Eyes on the Prize
This week, baseball fans were shocked to learn that Major League Baseball had assumed operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fearing damage to the legendary franchise—mired in scandal over the messy divorce of owner Frank McCourt—MLB is even said to be considering forcing him to sell the team. Whether that happens remains to be seen, but it wasn't long before a rumor surfaced that A's owner Lew Wolff was a potential suitor for the Dodgers.
Wolff was quick to respond:
"I'm not interested in the Dodgers ... My focus is deep into getting us a new venue for the A's. That's where my long term is."
So, let's put this one to rest. Wolff remains committed. His eyes are still on the prize. And that prize, of course, remains San Jose.
You're up to bat, San Jose!
