The Warriors are leaving Oakland for San Francisco next year.
The Raiders are leaving Oakland for Las Vegas in 2020.
The A's? They will be the last team standing in Oakland when the dust settles, and they have announced plans for a new stadium at Howard Terminal. But the stadium plan still faces plenty of hurdles before shovels can hit dirt.
Oakland's own Marshawn Lynch wants to make sure the city doesn't somehow lose the A's too, so on Wednesday night, he went to the a city council meeting and made a plea to the members.
"We're losing the Warriors. We're losing the Raiders. Best not lose the A's. Appreciate it," Lynch said in a brief statement.
Oakland's own @MoneyLynch spoke in front of the city council tonight on behalf of the A's ballpark project. "We're losing the Warriors. We're losing the Raiders. Best not lose the A's. (I) appreciate it." #RootedInOaklandpic.twitter.com/Nq85EBqM3g
