The Oakland A’s stadium situation appears to be getting closer to being resolved. The Howard Terminal Project is heading towards a binding resolution on June 30, something that is expected to be a formality after the Final Staff Recommendation suggested removing Port Authority Use from the area. This clears one of the final hurdles from the A’s getting their waterfront ballpark in Oakland.
At this point in time, just about everyone outside of the Oakland A’s are fed up with Dave Kaval. His position as a mouthpiece for ownership, and his constant flirtation with Las Vegas, have made him one of the more hated people in the franchise. It is a drastic change for someone who had once been viewed as a possible saviour for the organization.
One would imagine that Oakland A’s team president Dave Kaval would have a lot on his plate these days. Between trying to pick a city for the A’s, the Howard Terminal Project and the team’s flirtation with Las Vegas, and an outright revolt from the fans, Kaval should be a busy person.
Oakland A’s president Dave Kaval tweets through it, challenges local sports radio host to televised debate
If the Oakland A’s organization is looking to generate sympathy and compassion for itself as it attempts to convince taxpayers to chip in for a new ballpark, team president Dave Kaval’s current strategy does not appear to be working. While Kaval’s tenure atop the team started well enough...
The first two games of the 2022 Bay Bridge Series have come and gone, with the A’s splitting a win and a loss. But the usual playful competitiveness ratcheted up a bit, as Athletics President Dave Kaval took to Twitter to try and defend the Coliseum’s lagging attendance numbers by pointing the same finger at the Giants.
I know that the series between the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics is over (for now) but since I was off for yesterday’s BP, I didn’t get to add on to the public dragging of A’s President, Dave Kaval. Now, if you aren’t on social media,...
A’s President Dave Kaval sends out multiple tweets complaining about Oracle Park attendance during Bay Bridge Series opener
The Oakland A’s are averaging 7,942 fans per home game so far this season, by far the worst mark in Major League Baseball. Yet, A’s President Dave Kaval seems to be more interested in how many people are attending games across the Bay. In a bizarre string of...
A’s president Dave Kaval went on a head-scratching Twitter tirade during Tuesday night’s A’s-Giants game, as he wanted to discuss attendance at the Bay Bridge Series opener.
The Oakland A’s simply do not spend money on payroll. They hammered that point home this offseason and during spring training, jettisoning their stars as they sought to fall below $50 million in salary obligations for the 2022 season. According to team president Dave Kaval, that is simply how things are, a part of the cycle of the A’s and nothing will change it.
Dave Kaval is taking quite a bit of heat from the Oakland A’s fanbase lately. It is entirely understandable as to why that would be – he is the face of ownership and is going to be receiving the brunt of the fan’s ire when it comes to the team’s general refusal to spend on payroll. That anger only increased when the A’s doubled ticket prices while undergoing a fire sale.
For better or for worse, Dave Kaval was brought in to be the face of the Oakland A’s ownership. He is the one who has to justify John Fisher’s cheapness and attempt to sway public opinion. It is often a thankless job, and one that opens him to a great deal of criticism.
