The A’s could be required to guarantee they can both pay for the ballpark privately and still spend enough money to field a competitive team. Wolff and Fisher might also have to promise they would not sell the team within five or 10 years for a quick profit.
And the Giants? They could be forced to pledge that the franchise or any franchise affiliates (sponsors, etc.) won’t file any lawsuits connected to a possible San Jose A’s move. In return, MLB would set up a proactive formula/matrix to calculate the Giants’ monetary situation five years after the A’s are playing in the South Bay — and after that review, compensate the Giants for any damages they might suffer.
Also, why shouldn't Wolff and Fisher be able to sell for a profit in fewer than 5 years?
Selig will let them move to San Jose, but he won't tell them the way there.
Maybe when the A's play the giants in the world series this year the earthquake will be along the hayward fault and swallow the colliseum. All of next years games at AT&T!
