A Parallel Universe Offseason

Trade Deadline Thread

With the non-waiver trade deadline about a week away, I thought it would be cool to create a thread where everyone could post their thoughts and the trades they wish that Oakland would make. My...

The (Jay) Marshall Plan

This plan is predicated on defense and sucking for another year.  So please don’t point out that I am throwing a little league team out here in 2010.  Not only do I know, but it’s pretty much what...

Oakland MLB.com Shop Question

The Case for Abreu

Utley and Beyond

In today's preseason game between the Twins and the Phillies, Chase Utley hit a triple and a double off of Johan Santana.  Despite the obviously miniscule sample size, I take this as an awesome...

Gauging the SS prospects

I think one of the weakest positions right now for top tier prospects (with the exception of 2b, and perpetually the catcher) is suprisingly the Shortstop position.  Obviously we got Brandon Wood...

What would you do?

At the trading deadline, you're Billy Beane.  The team is a couple games over .500 and no team has really taken charge of the AL wildcard.  The Marlins come calling and offer you AJ Burnett for Dan...

Morales completely raked at Rancho Cucomonga (best name ever).  He has been called up to Double A in Arkansas.  His debut was kinda lame (0/4, 1 rbi, 2k's), but the stats aren't really indicative...
