Wolff: A’s aren’t for sale

Oakland AthleticsThe Oakland Athletics aren’t for sale, according to owner Lew Wolff, adding that no prospective buyer has contacted him.

“No one has contacted me,” Wolff told the Oakland Tribune in a phone interview. “It’s not for sale, but no one has contacted me. Someone made that story up, I think.”

It was reported yesterday that two potential suitors had approached MLB about their interest in the A’s: a group that had fallen out of the bidding for the Los Angeles Dodgers and a group led by a Silicon Valley investor who already owned a Minor League Baseball team.
