Wednesday Must Read: Giants to A’s: Not So Fast; California Lowers Prison Population

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. One of the owners of the San Francisco Giants said that the team will fight to block the Oakland A’s planned move to San Jose, the Chron reports. In addition, Peter Magowan, who is also the Giants former managing partner, said he does not believe that baseball commissioner Bud Selig will go back on his word and allow the A’s to go to San Jose. Selig has repeatedly said that the Giants own the territorial rights to the South Bay and that no other team can infringe on them. Rumors that Major League Baseball was ready to approve the A’s move also appear to be untrue. The issue is not even on the baseball owners’ meeting agenda next month. And A’s co-owner Lew Wolff disavowed a recent San Jose Mercury News report that said he was “confident” that MLB would approve the San Jose move, telling the Chron he didn’t know where that story came from.
