The San Jose A’s, Why It Won’t Happen

The chance that the Oakland A’s will end up in San Jose is almost zero. The reason: the San Francisco Giants own the territorial rights to the South Bay, which means all other major league baseball teams are prohibited from moving there. There’s been some suggestion that the A’s could work out a deal with the Giants, just as the Baltimore Orioles did with the Washington Nationals, but that’s highly unlikely for some very specific reasons.
