops weekend. So what are you waiting for? That and much more is ahead on today’s edition of That’s What She Said!
