    Completely gutting the team too. Yet, they are still better than the Mariners.

    Fuck moving the A's.

    Would be so shameful for the MLB to allow that.

    Build a stadium in San Jose. They support their teams.

    Fuck Portland or Vegas or some dumb shit new location.

    Good for Oakland. If the team refuses to spend money to provide a quality product, why support them? Oakland fans doing what Mariner fans don't have the balls to do.

    That place was a dump 25 years ago, which is the last time I was there…

    Edit: The Raiders thrived there, went to LA, worked the city for a “remodel” to return, and bolted. “Mount Davis” killed it for baseball…Al Davis went vertical on their ass…”Just Win, Baby!”

    I think I remember something about San Jose being in the Giants' "territory", they needed to sign off and refused to do it...

    Vancouver bitched about Seattle getting a hockey team. Different distance I know, but still. The giants are a huge brand anyways. Tell them to stfu.

    Disagree. They are a pretty successful franchise. Spending money in baseball is often a huge waste. A team like the Yankees, Dodgers, Red Sox, etc can afford the busts because their money is endless. Players don’t hit free agency until 29-32 and most the big signings end up being terrible. It really is tough to get it right.

    I’m sure they would spend more money with a stadium. Nobody wants to go sit in a dump when the Giants have a beautiful ballpark. What casual fan wants to bring their family or a group of friends to a shit hole? So the A’s have 5-10k diehards and little else.
