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

he has lost his touch

thanks for that by the way

I still love and miss Timmy. one of my favorite players

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.

I'm pretty sure we traded for Joey Devine And he was supposed to be our future closer. He's still pretty good

Braves swooped in and got the Oakland ace for outfielder Charles Thomas and pitchers Juan Cruz and Dan Meyer.

We got Devine from the Braves for Kotsay. That was a pretty good trade

That is unbelievable but you have to believe the coors field effect. We need to trade for a bat. I strongly believe this team can win but we need to stop putting a s**tting lineup out there. We have a ton of starting pitchingg talent. How have we not gotten a trade done?

For real we have at least 8 starting caliber pitchers.

Free Parking Tuesdays last night. I got off the freeway at 7pm. No need to rush...no traffic at all. I drove right into the Coliseum parking lot and parked wherever I felt. No more than 10-12k there last night. Pathetic.
On a mission to meet this Kara lady at one of the games...sure, her games between innings are for the kids, but she's a cutie.
