Maybe it was meant to be …

Even if you want the team here, you have appreciate the succinctness of San Jose

  1. omg! You should trade mark it;-) Almost all my friends in San Jose welcome the A’s. Our blog was promoting “Go A’s, in San Jose”. But your image is brilliant and fantastic. It matches so perfectly. The A’s finally find their destiny.

  2. All my friends throughout greater Fremont and the Bay Area are looking forward to seeing the A’s in their new state of the art stadium in the heart of the bay area; Fremont!

  3. It’s a sign from God – San Jose wants them and Fremont doesn’t(except for top City management who get goofy at the thought of their very own skybox and people who worship Travis Buck but who couldn’t pick Hank Paulson out of a line-up). Why would the A’s even consider going where they’re not wanted? Over time, the City will reject them like a virus. Clearly, Warm Springs isn’t receptive. Get a clue and go where you’re wanted. San Jose has the space, I hear they have their environmental reports in place already, and now they’ve got their new logo. Go and leave us in peace.

  4. THANKS TO ALL THE CRY BABIES AND GEEKS THAT LIVE IN FREMONT WHO HAVE KILLED THE PLANS. SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO COMMON SENSE. BUT IF WAS A CRICKET FIELD IT WOULD BE BUILT. THIS USED TO BE A NICE PLACE TO LIVE !!!!!!!!!

  5. Fremont is dead—-San Jose it is—

    A’s-to-Fremont growing more of a longshot
    The Contra Costa Times reports that the Oakland A’s talks with ProLogis, owner of their proposed stadium site in Fremont, are going nowhere, with Fremont Mayor Bob Wasserman saying the two sides are so far apart that there’s no point in further talks at the moment. (The A’s have a deal with Cisco Systems, which holds a lease on the land, but ProLogis last month declared its opposition to the plan, which would effectively block it.) That’d leave the site by the Warm Springs BART station, but Wasserman didn’t sound too optimistic there, either:
    Wasserman acknowledged that the Warm Springs option had the twin problems of a brand new environmental review and “an upset community, to say the least.” Also, the team doesn’t own any land there. Asked to give the odds that the A’s would still come to Fremont, Wasserman would only say, “Probably lower than they were.”
    Add in that the Warm Springs site is not in a redevelopment zone and so would not be eligible for tax-increment financing (kicking back new tax revenues to help pay for construction costs), according to what Jennifer Lin of the East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy tells FoS, and I think we can classify the A’s stadium plans as “back to the drawing board.”
