We better not attempt to sign him in the Off-season he has way to much power with this club.
Also glad to see A-Fraud struggle keep striking out and being payed through the roof Lol.

"I tell you what -- Russell's a mental giant," said Sherman. "When the ball didn't bounce his way, he didn't go in the tank and say, 'Woe is me.' He stepped up when we needed him most and he won the game for us. I'm not sure people get how great he is. I hope they get it now."
Would be awesome to see Detroit's defense cost them three straight against the A's
I'm done watching baseball till 2013.
"King Felix has hurled more mega quality starts since 2010 than 14 entire MLB teams."
I feel the same way about Oakland. Seems like they threw a bunch of scrubs and rooks together and pulled that season out of their ***.
Not a fan of Detroit! Plus the A's overtook Texas while not allowing the Angels into the postseason.
I'm happy for the A's for those reasons alone.
Rooting for someone in your division is like banging your family member. It may sound like a good idea to some but you just don't do it.
wisdom right there
Well, go Giants I guess.
Tons of upsets so far. All of them really.
I'm glad the Nats lost.
That decision to sit Strasburg could have severely bit them in the ***.
Your first playoff appearance and you sit your star. Awful idea.
When increasing your innings pitch by more that 20% in a season the % go drastically up (i believe like 80%), that you will suffer an arm injury the next year, its close to a given. On top of that you have the mark prior AND Kerry Wood 2003 example, dusty through caution to the wind and rode their young arms, robbed the Cubs of a potential dynasty, and 2 SURE FIRE HOF careers.
Pitcher has the highest probablility for injury in sport, you have to have a program and stick to it when building them up to be 200inning guys, (especially if he is less than 2 years removed from TJ).... remember with felix, we had to monitor his innings against his will, now he is conditioned to go 240innings and doesnt have arm problems..... And the thing with stras, even if he were to feel something in his arm, no way hes saying anything, thats the kinda competitor he is, and extremely dangerous situation.
I feel alone on this island of thinking.... that being said, if they woulda made the NLCS i woulda given him a bullpen session and see about working him up for a game 4 or 5 start, hes too good and i think 10-20 more innings with that much on the line makes sense... they still would be limiting the risk.... they can start his winter throwing program later ya know and pick up the cautious approach beginning of next season.
