    Oakland A's may play at AT&T Park next year if no deal reached between A's and city

    Major League Baseball would help the Oakland A's move across the bay and play at rival Giants' AT&T Park in San Francisco if Coliseum officials don't come to terms on a new short-term lease for the team, sources tell us.

    The A's two-year home stint at AT&T Park, which would start next season, would probably be the first step toward moving the team out of the Bay Area.

    The league's hardball warning was passed on to Coliseum officials at a closed-door meeting by Jon Streeter, the San Francisco attorney who is representing the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority in the stadium lease negotiations.

    We're told MLB is also demanding that the Coliseum give the A's just a two-year lease extension - not the five- to eight-year deal the authority has been pushing.

    The short-term lease would give the A's more flexibility should the team's owners swing a deal to move to San Jose - or beyond.

    This is a great way for the Giants to make some revenue, it really doesn't hurt us in any way, shape or form.

    No one is claiming it'll hurt the Giants, just that none of us like the idea of sharing the park with another team. Doesn't seem unreasonable to want it not to happen.

    I agree completely. The Clippers don't deserve to share the same building as the Lakers. Not in the slightest.
    Would they be rebranded the Oakland A's of San Francisco?

    also have heard conversation over the last year that the Raiders/49ers should share the new stadium. Hell #$@$^%$ NO to that!!! They better not let that ghetto team and ghetto rat fans in there.

    Athletics will be staying in Oakland a little longer. Owner Lew Wolff will extend the lease w/ @OdotCoCOLISEUM #Athletics
    - Raiders Tribune

    Not sure how reliable that source is though.

    Side note: I go to the OdotCoCOLISEUM twitter page and it's pretty fun what's written in the bio.
