First off: this does not mean anything is happening. Indeed, the only comment Major League Baseball would give regarding the story was that Bud Selig’s four year-old committee “continues to work hard on this very complex, complicated situation.” But this is at least something. Bill Shaikin reports:
The commissioner’s office has provided the Oakland Athletics with tentative guidelines for a potential move to San Jose … The existence of the guidelines does not necessarily mean the A’s will move to San Jose soon, or at all. However, if the A’s can satisfy the concerns of the league office, Commissioner Bud Selig could let club owners decide whether to approve the move.
What those conditions are are anyone’s guess. It could be the invention of a working perpetual motion machine and the A’s would still stand a better chance of moving than if we waited for the committee to actually do something.
But whatever the case, a vote, at this point, would be nice.
