The commissioner’s office has provided the Oakland Athletics with tentative guidelines for a potential move to San Jose, according to three people familiar with the matter but not authorized to discuss it.

This is the extent of the new information in the article.

Are these like the tentative guidelines that the commissioner's office gave Pete Rose for reinstatement?

Yes, this is about as substanceless as these things get. This might be a significant break in this saga, or it might be nothing whatsoever, or it might be anything in between.

He might need a committee for that too.

First, get a bunch of bubble wrap and boxes from Staples, wrap all china/breakables in newspaper, place them in boxes and mark the boxes "fragile"(these should go on the truck LAST) Then, disassemble all furniture, if possible... Have I gone far enough with this joke yet?

I think they have stopped using fragile players and gone with disposable ones instead.

Please, these things take time. The Blue Ribbon Panel has only been at this for 4 years.

Move them to Montreal! Les Athletiques de Montreal works...

I'm hoping for the Las Vegas Rays or the Oakland Aces. The "Aces" unis would look great with actual aces on the sleeves and cards used for the numbers on their backs!

Theone surprising thing in the article is that financial arrangements between the A's and Giants were not an issue holding things up but rather the A's not having solid financial arrangements to get the new park built.

If you can afford it, save yourself the hassle and have the movers do all the packing and unpacking -- it's well worth it. Then hire a cleaner to come in and clean the old place. That #### is just way too much hassle. This is why God created the service economy.

This being the A's, I assume the "afford" bit is out of the question but maybe they can trade Tyson Ross for a United Van Lines voucher.
