    "One thing is certain about the latest incarnation of the Earthquakes: The team will not be playing in Spartan Stadium, which opened in 1933, on the campus of San Jose State University. Wolff’s offer to finance a new stadium there was rejected. “I may never know the real reason why,” Wolff said. “And I don’t really care.”

    Wolff said one of the key members of the team’s brain trust would probably be Billy Beane, the A’s general manager, who is a rabid, if closeted, soccer fan. Beane’s frugality and keen evaluation of baseball players for a small-market team was dissected in the book “Moneyball.”
