Susan Slusser just tweeted pictures of Taylor taking infield at 1st.
Moss, then who? Barton? Rosales? Lowrie? No thanks. I'd rather take my chances with Taylor than ever see Barton's face in Oakland again.
Taylor is where Carter was last year. Loads of potential but he's playing head games with himself.
Per Kate Longworth, Taylor is getting INFIELD work. Chances he takes over the Chris Carter roll in the 1B platoon?
Let's not get ahead of ourselves here.
A. Carter is not going to hit 30+ homers and become a revelation in Houston, at least not right away. He's going to get way more at bats this season than...
Aside from Moss, the entire infield consists of a bunch of second baseman. We have a lot of depth, but depth of what?
What makes me sick is thinking that we may see Barton again.
Per A's Twitter feed:
A's acquire Jed Lowrie and Frenando Rodriguez from Astros for Chris Carter, Brad Peacock and Max Stassi.
Ugh. What a terrible trade.
So, I'm assuming you're happy with this trade?
Why Cole though? Why not some lesser arm? Why risk such a promising arm on a player of this caliber? I understand that the A's are LOADED with arms...
So, I'm tired of getting no responses from A's beat writers on Twitter. I know I'll get a response here.
Am I completely in the wrong to think that we paid TOO MUCH for Jaso? Cole and 2 others for...
If Denver sucks, then what are the Raiders?
Lock this thread. The poster is a moron.
Per Jane Lee via Twitter: Mendonca is local from Turlock, went to Fresno St. 2nd round pick in 09. Plan to play him at a corner, Texas tired him at C last season.
Any info on the guys we just picked up in the Rule 5 draft?
Thomas Mendonca, 3B (TEX)
Steven Hill, C (STL)
Just read that we are looking to get Peralta from Detroit if Drew falls through.
Beane's award is more prestigious than the Baseball America award. I'd equate it to the MLB Hall of Fame versus the College Hall of Fame.
You can't argue with what he's done but he's falling into the same traps he made in 2011. I think more than anything, Sabean's players have made him look a lot better than he really is. Before 2010,...
This deal needed to be done. They would be hurting without him. They did what they had to do to sign him but he's 37!!!! I'm hearing they are going hard for Stanton now.
Haren has been an underrated player his whole career. He'll bounce back in Washington. Great signing and depth.
Escobar has been traded to the Rays. There goes that option, didn't want that idiot anyways.
So far...2 sim games, 2 HRs. He's playing CF in today's sim game.
The only thing I've ever heard about him was he was tall and threw the ball hard.
If I'm not mistaken...we have maybe 3-4 players making $4m or above this season.
