A’s to San Jose? ‘No decision has been made’
Not yet, says a person close to the process in San Jose.
The denial comes as one Bay Area blogger claims a committee studying whether the A’s can move to the South Bay is set to deliver the OK for such a move. The report, which is not attributed, says the committee will give its much-awaited report to Commissioner Bud Selig within three days.
The A’s have announced their intention to move from Oakland, but the league would have to approve any move to San Jose because the San Francisco Giants own the territorial rights to Santa Clara County. The Giants say they will steadfastly defend those rights.
“It’s patently absurd that the committee is preparing to issue a report and recommendation,” said a person close to the process in San Jose. “There is no report coming out in the next three days. No decision has been made. The committee continues its work and the committee’s work is not completed.”
