ABC7’s Casey Pratt joined Whitey & Watkins ahead of the Bay Bridge series that sees the Oakland A’s travel to San Francisco to take on the Giants.

Tuesday’s matchup between San Francisco and Oakland will also feature a protest similar to June 14th’s reverse boycott game at the Coliseum. A’s fans have asked Giants fans to “Unite The Bay” and protest the team’s expected move to Las Vegas. Fans will be handing out black “Sell” shirts and posters that say “Unite The Bay” with an image of a San Francisco and Oakland player shaking hands.

Will there be unity between the two sides?

Topics discussed with Casey include:

  • How much cooperation will the A’s fans get from the Giants fans at Game 1 of the Bay Bridge series
  • Thoughts on a split cap and why tonight is the only appropriate game to wear one
  • Why A’s fans are fighting against ownership and how this could be an MLB-wide issue that could unite many fanbases
  • John Fisher is done in Oakland and doesn’t want to go back to the negotiating table
  • Have there been any significant moves since the All-Star game to keep the A’s in Oakland?
  • Is expansion in Oakland a real possibility if the A’s move to Las Vegas?
