The guys that won't be claimed are usually the ones where teams don't want to pick up their entire salary.

Realistically, what 2B/SS will be available to Oakland going forward? Waivers complicate things, but it's still doable.

Eh, Hiro cost the A's $5.25MM over two years.
Commented on Lester, Gomes For Cespedes Trade: The Long And Short Of It on Aug 1 2014, 3:18p
A's won't be able to compete with any other offer.

See I can't even keep track of how good the A's will be next year.
Commented on Goodbye, Yo, and Thanks For All The Memories on Jul 31 2014, 2:20p
Plus Donaldson, Moss, Reddick, Crisp, Gentry, Norris, Jaso, Vogt

Goddamn it, @K_een_Rosenb_aum___ strikes again!
Commented on Goodbye, Yo, and Thanks For All The Memories on Jul 31 2014, 2:17p
Yeah, that's why he's last. Either way it's a strong starting five with some money to play around with on the FA market.
Commented on Goodbye, Yo, and Thanks For All The Memories on Jul 31 2014, 2:15p
No doubt, but he's an RP.
Commented on Goodbye, Yo, and Thanks For All The Memories on Jul 31 2014, 2:14p - 2 replies
The rotation will be Shark, Gray, Kazmir, Chavez, Pomeranz, Griffin, Parker

Only meaningful FA, then. Both of those guys are replaceable.

No future? The A's are in a good position to compete next year.

Thanks for your input Ian. The A's have scored the most runs in baseball.

Hopefully he doesn't get tossed back out when Gentry comes back.

Plus Griffin coming back, maybe Parker contributes something.
Commented on Goodbye, Yo, and Thanks For All The Memories on Jul 31 2014, 1:35p
I'd reckon you swap Vogt and Moss. Moss is the better defender in the OF.
Commented on Goodbye, Yo, and Thanks For All The Memories on Jul 31 2014, 1:34p - 1 reply
The four spots would be LF/RF/1B/DH. That's assuming Bradley stays in CF.
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 1:31p
Nah, Fuld can handle CF.

If Hammel really keeps this horrorshow up, Chavez will be stretched out enough to jump back in.

Gross. This is why they gotta turn one of those OF into a 2B.

More likely Fuld platoons with Gomes IMO

Fuld only has ~4 years of service time. He'll be arb-eligible if he makes it to the end of the season, won't he?
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 11:32a
Agreed.

Lockard tweeted, "Given Fuld's options situation, if you're the A's, do you hope Gentry's injury keeps him out until Sept. 1 now?"

Eh, Minnesota's a pretty good place for him.
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 11:13a
His FIP and xFIP are the same, both of which indicate he's a slightly-above average pitcher.
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 11:12a

Of all the people that love mediocre players, your attitude towards Milone is incredibly confusing.

You might be able to sign him in free agency but I don't see much of a chance he signs an extension.

This is what I'm talking about with Cespedes being wildly overrated relative to his production.
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 10:51a
As fun as Cespedes is, replacing an OF with a .300 OBP is not that hardest thing to do.
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 10:43a - 1 reply
Wildly overrated given his overall production IMO, but a very fun and likable player.
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 10:42a
Hm, he probably wouldn't help much this year.
Commented on Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes traded to Athletics from Red Sox for Yoenis Cespedes and Competitive Balance draft pick on Jul 31 2014, 10:41a
A's would have to add to Milone, but he would very easily replace Cespedes' production.

Doesn't have to be an OF: adding Gomes still leaves a full OF.

But he's not, so you make a minor adjustment in the lineup and poof you've replaced him with a top 10 arm.
