This all day. A deal was to be made in Oakland but Fisher wanted public financing. Zero investment in the team over the years. He’s awful. Crappy way for a team with a history like the A’s to leave. Shame on the MLB for permitting it.
All the worse when you factor in that Bud Selig blocked Joe Lakob from buying the team in 2005.
They'd likely be a model franchise and playing in a gorgeous, bay front stadium.
As Dback fans maybe this is fortunate though... Vegas was the obvious destination if Kendrick wanted to pull a similar move.
