Doesnt need to be said but great season by BB. I have to admit I was doubting his skills from 2008-2011 but he has renewed my faith in Beane-ism. He is a true asset to the A's and I couldnt imagine being an A's fan without him. His incredible management style is what drew me to the team initially. Billy is the only reason the A's are as good as they have been in the last decade and I hope he keeps it up through the future. It should be a great next 3-4 years.
