Fremont: A parking lot with a mayor
The Oakland Athletics are giving up on a plan to relocate 20 miles south to Fremont, Calif., because of delays on the project. Who could blame them, really? Fremont lacks the joi d'vivre of Oakland, which is to say it lacks whistle tips.
I'm happy to keep the A's in Oakland, but not as happy as I'm sure these two are. Take a look at how they reacted to word a couple years back that the A's might bolt.
