San Jose okays A's option on stadium land

The San Jose city council voted to approve the sale of land for a new Oakland A's stadium last night ... okay, wait, they actually voted to give the A's a three-year option on buying the land. You know, like they said they were going to do two weeks ago. (San Jose voters would still have to approve any actual land sale.)

In other non-news, still no word on when Bud Selig's nearly-three-year-old relocation committee is going to issue its report on the fate of the A's. (They're still looking for the stapler.) If they do surprise everyone and approve a move to San Jose, though, the A's are ready and waiting to start trading all their best players in preparation. Wait, what?
