A’s to Oakland: Piss Off, Again

Lew Wolff just can’t get enough of telling Oakland to go fuck itself, can he? Okay, we get it, Lew, now give it a rest. And while you’re at it, good luck with that San Jose deal you covet. We know how much it means to you. In fact, yesterday you had to remind us again: “We are really saying that we’d love to stay in Northern California, and go to San Jose.” Well, we got news for you, Mr. Minority Owner of The Team, it’s not going to happen. The Giants are never going to give up their rights to the South Bay and you’ll never get three-quarters vote from the rest of the league’s owners – even if Bud Selig is your close buddy. No way. Greed is too powerful in baseball, and the other owners are not going to want to open the door to allowing teams to come into their backyards. So, Lew, we know it pains you, but you’re stuck here for the time being. Get used it.
