CORRECTION: Diaz and MLB officials met last Thursday the 18th. Diaz told me it was “last Thursday”, but I milled around the council chamber chatted A’s and worked myself into a state of confusion.
They met two Thursdays ago last Thursday. I have no details, and he didn’t seem to have any sense of when the MLB committee would make its recommendation or what that recommendation would be.
Diaz and I also had a brief and somewhat confusing budget conversation. He said he’s “concerned about last quarter’s numbers” and he’s been open with employees about the city’s financial struggles, but it’s still too early to talk layoffs or budget cuts.
