(Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics remain the worst team talent-wise in the AL West division and one of the weakest in the American League. Their future will not be tied to Oakland, and they will probably have played in three different cities before the decade is up considering they will be in Sacramento from 2025-27 and plan to move to Las Vegas in 2028. However, that doesn’t mean they haven’t been entertaining to watch from time to time. In fact, they have been better than expected. It surely won’t last too long and don’t expect them to contend, but the ..read more

(Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)   On Thursday, it was announced that the Oakland Athletics will play three seasons in Sacramento after 2024. Their current lease to use the Oakland Coliseum expires this year, so they had been looking for a place to play until the Las Vegas stadium is completed. The long-term plan is still to play in Las Vegas at some point before the end of the decade, but the new stadium won’t be finished before 2028. That’s why the sides came to an agreement to play in Sacramento’s Sutter Health Park from 2025 to 2027, including an option for a fourth year s ..read more

(Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics will be playing their last season in the city this year. Starting from 2025, they will be playing three seasons in Sacramento (possibly four), before relocating to Las Vegas for good. A’s fans are obviously heartbroken about losing the team they have rooted for during their entire lives. They look like a Triple-A team now, but the A’s won have four World Series and six pennants since they landed in Oakland in 1968. The 1970s A’s were something to behold, as was the late-1980s version. Right now, however, the franchise is managed by ..read more

(Photo by Loren Elliott/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics’ future is tied to Las Vegas. However, to play there, they need to finish building a stadium and that isn’t expected to be the case before 2028. Their home games were initially expected to be in multiple locations, with Salt Lake City, Sacramento, and even San Francisco being options. Now, however, it was announced that Sacramento will host A’s games from 2025 to 2027, with an option to extend the pact to 2028. They will use Sutter Health Park. Sutter Health Park is where the Sacramento River Cats play: they are the San Francis ..read more

(Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics are, inevitably, playing in Las Vegas sometime in the next four to five years. Owner John Fisher and MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred did everything in their power to make it happen, leaving an entire baseball city without a team they have rooted for since 1968. The plans for the construction of a new stadium in Las Vegas are there, the funding plans are mostly there, and the other owners’ approval is also there: the A’s will be out of Oakland before the end of the decade. Their current lease to play in the Oakland Coliseum expir ..read more

(Photo by Brandon Vallance/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics will officially move out of town after the 2024 season. The team has been in Oakland since the 1968 season, and won four World Series in the process. Unfortunately, their owner, John Fisher, is eager to relocate because he doesn’t see enough profit in staying in Oakland. The plan was to move to Las Vegas by 2027. Now, it could be 2028 or 2029, but the move is happening. Since the team’s lease to play in the Oakland Coliseum ends after 2024, the organization will now play at least three seasons (with an option for a fourth, i ..read more

(Photo by Loren Elliott/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics are still determined to relocate before the end of the decade. Despite breaking thousands of hearts in Oakland and numerous public petitions not to move out of the city, owner John Fisher is still eager to take the team to Las Vegas. That plan has hit some bumps in the road, though. First, there were problems with the funding of the new stadium. Then, owners had to approve the relocation, amid the opposition in many circles. The plans to build the new stadium in Las Vegas are in place, but it won’t be ready before 2028. As a re ..read more

(Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics are, plain and simple, a bottom-five team this year in MLB. They also were very, very bad last year, and the year before that. When ownership doesn’t want to invest to win and instead has their mind on relocation, these things happen. Oakland is 1-4 to open the 2024 season. Their offense is not particularly productive, and their pitching is abysmal. Everybody knew that. However, not many people had them with their worst defense in baseball. In the five games they have played so far, they have made 13 (!) errors. MLB Team ..read more

(Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)   One team that MLB fans never see make noise in the offseason is the Oakland Athletics. Last season, the A’s were the worst team in baseball, and their unwillingness to spend money is an issue. The A’s never pay up for any top player and when they do get a star player they trade him before his contract is up. Any move the A’s make is seemingly cost-efficient and will help keep their payroll down. The only way the A’s are going to be successful is by drafting and developing their players. But, they did decide to go outside for some help on Frid ..read more

(Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)   After the owners’ approval earlier this month, Oakland Athletics owner John Fisher has a clear path to moving the team to Las Vegas before the 2028 season. There are still steps he and his team need to complete (important ones, too), but he has the green light from his fellow owners. Fans in Oakland are deeply hurt that the team that gave them so much joy is now going to be taken away from them. However, they still intend to watch and enjoy baseball, and have unveiled a new local team. “A new baseball team is being unveiled in Oakland after MLB ap ..read more
