2013 Oakland A's thread

How unfair of the A's to bunt for an insurance run in a 3-2 game. What an idiot.

And the offense continues to hibernate like it's January...
Everyone with exception of NerdPower is struggling. Time to get back into gear. Cincy and Toronto are gonna score runs. Our bats have got to wake up.

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.
Dude...we need a spark.

As you just said, it ain't coming from Sacramento. Billy might have to make one of those late waiver wire deals.
This team is burning before our very eyes.

they're terrible.
wtf happened?

Im convinced Reddick is nothing more than a very good defensive player. Dude is terrible with the bat
Cespedes is so disappointing too. He has all the power in the world but he cant make contact

If those 2 and coco crisp dont turn it around we're not winning s**t this season. At least 2 of em need to return to last year's form if we want to win the division

I was seriously hoping they'd trade him after the HR Derby when his popularity/value peaked for a few days. For all that he was touted to be, and he has shown flashes, he's simply just not that good of a player...and it doesn't help that he's as fragile as a china doll. Granted, a few years down the road he might put it all together and be a great player, but by then he'd be on a different team anyway.

That's probably already more hits than Callaspo has with the A's...but I'm sure giving up a young prospect for a 30-something, light-hitting, journeyman utility infielder will end up being well worth it.
Dam it Colon!
I am thinking we have hit rock bottom. Bartolo done after less than 3 innings. Yikes.
wtf is this sh*t
