On Tuesday, the city of San Jose sued Major League Baseball in an effort to jump-start the Oakland Athletics' proposed move to San Jose. After nearly four years, the MLB has yet to vote on the relocation plan. San Jose city officials accuse the San Francisco Giants and MLB of blocking the move to avoid competition for the Giants. We discuss the lawsuit, and the politics of Bay Area baseball.

Host: Dave Iverson


  • John Woolfolk, city hall reporter for the San Jose Mercury News
  • Sam Liccardo, San Jose City Council member and proponent of the A's Stadium and of the decision to file the lawsuit
