Flooding and sewage creating havoc again at O.Co Coliseum

The Oakland A's can't even get a spring training warm up in without the flooding and sewage problems that wreaked havoc at O.Co Coliseum all last season showing up again.

Prior to their scheduled spring finale against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday afternoon, heavy rains began falling in Oakland, and with the usual problems we became accustomed to in 2013, including overflowing toilets in the coaches rooms.

This is where we remind you the Oakland A's are still looking for land to build a new stadium after numerous attempts to get into San Jose were blocked by Saturday's opponent, the San Francisco Giants. Maybe after experiencing the flooding firsthand, the Giants will show a little compassion and let a deal go through.

Ha. Just kidding.

But hey, AT&T Park is still available for temporary use if they can find land somewhere other than San Jose!

Lovely, comfortable or convenient it's not for anybody who shows up at O.Co, but it's still their home, which means this is going to be another long season for the A's.
