    The Bay Area is notoriously fairweather and sale rumors have dogged the A's for years!

    the owner in Baltimore (Angelos?) is also against this, says the DC/Baltimore area's not big enough to support two teams.

    Being an A's fan and in the Bay Area I feel that I should comment. The A's and the Oakland Coliseum group have negotiated a year to year lease that goes for at least 5 years (I may be wrong on the time, but I know there is a year to year lease). They are also looking for a site in downtown Oakland to build a baseball only park, much like the Giants did with PacBell park. The current owners don't really want to move the team, they bought the team to keep it here in Oakland. Granted the attendance is not good here, but most of the problems started when the Raiders came back and there was a bunch of changes made to the Coliseum to support the Raiders. I am also a Raider fan, but I think the stadium is really fucked up now. They used to have bench bleachers that you only had to pay $5.00 for, and you could kick pack in the sun and watch the game. IMO the best seats in the stadium. Oh well, I wish the Raides would move so I could watch them on TV. I went to one game and saw mostly gang members and parole violators in my section. It was the most horrible experience I have had at a game. The 49er games were more behaved, and I hate the Winers.

    I've never been to Oakland, but I want to defend the fans there. That Stadium has to be one of the worst in baseball. First of all foul territory is huge, which means even the best seats are far away. Secondly as Dino mentioned they added all these seats in the outfield for the Raiders, that would be just awful for baseball. At least before it was open ended, and you some bleacher seats out there.

    Oakland Colliseum (Network Associates) is a bad place for baseball. They definitely need to make a nice park for that team, who seems to overachieve year in and year out.

    Now, they get Ray Durham.

    LOL, the fucking Sox are a piece of work.

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Not only did they get Durham, but they got Rincon from Cleveland. Some much needed help in the bullpen.
    Now if they can just get the offense going and put some runs on the board.
