Rebuilding and Sabotage are two different things.

The Plan appears to be:

First the Sabotage, then the move, then the Rebuild.

Interesting article on the A's lease:

A's soon-to-expire lease is a bargaining chip for Oakland - By Angela Woodall, Oakland Tribune

Here's the brief:

"The team's contract at the O.co Coliseum in Oakland expires at the end of the 2013 season. Even if Major League Baseball decides to grant the wish of A's co-owner Lew Wolff to move the team to San Jose, they won't have a ballpark to play in for several years.

That means the A's will be in Oakland until at least 2015 -- if not much longer -- giving the city and county a bargaining chip when they start talking about extending the Coliseum contract."
