Now he's saying he wants to spend his career here. Personally, I thought he'd move into New York pinstripes, next. Guess the ball is now in ownership's court.

Not sure the A's in their current financial state would be willing to spend potentially 1/4 or 1/5 of their payroll on one player for the foreseeable future.

A's current financial state is solid. Yearly profits and and an over 230% increase in franchise value. Not NYY or anything close, but solid.
Ownership is just cheap.
