This is why even if the A's were to be contracted (which wont happen) I would never EVER be a Giants fan.

LOL. I'm pretty sure the Giants wont be too upset that they wont have you as a fan. Have fun rooting for a last place team though for the next decade. They will always be the stepchild in the Bay Area and should move anyway.

meh giants had a lucky year and will be an average team the next few years

And the Giants were always the "stepchild" until like 3 years ago years. A's owned the 70's 80's and2000 - 2006. Both teams were nothing in the 90's
Stop acting like you guys are the Yankees cause you guys had 1 good year

Not to mention we beat you guys in a world series!

LOL. The A's havent outdrawn the Giants in attendance in 20 years. All they are now is a team that trades off their best players and doesnt do anything to try and win. They are a pathetic franchise run by terrible ownership. As for how the Giants will perform in the next few years... well I dont have a crystal ball so I dont know if they will win another WS or not. One thing I DO know.. they will have a much better chance than the A's.

Just the facts. Unlike you who seems to have some crystal ball and know the Giants will be average for the next few years.

lol I know the A's owners are terrible ad I realize that we trade our great players every year, and it freakin annoys me. Im just saying dude following the franchise it pisses me off how pathetic we are now especially after being one of the best teams last decade.

It makes me feel better to say you guys will be average

I will say this though we have enough prospects now to be good in 2015 lolz too bad we'll probably trade those players too

Its hard to blame him though. Kind of like being a Warrior fan. Maybe its the curse of Oakland.

If Seth Smith couldnt be a consistent hitter in Colorado its hard to imagine him being great hitting in Oakland. However, he has always been pretty decent against RHP. He just cant hit Lefties at all and is at best a platoon player.

Why do you take this post personally? I'm not going to get into it with you. If the 49ers still sucked I would feel bad, at least I have the 49ers to fall back on while the A's are sucking. I'll celebrate the few minor successes and wait for the day when we'll be good again. Sports are cyclical, the A's will be good again in time. Unless you're the Clippers, Warriors, Cubs, Pirates, Browns, or Cardinals.
