Congrats to Gio for his first all star game appearance! If Cahill hadn't f**ked up the last 2 months he would be going as well

Yeah now Billy Beane is saying "time to trade Gio"

I 100% assumed Gio would be traded this year. Has the most value, lots of talent, but can be erratic. Granted he has been great this year

I hope the A's keep him and give him a long term contract

We should trade Brett Anderson before his value goes down. He looks like rich harden 2.0 to me
7 runs!

Scott Sizemore is looking like a stud!

and Gio with another great start, 3rd in the AL in ERA

at least you get to see maybe future HoFers in Ichiro and Felix
Does anyone else think we should fire Billy Beane?

I mean seriously, what has he done since 2000-2004?

2004 traded Nelson Cruz for garbage
2005 traded Tim hudson for garbage again, i know we had to trade him cause of cash problems, but we couldnt get anyone better?
2005 Andre Ethier traded for Milton bradley bradley ended up getting DFAed

2008 We trade Carlos Gonzalez and Houston street for Matt holliday
and then Holliday for Brett Wallace, who we traded for Michael Taylor
Brett Wallace is batting .300 for the Astros, while Taylor is struggling in triple A

and all we do is sign washed up scrubs like Matsui

he has lost his touch

Oh yah and I forgot to mention him choosing to build our team around Chavez instead of tejada

Same here. My favorite A's pitcher Ever.

I would really like to see what Beane can do when he has the green light to spend. He's been working with a budget during his tenure.
