The Oakland Athletics will remain in O.co Coliseum through the 2015 season, as an agreement on a lease extension was reached with the city of Oakland Monday.

At least that's what the mayor says:

Several weeks ago, some reports noted the threat of Major League Baseball possibly forcing the A's to share AT&T Park with the Giants for a year or two, but that isn't happening for now. Negotiations on a new lease for O.co Coliseum took place for around seven months before an agreement was reached.

Still, the A's stadium situation remains in limbo thanks to a territorial dispute with the Giants over San Jose and Major League Baseball doing very little -- in four and a half years, mind you -- to help solve the dispute.
