Why is it that Selig is trippin off of the fact that the A's moved to Oakland (right across the bay from he S.F. Giants) back in the late 60s, when you have both the Cubs and White Sox playing within the same city limits of Chicago, He never seems to mention that. Or how come you have the Angels and the Dodgers playing so close together, I mean Anaheim to L.A. is like Alameda to Oakland, it's just TOO CLOSE. S.F. and Oakland are close but at least their on different sides of the BAY, where they both can be supported.
So what's the big deal

Giants ownership is bitching about the A's taking away money they think could get if the A's weren't in the Bay Area. They want this market for themselves and they and Selig have been trying to get rid of the A's for quite a while now.

The A's success the past five years have gone against what Selig and his blue ribbon panels have stated and I don't think it pleases the higher ups of the baseball offices.

Butthead's argument may have held some water when the gnats played at Candlestick, although I really doubt it, since there's not much cross-over between gnats and A's fans. However, the gnats sold out almost every game for the first 3 years at the phone company park, so how are the A's hurting them? If the gnats start losing attendance, which they already have and will continue to do when Bonds retires, it won't be because of the A's, but because they have a crappy team and no farm system.
