|Beane Staying In Oakland|
The Oakland Athletics ended the swell of rumors surrounding general manager Billy Beane on Friday, when A's owner, Steve Schott told the San Francisco Chronicle he would not grant the Dodgers permission to interview Beane.
"This offseason is behind us. We're ready to start," Schott told the paper. "Our roster is nearly complete, and the Dodgers' roster is nearly complete. I know Billy is satisfied. If they ask me about it next year, that's next year. There's nothing to talk about now. I don't anticipate anyone contacting me. But if they do, I'd have to say we're set.
"We work well together, and I have a lot of confidence in Billy," Schott told the paper. "He knows how I think, and I know how he thinks. We're on the same page."
It has also been rumored the Dodgers will interview former Mariners GM Pat Gillick.
