I don't know what Selig has against the city of Oakland.
Poole mentioned the quote from Selig back a decade ago and I've posted that message many times here.
Quote from Selig on a TV interview with NBC affiliate WCR, don't know which city that's from...
"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."
4 world titles, which is more than all the other teams west of the Mississippi has combined since the A's moved to Oakland in 68 with I think the Dodgers having 2 and Angels 1.
Not to mention 14 division titles, 1 wild card, and 6 AL pennants.
What? Besides the NYY, the A's have been the most successful franchise in baseball since 68.
What a joker Selig is. I'd lump Selig and the SFG ownership for killing the A's chances of staying in Oakland and maybe the Bay Area, as Picicinni himself thinks is the reason why he wasn't allowed to buy the A's back nearly a dozen or so years ago.
I doubt the A's stay in Oakland, Wolff doesn't want to stay here and he'll always be a prick in my book even if he does somehow manage to build the A's a new park in SJ.
