In a letter to A's President Dave Kaval, BART General Manager Grace Crunican says any such station at the West Oakland location would reduce speeds and create uncertainty along the system's busiest stretch of track.

Crunican says construction would be extremely comp;icated. And there are questions about who would pay for the project.

Crunican wrote: "By the time we would be able to design and build such a project, I'm sure the A's would have had at least 10 winning seasons and a World Series win in the new stadium."
