OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Athletics owner Lew Wolff insists his team is staying put.
For now, at least.
Wolff said Monday that the A's will extend their Oakland Coliseum lease and ''look forward to another great season.'' The team's managing partner responded Monday to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle saying Major League Baseball might get involved to help the A's play across the bay in the San Francisco Giants' AT&T Park if no short-term lease was reached to continue in the rundown Coliseum.
The small-budget A's have won consecutive AL West titles, losing in five games of the division series to Detroit in each of the past Octobers. The Coliseum, shared with the NFL's Oakland Raiders, had multiple sewage problems in 2013.
Wolff hopes to move the team to San Jose.
