I realize Oakland and San Fran is no problem, but South San Francisco is going to support the Giants even if there's a team in San Jose.

And while Santa Clara County has a lot of people, it's also both huge and terrible to travel. Unless you live off the 101, it's going to take you hours to get to San Jose.
