Sadly, it appears that Reddick is never going to become the player that we expected. His defense will keep him in the lineup this season.
Donaldson only regular who's even sniffing .300. Moss and Cespedes are K machines which wouldn't be so bad if the times they actually do put the bat on the ball they're getting on base and/or driving in runs.
Even though starters and bullpen haven't seemed quite as dominant as last year, still solid and that's carried them...but Colon starting to look like a tired 40-yr old over last couple starts.
So where you were able to figure 3 runs was enough to get a W when he was pitching, maybe now you'll need 4-5.
The shuttle between Sacramento and Oakland is a joke...any position player they call up you can pencil it in dude will not break the Mendoza Line.
Hopefully some of these bats will come alive to take some of the pressure off the pitching, and sure would be nice for starters to pitch with an early lead now and again.
