2013 Oakland A's thread

That's true. I really do think we have a shot this year so you're right about getting someone decent in there. I hope so about Weeks as well. Just hope IF he gets that chance again he takes off like he did back in 2011

Ya, 2011 Weeks was so fun to watch. Hitting well in AAA so we can't completely give up on him, right? :)

We better not! Speaking of which I need to hit up a Rivercats game again!
The A's are so excited about getting Callaspo that they have decided to completely stop playing tonight to move on to tomorrow.
Callaspo is a good move. Gets rid of Rosales for good (error tonight ) and gives us a backup at 3rd for Donaldson to get an occasional day off. Sogard is utility SS/2B.

Green is probably a year away. Seems like Beane wasnt thrilled with his initial MLB performance, and his defensive conundrum is a tough spot for any team.

And can we PLEASE get rid of Young? Guy Ks or pops up every other at bat.
uhh.....

McCarthy described the events of "Weenie Wednesday," a hot dog giveaway at the stadium. The team was given 50 hot dogs in the clubhouse, and that's when the naked duo of Callaspo and Aybar had some locker room fun:

Suddenly Callaspo took one of the hot dogs out of its bun and deep-throated it. Then he took the bun and put it around Aybar's flaccid penis and poured ketchup on it. Jaws dropped–Aybar was a willing participant. Then Callaspo bent over and pretended to eat the Dominican penis hot dog. When he did that, we all screamed "Noooo!"

I see your a smart guy like me, A's fan the locker room hotdog is if true, sounds made up
He can eat all the penis dogs he wants - as long as he hits and plays decent defense.

Who's this dude the angels are getting back? Callaspo is actually pretty decent

He's a young dude, good hitter in the minors but a terrible fielder, so bad that the A's moved him all over the field at different positions last year to see where he could field the best, then kept him at 2b this year. He played for the A's for a couple weeks and sucked, didnt get a hit and had a few errors so they sent him down. He has potential but he's getting kinda old to be in AAA, turning 26 soon.
The Angels may be one of the worst teams in baseball. They are HORRIBLE.

they lose in style lol
I can't believe how they lost against the rangers last night. They're sooo bad
Meanwhile in Stockton...

"@ZackBayrouty: Addison Russell with two home runs tonight and an eye-popping defensive play for Stockton. Superstar qualities coming through. #Athletics"



can we just give him a 10 year contract right now? before he demands 20 mill a year
