I hardly had time to come to terms with Scott Hairston coming to Oakland this past Tuesday. He arrived in exchange for Triple A power pitcher Ryan Webb. By the way Webb pitched two innings against the Giants in Jonathan Sanchez no-hitter.
I am still in shock that Travis Buck was back in Sacramento. He was called up less than a week before. Although he has struggled since his 2006 debut, he is a fan favorite. I don’ think he has been given a chance to prove himself. OK so he had a chance last year but he was injured. Injuries are a part of baseball.
On Saturday third baseman Jack Hannahan was sent to the Mariners.
I’m not sure what the A’s are trying to do. It’s hard to keep up. Some folks like to say, “It’s Billy Being Billy. A’s fans are used to it”.
Are we really? How long do we have to accept dismantling of the team as business as usual? What about getting rid of Bob Geren?
The Rockies weren’t afraid to let Clint Hurdle go early in the season. Look at their performance since.
Can you blame fans for not showing up at the Coliseum? Let’s face it; the team needs a new ballpark. The A’s and the Florida Marlins are the only teams now playing in a dual-purpose park. At least the Marlins are on the move.
I have a feeling, the next time the A’s are at home, we will be missing a few more of our faves.
