MLB commissioner Bud Selig is, although he understands the urgent nature of the topic. On Thursday, Selig did not seem in the mood to mess around with the topic or even give a blanket answer, as has been his custom since the issue became national news.
Here is what he had to say at Thursday's press conference, as relayed by the Sports Business Journal's Eric Fisher:
I asked Selig re A's/San Jose, as usual. "I'd be disappointed if you didn't ask," he said. "You're not going to get a f#%**%} answer."If the answer was not enough, the topic that was once on the"front burner" of Major League Baseball is nowhere near being resolved. The San Francisco Giants do not want them in San Jose, the city of Oakland does not want them in San Jose and there does not seem to be any urgency from Selig to get the matter resolved in the near future.
