- Column: San Jose Sues MLBJune 30, 2013
The Oakland A’s are having a difficult time finding their way to San Jose, but the city proved last week that it’s willing to help pave the way. After waiting four years while a committee appointed by MLB Commissioner Bud Selig “analyzed” the A’s request to move to San Jose, the city elected to place the decision in the court’s hands. Not surprisingly, MLB doesn’t think they will be successful. Rob Manfred, MLB’s executive vice president for economics and league affairs, said “…the city has resorted to litigation that has no basis in law or in fact.” Unfortunately for San Jose, Manfred’s comments weren’t far off the mark.
