Stories that East Bay progressives and environmentalists shouldn’t miss:
1. San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed is threatening to sue Major League Baseball in an ongoing effort to bring the A’s to his city, telling baseball Commissioner Bud Selig that he wants to personally meet with him so as to avoid “litigation,” the Mercury News reports. Other San Jose officials have talked openly about suing MLB, because the A’s are currently prohibited by the league from moving to the South Bay because the San Francisco Giants own the rights to that territory. A lawsuit would seek to eliminate the Giants’ territorial rights.
