Middle Infield Situation

The A's have had a long standing issue at 2B since 2012, when Jemile Weeks couldn't repeat his 2011 season. Since then, the A's have switched back and forth between replacement players and...

Internal 2B Options (AAA)

As much as I want a trade for a great 2B to happen, I figured I'd look at worst case scenario for next season. I turned to our minor league system to see who is in the pipeline. Looking at the AAA...

Prospects, Draft Picks, and The Oakland Athletics

On July 4th, the A's made huge move and acquired Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs. In exchange they had to give up their 2012 1st round draft pick Addison Russell and their 2013 1st...

How Valuable Is A First Round Draft Pick?

With the draft beginning tomorrow, I wanted to take a look at how valuable a 1st round pick is. Of course later round picks can prove to be valuable in time, but I wanted to focus on the #1 overall...

Fixing Our 2B Issue

Our 2B has had issues for a long time now, it seems like the fix continues to be pushed back. Like kicking a can down the road, and like the Federal Government, nothing gets done. I would love for...

Jake Elmore and the 2015 Season

The Athletics just reported acquiring Jake Elmore from the Chicago White Sox. I am sure most of us have never heard of him, so here is a quick rundown. He is 26 years old. From Alabama. He was a...

Extending Cespedes

I am sure, by now, everyone has heard or read the statement Cespedes made about getting an extension and staying with the A's for his entire career. He is a very talented and relatively young...

Balfour vs. Johnson: Why it was the right move

Balfour just signed with the Orioles on a 2 yr/ 15mm contract. While some of you are upset about this, which is understandable, I would like to present the facts. Losing Balfour was not only good...

Omar Infante

Why are we not going after Omar Infante? He is asking for a 4yr deal, but the highest he is getting is 3. Yankees offered him 3 yr/ 24mm (8mm yr). Why don't we offer him 4 yr/ 32mm (still 8mm yr)?...

Trading Cespedes

I saw a note today on MLBTR that mentioned Arizona D-Backs talking with the A's about a possible Cespedes trade. They are in need of a power bat, and Cespedes fits the bill for them: h...
