Shame that such an historic franchise (#3 all-time World Series titles, #3 all-time division titles, #8 most HOF inductees) has become such an after-thought.

If the A’s could only take a page out of the Giants playbook: new ownership (Magowan in ‘93), high profile FA signing (Bonds in ‘93), new stadium (broke ground in ‘97, opened in ‘00), revitalized fan base.

Interestingly, from the year the A’s moved to Oakland (1968) until the last year the Giants played at Candlestick (1999), the A’s out-drew the Giants in 17 out of 31 seasons. Hmmm…
