A's owner interested in expansion team in San Jose

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The owner of the Oakland Athletics met with the commissioner of Major League Soccer to discuss investing in an expansion team to replace the San Jose Earthquakes. A's owner Lew Wolff met with MLS Commissioner Don Garber on Thursday to discuss ways to revive a professional soccer team in Silicon Valley. The Earthquakes moved to Houston in December but the team's name and logo will stay in the San Francisco Bay area. "Our interest is high," Wolff said. "We think it's a growth industry. The sport is going to take off. We would be hitting soccer at a good time." Garber also met with San Jose city officials and the fan group Soccer Silicon Valley to come up with a plan to relaunch the team here. "We have a lot of work to do," Garber said. "This is very preliminary." Garber had previously said an expansion team could be placed in San Jose by 2007, but he has since backed away from that estimate. San Jose has long been interested in welcoming the A's, who say they need a new, revenue-generating stadium to replace Oakland's aging Coliseum. But Wolff repeatedly has said he will honor the wishes of Major League Baseball, which has ruled the San Francisco Giants have territorial rights to San Jose.
