On That’s Amaury News and Commentary:

#1 Amaury, just have to ask you about the concerns that Oakland residents have regarding the cost of building a new ballpark although it’s suppose to be done with private funds the public is worries that a tax is coming with a new A’s park?

#2 No figure has been presented regarding a price tag for the new ballpark that would include, housing, retail, and parking structures.

#3 The A’s are paying for the new park from private funds it’s the housing and retail and surrounding infrastructure that the public is worried that they’ll be on the hook for?

#4 Amaury, crime in Oakland has been in headlines of late with two Berkeley High schoolers getting shot and killed in Oakland and an Oakland High School shooting that ended up with six adults injured how much does that play into the A’s moving into safe downtown for their fans?

#5 On the field tonight for the Los Angeles Angels lefthander Patrick Sandoval (6-9, 3.09) for the A’s Adrian Martinez (4-6, 6.08) a 6:40 pm PDT first pitch at the Oakland Coliseum.
