Lew Wolff and John Fisher Should Sell the A’s

The years-long attempt by Oakland A’s owners Lew Wolff and John Fisher to move the team to San Jose appears to be fizzling out. All the rumors that the move was to be brought up at Major League Baseball owners’ meetings in the past few months have proven untrue. The San Francisco Giants reportedly have made it clear that they have no intention of giving up — or selling — their territorial rights to the South Bay. It’s also seems obvious that the league’s ownership is not going to overrule the Giants and allow the A’s to build a ballpark in San Jose. In short, the A’s have nowhere to go — other than leave the Bay Area. And since Wolff and Fisher don’t want to keep the team in Oakland, they should sell the A’s to an ownership group that will.
