Especially considering that, back in the day, the A's agreed - as an uncompensated gesture of goodwill - to a territorial division that gave San Jose to the Giants because the Giants wanted to move there. 

I don't know how 2010, 2012, and 2014 have changed things, but all the tech nerds I knew in college who went on to work in Silicon Valley were big Billy Beane fans who appreciated how the A's saw and ran things and started going to A's games as soon as they moved to Northern California. The professional gamblers I know also all love Billy Beane, though.
