Trade for R.A. Dickey??? That's crazy talk!

Why couldn't the A's work out a deal for Dickey? He hasn't been inked long term yet, and there's many in the N.Y. media that seem to think that the Mets are hesitant to sign him long term because...

Couple of the offseason trades looking decent right now

The grand opening of the Night Light at 311 Broadway, around the corner from Beer Revolution, is this FRIDAY, MARCH 16th! Like them on Facebook!

Bill King among the Ford C. Frick award finalists again!

+

King is once again a Ford C. Frick award finalist - does anyone know if there is a way to contact/email John Miller or Lon Simmons? They are among the 15 living award recipients that will be voting in the final vote along with 5 historians. It would be nice to let them know that the fans would appreciate not only their vote for King, but their campaigning on his behalf with the other voters. They were friends of his, and they know better than most how deserving he is.

Ok -  I know that most folks here guffaw at most of the ludicrous speculative trade scenarios proposed by various members of the community, but I wanted to offer my lotion softened hand at one such...

Outman Up, Blevins Down - Who's next?

+

Outman up for tonight's (5/23) start in Anaheim - meanwhile Blevins gets optioned down to make room on the 25 man. We'll see if Moscoso is held back from his scheduled start tonight in Sacramento, it's likely because he'll be starting for the A's tomorrow

First prediction thread for the 2011 season - probably about 2 weeks too soon.  I will try not to use more advanced statistics in my predictions since my command of them is poor enough that to use...

Matt Garza - could the A's trade for him???

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!  It seems the A's have largely settled any 5th starter acquisition conversations by stockpiling a collection of mediocre potential candidates...
