Obviously it was time to move in a different direction, and I know the A's didn't want to pay the big salary increase for him in 2008. But I'll still miss the guy. He truly seemed to be was one of...

Dan Meyer done for the season....again

Well, for the second year in a row, Dan Meyer is hurt, and hurt badly enough that the A's plan to put him on the shelf for the rest of the season... A blurb from today's Chronicle: It appears that...

Brown up...say goodbye to DJ on Sunday...

EDIT: I'm assuming that bringing Jeremy Brown back up to the bigs starts a chain reaction where Melhuse becomes Swishers backup at 1B, and Dan Johnson is sent down. I wish I would have posted my...
