I am curious as to what would happen to the A's in a few years. According to a radio personality on knbr the other day, she said that under the new cba, the revenue sharing will stop for major market team and will only take effect to small market teams. in other words, chicago, los angeles, and new york won't get part of the revenue sharing, but pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Milwaukee will. Since the bay area is considered a major market, neither the Giants nor A's will get this revenue sharing even though oakland is considered a small market town. So that cheap ownership is screwed. Maybe that's why they're desperate to move to SJ to make up the lack of funds they're not going to receive from the revenue sharing.
