2012 AL WEST CHAMPS Oakland A's Regular Season Thread



it was a pretty badass send off the fans gave the players after the loss, i'll never talk bad about the a's fans anymore after that.

it's like this video is just screaming "KEEP THIS TEAM IN OAKLAND"

Lew Wolff doesn't want to stay in oakland

I hate Lew Wolff. We could be building a stadium in Jack London Square but instead he wants to fight for San Jose when he doesn't even have the territorial rights there. It's been 4 years and nothing has happened, move on Lew

I'm kinda excited but our OF is already in good shape

Cespedes, Crisp, Reddick and now Young

We needed another bat, I like this trade a lot but I don't get how this is gonna work out lol

I hope this doesn't mean we're trading Crisp. Crisp was a huge part of our success in the second half.
And is it safe to say at this point that the D-backs is Billy's favorite team to trade with?

Since 2007:
Dan Haren and Connor Robertson (who?) for Brett Anderson, Carlos Gonzalez (), Chris Carter, Greg Smith, Dana Eveland, and Aaron Cunningham

then there was a long gap before a flury of trades starting in 2011:

Brad Ziegler for Brandon Allen and Jordan Norberto
Trevor Cahill for Jarrod Parker, Ryan Cook, and Collin Cowgill
Sean Jamieson for Stephen Drew
Cliff Pennington and Yordy Cabrera for Chris Young

What great trades those were for us


This is gonna be interesting.. wonder what Beane is gonna do
Actually now that I think about it, I think Young more likely is replacing Gomes than Crisp.

Young is an every day player though
Great, power, very good speed, very good fielder, strong arm
If we keep young he should be in the lineup every day

My friend is a huge A's fan, and he thinks you guys will be trading Crisp now.

He said TB tried to sign Crisp last year, and maybe they would do Crisp/Weeks/prospect for Ben Zobrist.

A's would be dangerous lol
I doubt they trade Zobrist though

I think we're probably gonna trade Crisp also..I liked Crisp a lot and would rather keep him but Young is as good if not better than Crisp
