    Its called the biggest jump in the minors (A+ to AA) and a small sample size. He had 0 walks today in 6.2 innings. Nobody said he was a finished product ready to dominate the MLB level.

    Rowdy Tellez 4 for 5 with a HR, 2B, and BB. On fire the past ~20 games.

    Richard Urena 3 for 5 with a 2B and a BB. Average up to .329. Nobody expected him to hit this well.

    Rowdy had 26 strikeouts in 124 at bats, with 15 walks. That is a solid K-rate and a good BB/K split, which at least signals that he wasn't completely over-matched at the plate. The small-sample...

    Pompey's "start" was only an 11 game sample, and even though his slash line wasn't good he was actually posting a respectable K rate. Besides, he was a much bigger project (especially physically)...

    What exactly is the difference? Beane has picked up a lot of guys who turned out to suck with the A's just as much as they did with whatever team he got them from. He's got a built-in advantage in...

    The A's management can say whatever they want. There is no one in that front-office or in Chicago's front-office that seriously believes that Straily is Strasburg. A guy that isn't topping 90mph is...

    Seriously? Oakland has the best record in baseball, won 96 games last year, and 94 the year before that. The reality is that they are way ahead of us, which is why they made this trade: they are...

    Straily's velocity is down big time, about 3 mph since 2012. Any comparison to Strasburg is laughable. He is throwing 88 mph right now. He's not as good as either Stroman or Hutchison, and never...

    These kids will hardly be "major trade chips" in two years. When making major trades, teams value top prospects in AA and above who have cleared enough hurdles to at least make it appear that they...
