The A’s Will Not Be In AT&T Park Next Year

Earlier this month Major League Baseball and the Oakland A’s told the Oakland Coliseum Authority that unless the Authority renews the A’s lease in Oakland for only two years — which the A’s and MLB want — instead of five — which the Authority wants — that the A’s could move to AT&T Park in San Francisco and play its home games there as early as next season.

Awkwardness averted: the Authority is voting on a two-year extension for the A’s today. The A’s deal is even going to be sweetened somewhat, as the new lease will give the team a greater share of the stadium’s food services and revenues. The vote is expected to pass.
