Opposite field Jack

Talk to many of the people who follow the A’s everyday, and a lot of them will express concern about what to expect from Jack Cust. His 2007 season proved a great story, they’ll all agree, but at the same time, he did spend a decade in the minors for a reason.

How Cust goes will be one of the A’s most important storylines this season, so his laser-shot home run to left field off Daisuke Matsuzaka a few minutes ago will set hearts aflurry for A’s fans.
