City Attorney Dennis Herrera is hinting that he might file suit against the Oakland A's to keep them from moving to San Jose, which is technically part of SF Giants' territory, reports the East Bay Express. If the A's went through with their proposed move, Herrera argues, it would financially hurt the Giants, and therefore hurt the City of San Francisco as well.
Meanwhile, a group of Giants fans in San Jose is fighting public funding of the proposed move, and Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums has been outmaneuvering A's owner Lew Wolff, undermining his claim that there are no viable stadium sites in the East Bay by proposing two potential sites near Jack London Square. Dellums also pledged redevelopment funds to assemble land, improve infrastructure, and build parking for a new stadium. So, maybe Oakland will get to keep its baseball team after all?
