The Athletics are rebuffing Oakland's efforts to propose a ballpark that would keep the team in the city.
In a statement released Friday, owner Lew Wolff said the A's had
"fully exhausted" stadium discussions with the city and had no
interest in going over "old ground."
Wolff's statement came a day after Oakland city officials asked
baseball commissioner Bud Selig for help with developing a new
stadium after the A's recently scrapped plans to move to Fremont.
The A's - tired of sharing space with the NFL's Raiders - had

Wolff says attendance and season ticket holders continue to
decline at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.
