wont be surprised at all
you know s**t is bad when Daric Barton is in the line up in late August
This is a joke, right? Dude has cast a spell over Billy Beane, he's harder to kill than Freddy and Jason combined.
Holy crap, he's still around? When I was like 8 my oldest sister was dating a player for the angels AA affiliate and he knew him hahah I think I have his autograph somewhere
Hey, hat's off to the dude's perseverance and he's still able to make a living playing a kid's game, but he's proven he's Triple-A talent at best.. So dammit, one of these days he's going to have to cough up the pics he has of Billy Beane in whatever compromising position because that's the only logical explanation.

Barton was hitting .350 or something the last couple months in AAA, so there's that I guess.
He's been up and down with the A's for about 7-8 years now, something like a career .240 hitter with almost no power, and we're not talking some utility IF/OF, this guy is a 1B. It just isn't common for someone with his paltry CV to be given this many chances with the same club. So okay, .350 over a stretch in AAA, maybe he's figured something out. But lots of guys are Triple-A studs and MLB duds, so I won't hold my breath.
