For those who care about these preseason projections, here's another one...
"I watched 32 years ago the Kansas City A's move to Oakland. They hurt the Giants badly. They never really did very well themselves. It was a horrible mistake."

Speaking of SJ, a sports economist from Stanford here locally has stated he doesn't believe TR issue as a huge road block or "death knell" for the A's going to SJ.
Thinks the TR can be settled for 20-30 million.
Very doubtful SFG would want the measly amount. Rumors or speculation is that they'd want at least 100+ million.
If there was one criticism I would lay on the Haas family which I rarely do, it was when they didn't have a clause when they gave up their rights to the south bay back nearly two decades ago that if SFG didn't build a park down south, that the rights from the A's standpoint would return.
Course nobody back then saw the coliseum being ruined by the Raiders return and the SFG org holding onto these rights like it was theirs from the very start.
Again f**k em!
