Despite some rumours that two parties would be interested in buying the Athletics and keeping the team in Oakland, Athletics managing partner Lew Wolff states that the club is not for sale.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported earlier Monday that two groups, including one that recently dropped out of the bidding for the Los Angeles Dodgers, have expressed "serious" interest in the A's. The former Dodgers bidders made their intentions known to baseball commissioner Bud Selig, according to the Chronicle.
According to Wolf, nobody has contacted the club. Wolf said that someone made that story up.
