Also, it’s an unlikely place for them to run into gangs or drugs or non-protester violence.  You know, as long as they’re out by September. If you didn’t hear, on Christmas Eve (really?) it was leaked that baseball is preparing to actually let the A’s move to San Jose.  Or, at least, give them permission, stadium-pending.  Who thinks to release this on Christmas Eve. Of course, there’s no word on any settlement with the Giants over the territory.  And there was plenty of cursory denials and no comments from all people on record. We’ll see.  I’m still doubtful of the San Jose stadium plan as it is, whether it’ll even pass voter muster and the ridiculous small size of it.  We still have two more slow-news months to go to talk about it.
