I thought it was going to be in the context of "boy, Loria really f*cked the A's out of whatever little hope remained of getting a new stadium" or even "does anyone know what the f*ck this thing is on my head", but it was just a pedestrian "I'm not going to answer the f*cking question". What a waste of an f-bomb.

Jeff Loria will save the A's!

Over the past decade, Selig has continually clung to unwritten laws of “territorial rights,” noting that anarchy would exist without them.

"Human sacrifice! Giants and A's living together! Mass hysteria!"

Things that keep me up at night...

What if, through the course of linguistics, the evolution of language, and scientific naming conventions -- atoms were 'fatoms' and/or hydrogen was 'fydrogen'... would the world be forced to actually say the word #### instead of 'F' bomb?

Nah, they would scratch the first letter and drop 'uck'-bombs.

Sadly, Gary Carter is no longer with us to answer this.

First, dying his hair blonde, and now cursing in public? What has got into Bud? Better keep an eye on his "biographer".

A slip of the forked tongue by Selig.

And yet he had no problem moving the Nats to DC.

Or leaving the A's in Oakland which is more than twice as close to SF as is San Jose.

The A's should "study" moving back to Philadelphia - that might get MLB to find a suitable Bay-area location a bit more rapidly.
