Hideki Matsui of the Oakland A's hits a run-scoring single on June 10, 2011.

The local professional sports landscape has rarely looked so uncertain. Will the A's stay in Oakland, get the green light to move to San Jose, or will they leave the Bay Area entirely? Can Oakland hold on to the Warriors and Raiders? And what about the 49ers' plans to move to Santa Clara? Our sports experts assess the rumors and pick the likely winners and losers.
