After the A’s ultimately defeated the Red Sox, Moreland reflected on being welcomed back to his old ballpark. It was definitely special,” Moreland told reporters, per MassLive’s Chris Cotillo. Something that I greatly appreciated and am humbled by.
The Oakland A’s caused a stir this week by confirming they’ve received permission from Major League Baseball to explore relocation options. Maury Brown, who covers baseball for Forbes, joined me for a conversation about the possibility of the A’s landing in Portland. Brown pointed out that MLB owners would need to approve any move with a 75 percent vote.
In the A’s last six postseason appearances, they were eliminated three times in the Division Series and three times in the wild-card game. There was often a sentiment they could have or should have gone further. You can say that about a lot of teams that get there,” Moreland said.
