"What I think was new today was the commissioner’s full-throated support of this notion. It is no longer the position of MLB that getting a ballpark built in Oakland is the priority, if that ballpark doesn’t come with the rest of the package. Today, MLB made explicit the league’s policy that the ballpark is a secondary concern, that public access to that ballpark is a tertiary concern."
