If you told me six months ago Oakland City Council would vote 6-1 in July (non binding terms or otherwise) supporting HT ballpark, including city finding $350M in infrastructure, I would have called you insane. Fact: Oakland took *huge* steps towards accommodating A’s today.

With 18 acres of proposed public parks, the Howard Terminal ballpark district would provide 400% more publicly-accessible open space in Oakland next to downtown and on the waterfront.

At 4.5 acres, Francisco Reservoir on Russian Hill will be the largest new public park to open in the urban core in 40 years and should be an instant tourist destination because the Hyde Street cable car line clanks along right next to it.

Outfielder Mark Canha and the New York Mets are nearing a deal, league sources tell ESPN. Canha, 32, is a versatile, high-on-base guy who can play all three outfield positions and first base. When finalized as expected, the Mets will have gotten better.

Interesting: "If representatives of the Chargers and/or Raiders were feeding St. Louis with ways to undermine the Rams’ bid to move, Kroenke seemingly would have a strong argument for why he shouldn’t have to shoulder the entire settlement."

Thank you to the Port of Oakland for a great discussion today about the infrastructure bill, and how it will impact the Port's zero emissions seaport plan. And thanks to the A's for a tour of the proposed Howard Terminal site.

Wander Franco does not have a no-trade clause in his mega-deal with Tampa Bay. There is a $3M assignment bonus if he gets dealt. And if he remains with the Rays through 2031, he’ll get 10-and-5 rights that allow him to block any trade.

This… is genius. Make a bold push to better connect Oakland residents and visitors to the waterfront. Make it happen with or without the A’s. But having a waterfront ballpark district plan ready to be executed as a huge part of it sure doesn’t hurt…

Let’s be clear: the absolute best case scenario for all of MLB is for the A’s to get a ballpark deal done in Oakland as quickly as possible *and* have an expansion option close to ready in Vegas (or elsewhere out west). A’s seem to be pushing positively on both of these items.

“We think it’s a really positive development,” said Dave Kaval, the president of the A’s. “We are really encouraged by it. It puts us closer to getting this project in front of the council for a binding vote.”

After all this time, the fact that the Federal government just passed the biggest investment in infrastructure *ever* at the exact same time that the biggest remaining hurdle to getting an Oakland ballpark built is finding $ for new infrastructure is... pretty amazing.

Oakland has secured new federal $ to build bus rapid transit (BRT) lanes along Broadway from 2nd-11th (JLS to central DT Oak) and new bike lanes on MLK from 2nd-San Pablo. These will go in regardless of what happens at Howard Terminal, but obviously hugely helpful if HT built.

Good morning, Oakland just got a RAISE grant to extend Broadway Bus Lanes down to 2nd Street and up to Grand Avenue. Thank you @OakDOT and @RepBarbaraLee!
