I honestly think Billy Beane would be great if he had a decent owner that would let him spend money. I mean what are you supposed to do when your owner does't let you spend any money.
Sell your portion of the team and go to another team where your talents are appreciated. Maybe Seattle?

He wants to be succesful in oakland, thats party of why I respect him. He had a chance to go to Boston for a lot more money and would've probably won at least 1 championship, but he took the hometown discount.

And to add to my last post supporting Beane but hating on Lew Wolff

We'd actually use money to keep our good players more often instead of trading them for prospectsI bet Swisher, Dan Haren, Josh Willingham, etc not stars but solid players would still be A's. and this might even go all the way back to the Tim Hudson and Barry Zito () days. And maybe, but probably not Matt Holliday if we were good (doubtful tho) - Its a chain reaction

lol Rich Harden is already out for the year..I've never seen a player so injury prone
He's having shoulder surgery
I think Rich should just retire. I feel for him. Such a waste of talent.
