Dellums is way late to the game here, but it's a nice try to make it appear he careas about Oakland. There must be an election for mayor coming up soon.
I've followed the A's since 1968 and would love for them to remain close by, but honestly, who wants to drive to or through Oakland. The city will not revert from the jungle is has become anytime soon, so it's best for the team and it's fans to move to a safer, more supportive locale.

I think that Fremont is the place to go. Right on the property which was formerly the NUMMI plant. Revenue would stay in Alameda County. Highways 680 and 880 are very close and there is a plan to build a BART station right there. Is a no brainer.

I did a study myself the other day and my study proves that building a new stadium in Oakland would suck the very life blood out of the city. It would cost Alameda County 64 billion dollars over the next 250 years.
