Moved to Oakland in '73. I Loved everything about the A's right from the start. Crazy uni's, crazy owner, mustaches and long hair (not allowed by most teams), and winners on the field. I endured the late 70's, I was there for BillyBall, the Bash Bros, and then... Moved out of the Bay Area in '91, but I've never wavered, I'm an A's fan for life- (probably NRAF unless I win the lottery) unless some owner pulls an Irsay or an Al Davis. That might tear it... Now, finally, after almost 20 years of only getting to see maybe 3-10 games per year, either when they made the playoffs or were playing the Red Sox, I can finally watch nearly every game, thanks to CSN!

2013 Best of AN Awards

Alex Hall has just written a front page article about "Athletics Nation Best of 2013 Awards". I read that as a (very fun) awards post about the best stuff that happened on AN during 2013, as did...


I sure wish we could have a do-over on just one trade. Plus, an honest offer to just one guy who left.

It seemed like a no-brainer at the time, and yet it has plagued us throughout the season, and what's worse, a careful glance at the offensive statistics of the player in question could have led us...

Recovering from seizure related to beaning


It is too quiet around here.

As I roam around the baseball blogosphere, I find virtually no mention of the A's anywhere. All is Slegna vs. Rangers in the AL West. It would appear that the reigning AL West Champion team is...


What fielding-independent stats predicted for the A's in 2010 and what this means for 2011, with apologies to danmerqury

Update 1/2/2011 around 2:30 PM: my file-sharing host is down for maintenance, so all charts are unavailable. Will check back periodically- I'd expect them back tomorrow This is my first attempt at...


A little FanPost help from my friends?

I've been working (for longer than I care to admit) on my first FanPost (which will now become my second), complete with several table graphs. I'm having the following problem, which I hope someone...
