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.
Barton came up and got 2 Rbi's. Weird.

lmao
Not great yet, but the offense as a whole has picked up the last week. More concerned about getting the starting pitching figured out at this point.

And Barton looked like a better hitter than I remember in his approach and results last night. Maybe he's finally figured it out to be a contributor?

Colon
Gray

Yes. 5 innings played, A's in the lead. We got a 7 inning win in Boston earlier this year.

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.
