    Regarding the W’s…
    Where Oracle is now, it has very easy access…
    for people who drive, there is gas, bridge toll, parking is a bi*ch…no one is going to want to go…at least not now! Lacob could lose money more by fans not showing up!

    You guys can’t rely on Inge for anything.

    Granted he had a great two weeks, but he has a 10 year career of being pretty $hitty, and not hitting a lick.

    I would see if Donaldson can play before wasting 200 AB’s on Brandon Inge.

    I disagree.
    I’m rolling w/ the RBI machine right now.

  • DMAC

    + he has the better glove.
    Anything on offense is a +++++

  • Just Fire Baby

    The Freak will be fine, DMAC.

    It is all mental. Trying to overpitch.

    And Reddick is going to get one in his ribs for that little extra shove he put on our boy.

    Print that!!!!

    First, the Hulk smashed Lincecum. Than Reddick took care of the rest.
    lol

    Not only has the freak lost his confidence, but he has def. lost a little velocity on that fastball. Its def. a concern.

  • lefty12

    Cowgill is the one who knocked him on his a$$,not Riddick-if you are talking about the play at the plate.Actually Sat. pitcher should get one in the ribs.If you are going to pretend to take one in the chest somebody might as well really put one there.

  • Just Fire Baby

    I’m rolling w/ the RBI machine right now.

    *************************

    Wait until those grand slams turn into inning-ending DP’s and you may change your tune.

    Donaldson got into one this weekend, and seems decent on the corner.

  • DMAC

    My bad, that was Cogwill.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Whoever it was, non-descript white OF for the A’s, is going to get ribbed.

    Bochy don’t play that way.

  • lefty12

    I agree about Inge,but might as well ride him while he is hot.

    That was the first game this season the kid had shown anything on offense.
    If there’s someone who needs to go, it should be Barton’s sorry ass.

    Bochy don’t play that way…lol…
    OK…

  • hwnrdr

    BTW: Interesting to see David Shaw chopping it up with Reggie and Clink…hmmm…

  • lefty12

    Riddick = non de script white OF?You guys wish you had an OF as good as him.You could use someone who can knock the ball out of the park and get consistent RBI.

  • Just Fire Baby

    The A’s have some OF prospect named Taylor (Michael I think??) that my buddy (A’s fan) was wanting to see on Saturday along with Manny.

    What a disappointment he was. I am not sure I have seen such a lazy, non-determined OF. He did hit a double off the wall, but he literally jogged after balls and never made any effort other than to collect it and toss it to the cutoff man.

    Maybe he was dinged.

  • lefty12

    He has been a huge disappointment.

  • Just Fire Baby

    The Melk man and his MLB leading hit total is better than Riddick.

    Both are good defensively.

  • hwnrdr

    Wow, we went from basketball, to football, back to basketball, to football, back to basketball, now baseball! hey, at least it is sports talk, right?

  • DMAC

    Lefty12

    How long before we make the switch to Cook as our closer? He has some nasty stuff.
    I think Balfour is trade bait right now and Fuentes is not the answer.

    I can dig it!

  • Just Fire Baby

    Dude was huge though.

    He looked more like a DE than a RF.

    Better sign him now, before he gets 2 pricey.

  • DMAC

    Why exactly did we let go of Allen? Did Beane think Barton was better?

    =============================
    I wonder why it hasn’t already happened.Balfour has been terrible and I agree,Fuentes is OK,but we could do better.BTW,I just looked it up and S.Smith has never played 1st in the majors.We might be stuck with Barton.

  • hwnrdr

    Beane needs to GTFOH!!!

  • Just Fire Baby

    How about Gio Gonzales?

    I think he would be the Cy Young winner if the season ended now.

  • Just Fire Baby

    That Ross dude from Saturday was a perfect parallel to Jonathan Sanchez.

    Great stuff, can’t locate, throws an astronomical number of pitches per inning, and probably won’t amount to much.

    I miss Gio, but I have to finally give credit to Beane for his recent off season trades.

    We picked up…….

    Tommy Milone
    Ryan Cook
    Reddick
    Parker
    and some other dude

    Nice solid additions.

    Again…Beane needs to GTFOH!

  • lefty12

    Cabrera might have a better AVG but Riddick hits for power and gets RBI-it isn’t even close.Besides,Cabrera won’t face our staff every weekend to pad his #’s.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Steve Corkran: Teams have a need for more than one tight end.

    ***

    pick two out of four, Raider Nation

    86 David Ausberry
    81 Kyle Efaw
    82 Richard Gordon
    83 Brandon Myers

    He can take his boyfriend Barton w/ him 2.

  • lefty12

    It’s too bad Anderson couldn’t have been traded instead of Gio.We got some good players for him,but the guy is lights out.
