Have We Seen the Last of Oakland A’s Second Baseman, Mark Ellis?

Mark Ellis will always be my favorite A’s second baseman of all-time (barely beating out current third base coach, Mike Gallego of course). Ellis is a guy you just can’t help but like. He’s the total professional, most underrated glove […]

Does Any Oakland Athletic Deserve to be an All Star?

In Oak-Town, Good News These Days is Relative

When you are losers of 12 out of your last 13 games, you will take whatever good news you can get. No, the A’s didn’t win today (but in fairness, they didn’t lose either since they had an off-day). They […]

Headed to Triple A – Kouz Sings the Blues

Guess what happens when you hit .220, garner 8 walks compared to 27 strike-outs, hit a measly 4 home runs and commit 9 errors? You get sent down to the minors. That is what has just happened to Athletics third […]

Josh Willingham Becoming A’s Only True Power Hitter

Bob Geren/ Brian Fuentes Rift Heating Up

Building on what Dan Burt stated earlier, there is a rift that is growing by the second between Oakland A’s manager Bob Geren and closer Brain Fuentes. After using Fuentes in a couple of non-save, late inning opportunities, and after […]

Oakland A’s Hitters Are Getting Off Easy

To say that the offensive firepower that is the Oakland A’s isn’t quite living up to its offseason billing might be a tiny bit of an understatement. To say that the A’s offense sucks is probably getting a little closer. […]

Former Athletic, Vin Mazzaro Has Epically Bad Outing

You all remember Vin Mazzaro right? He was one of the A’s up-and-coming superstar pitchers. He showed some flashes of brilliance in his limited time in the bigs – enough flashes to get us excited. Then Billy Beane traded him […]

Dallas Braden to go Under the Knife

Worried about Dallas Braden ‘shouldering’ the pitching load? So is he. Especially because he needs to have surgery on his left shoulder to repair a torn capsule. This is not good news, folks. In light of Braden’s rehab, it was […]
