Could the Oakland Athletics call Sacramento home from 2025-27?

According to a report published by The Athletic’s Evan Drellich, Sacramento is the front-runner to host the A’s from 2025-27 before they move to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2028.

Brodie Brazil, NBC Sports California host, joined The Drive Guys on Friday to discuss the possibility, share some upcoming deadlines that are looming regarding Oakland’s attempt to relocate, and much more.
