The Oakland A’s are hoping to build a new stadium and residential and commercial complex on what is now Howard Terminal. For our loyal readers, you know we are opposed to this invasion of commercial uses on maritime property and see this type of development as completely incongruous with port activities.

Outside of that fact, are the A’s even the type of partner the port should be considering?

Meanwhile, maritime operations are considered essential, cargo is still flowing, people are still working in every aspect of the supply chain, and the port is still getting its rental payments.

So, who is the better partner?
