Recently, the Oakland Athletics have been wearing green road jerseys emblazened with "Athletics" instead of the gray ones that say "Oakland." During the team's first road trip, which ended Thursday, the A's wore green jerseys for all seven games.
Some believe Lew Wolff, the Athletics new owner, has authorized this switch in an effort to remove Oakland from the Athletics brand in preparation for the team's relocation. Angels owner Arte Moreno made a similar decision by changing the word "Anaheim" to "Angels." The result: the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
