    It's truly sad, but on June 4th, I've already given up on this season....we just don't have the horses...again.

      It's sad. We need that new stadium, where ever they decide to build it... We would have had a shot had we kept some pitching in the off season...

        Josh Reddick was definitely a good acquisition! He's better than Holliday and Willingham! I wish the Bosox would have taken Coco Crisp instead of Ryan Sweeney though. Whether or not Andrew Bailey's injury would have occured if he stayed with the A's is speculation for sooth sayers, astrologists and gambling fans.
        Gio Gonzales is having a super star season with Washington, but the A's probably would have lost him to free agency if they kept him. I'd hate to see Gonzales as a free agent Yankee acquisition! Cahill is not raising any eyebrows for the time being. Breslow is rebounding with the D-Backs, but Ryan Cook is looking even better. Trading Brad Ziegler was apparently a mistake, he keeps proving his doubters wrong! Parker and Milone are good starters, who would look much better with some run support!

        I think most of the trades were reasonable or neccesary for the A's.

              The arrogant east coast took it in the shorts today! The A's, with a 'supposedly' inferior team swept the Yankees FOUR games and the Dodgers swept the Mets. It's Miller Time!

                        It's in less than half a season's worth of ABs, but anybody else notice that Brandon Moss is slugging close to .600?

                          Wow the A's clinched a wild card spot with their 4-3 win over the Rangers! If the A's magic keeps up they'll beat the Rangers in the final 2 games and win the division with the best record in the American League. If Travis Blackley can rebound from his dismal last start and beat the Rangers tonight I'll take that as proof that the A's have a Fairy Godmother helping them out! :gt

                            In other news, Ben Sheets announces his retirement.

                            The Mets have the best, smartest fans in baseball.

                              Amazing! Blakely and the A's beat the Texas Rangers again! If they beat the Rangers today: Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2012, they will win the division and the Rangers will have to fight for a wild card spot!

                                Grant Balfour shouts a victory cry after getting the final out of a 12-5 rout of the Rangers, who lost 3 straight to the A's! AMAZING!!! The A's have against all predictions won the AL West Division!!

                                Ranger manager Ron Washington will be lucky to stay on as the Rangers' batboy, if the Rangers lose in the wild card spot! Washington never was much of a hitting coach when he was with the A's. The new A's showed him how to really hit in baseball!
