The skinny: San Francisco resident, but now expatriated to the Washington DC area. 2006 Pomona College grad. Nutty fan of the Olympics (particularly the Winter variety) and college hoops. Slightly less nutty fan of the A's, the Sharks, and the Niners. Generally dislike the NBA, but will watch any entertaining and competitive sporting event. Yes, even biathlon.

Pomeroy picks Bears 8th, #88 overall

3

Based on preseason guesses at skill level and playing time, Ken Pomeroy has projected the Bears men's basketball team to finish 8th in the Pac-10, with a roughly 15-17 record (some approximation needed because not all opponents are yet known). I think the defense will be a bit more stout than he is projecting, though the offense could easily be worse.

Comparative Advantage: A Collaborative A's/Rays Solution

52

Hello all. I've written a fanpost discussing possible trade solutions for the A's and Rays, leveraging the fact that the Rays have infielders and starting pitchers while the A's have catchers and bullpen pitchers aplenty. I'd like to hear both sides of the issue, though, not just A's fans. Are my proposals logical? Too favorable to one team or the other? I think this could be a great discussion, but I need your help to make it so.
