San Jose Lukewarm to the A’s



Maybe the Oakland A’s won’t end up in the South Bay after all. A new poll shows that San Jose residents are evenly split — 45 percent to 44 percent — on the idea of the A’s relocating to their city. The Chron also reports that a South Bay poll commissioned by the San Francisco Giants earlier this year revealed that San Jose residents strongly oppose an A’s move if it involves spending public funds for a ballpark. Santa Clara County assessor Larry Stone, a leading proponent of moving the A’s to the South Bay, told the paper that a separate poll showed stronger support for the team moving, but he declined to divulge details.
