Nice quote from article above:
Chomsky (Brooklyn): Billy, how will the sale of the team (to a group of which you are a part) have an impact on future budgets? Do you foresee a payroll increase in the coming years?
Billy Beane: As in the past, our budgets going forward will be a direct reflection of our revenues. It's no secret that it's imperative we secure a new venue here in Oakland. In the brief time I've been associated with Lew Wolff, I can say that if he can't do it, no one can. I would also that, though, that Lew is at the same time a big fan, and if there's a "right move" -- whether a trade or signing a free agent -- he's open-minded to being flexible with the budget.
