A's Ticket Deals

One of the few benefits of low attendance is there is always a lot of deals - I can't remember the last time I paid full price. I started this last year, so people could put all of the deals in one...

In case you didn't see it, McCarthy tweeted this " "They put two guys on the 'Kiss Cam' tonight. What hilarity!! (by hilarity I mean offensive homophobia). Enough with this stupid trend." and...

What if we didn't record Losses, Wins, Saves, Blown Saves and Holds?

With these pitcher stats, I've often wondered what would happen if they simply didn't exist. Specifically, would pitchers pitch differently, would managers make different decisions. Holds: I'm not...

Announcing and Score Keeping at the Coliseum

Seriously, it's been getting progressively worse over the last few seasons: Yesterday's infraction: De La Santos pitched to 3 Mariners and never even got displayed on the pitcher board. It...

Starting Pitcher Earned Run/Game Variance

I was wondering if anyone has done any work on pitcher variance, and what is the optimal balance of Earned Runs given up a game. For instance, say we have an imaginary picther with a 3.00 ERA, 288...

Worst Defensive Players/Postions in the Beane Era

So with all the talk of Carter at 1st Base, I thought it would be time for a retrospective for the worst players at defense during the Beane era, with the caveat being that they have had to have...

Shallow Post: 3 fave, 3 least fave players from Beane Era

I like all the stats as much as the next person, but how about we go for an exceedingly shallow post (and forgive me if I don't have enough tenure to make one). Your 3 least favorite players / 3...

The case for keeping Rajai

So Rajai is going to end up with roughly .280 .320 .375 and 50sb. Broadly speaking I think that's what most people expected; perhaps a little low on OBP I feel he deserves another season....

Statistics that actually predict future?

There are lots of stats that get thrown around AN - UZG, OPS, WAR etc. but it seems to me is that the only thing they're useful for on a go forward basis is their ability to predict the future, and...

Does Rajai need to prove himself anymore?

I say this because I just looked at Yahoo's A's page, and low and behold Rajai is the A's average leader (guessing Sweeney doesn't have enough ABs anymore). At the end of last season, people...

Dontrelle Willis

I have to say that its sad to see a player born in our town go through what he has gone through. At the very least I'm glad he got one big pay day which should last him and his family the rest of...

Has 2nd half Rajai come back?

So Rajai seems to be getting better numbers back; his at bats seem better, more patient (though not always), and more ground balls, which at least gives him a chance to get on base. Given we know...
