Why are the A's Selling/Rebuilding?

In the wake of the recent Trevor Cahill trade, fans are often left scratching their heads. They're confused as to why the A's are trading away their studs for unproven minor leaguers, and why the...


The Nestea Banner ads

These ads are getting ridiculous. I really want to be able to read ElCroata's new post during my lunch break, but having these gigantic banner ads on the side with girls in swimsuits make work...

Rosenthal: A's must move or be contracted


Obviously still very far off and not to cause worries yet, but more fuel to the "MLB needs to make a decision yesterday." Any time I hear the word contraction, even if its incredibly remote, I get shivers.


DLD 1/24/11: Why hello, Jeff Mathis.

I woke up this morning, and much to my surprise, the Wells trade was still a thing.  This made me very happy.  Here are some links for you. Sam Miller made some amazing word clouds taking data from...

A's outbid the 2nd highest on Iwakuma by 11.4 million


Twins were the 2nd highest at 7.7 (compared to the A's 19.1 million.) I guess we were bidding against ourselves at the start?


DLD -- 12/3/10. Sad Edition.

Jack Cust has been nontendered.  Edwin Encarnacion has been as well,  as has Travis Buck. Slusser: Ryan Sweeney has avoided arbitration with a one year contract. This is not a DLD for baseball...


A newcomer's guide to a few commonly held viewpoints.

Nico suggested someone should make one of these a while back, and when I threw out the idea in a DLD, it was generally well received (though some warned of impending badness.)  Regardless, I felt...

Ellis, Kouz, Barton, Oakland in general snubbed again.


Somehow I envision the Gold Glove voting process to be like being a contestant on the Price is Right. Rather than thinking intently about the right answer, the voters just look behind into the crowd, and hold up fingers that say "Derek Jeter" and "Mark Teixeira," and whatever name is yelled back the most profoundly in the chaos becomes the vote. This doesn't seem academic. http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=1b&stats=fld&lg=al&qual=y&type=1&season=2010&month=0

Why are there so many stupid hidden fees? I just bought two tickets for the as red sox game on the 19th in the bleachers, which should've been 26 bucks. 4.50 convenience fee on each and 4.25 shipping and handling (which is there even if I choose print from home [which costs an additional 2.50 + my own printing costs at home]) means I end up at 40 bucks at the end. It makes me sad when the players wonder why we don't come to games, but stuff like this really infuriates me.

-me, because I wanted a place to rant, and not in a fanpost.

SuSlu: Duke out for the year

http://twitter.com/susanslusser/statuses/14981244198 #Athletics announced Duchscherer will have hip surgery and miss the rest of the season Apparently the hip injury really is the same as before....


Is it just me or do I not understand the phrase "long term plan" but still have opinions?

Today while my Office reruns were at commercial, I watched two outs of the As game (I'm a diehard fan that reads every post exactly like this but never comments on them, really) and I watched Jason...

High School Pitcher throws 4th straight no hitter


With, according to the scout's report, only average stuff for a high school pitching prospect.


Chavez says he's ready for Opening Day

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/recap;_ylt=AmM._6dzGaI3bbt8DN_pA8KFCLcF?gid=290330119&prov=ap He says he's ready, which makes him our Opening Day 3B, which leaves somebody off.  Is it Pennington?...


DLD 1/05/09: Giambi Preparation Edition

I've never done this before, so I apologize if I'm stepping on anyone's toes, but we haven't had a good DLD in a while, and Urban's recent release that the A's are close to signing Giambi to a one...


The Eternal Question: What Jersey is worth buying?

Around this time last year I realized that the Bobby Crosby shirt I bought at Fanfest 2004 was near the end of its life, and I wanted to buy a new jersey or shirt.  When I perused the roster and...
