Bottomline they either need to get a new stadium in Oakland, move to San Jose, or relocate entirely. That stadium is unsuitable for baseball and puts them at a competitive disadvantage.
Agreed 100%. I completely understand, being a Rays fan and living in Tampa, what it feels like to have a crap stadium and it be in a horrible location. This is great news for the A's!

I'm a fan of Billy Beane and what he's done with limited funds. But, there is something that just doesn't sit well that they just cut their already moderate costs in the hopes of a stadium. It's a business and I get that, but that's gotta be so difficult to swallow by A's fans.
Well they just made a substantial investment in Cespedes.

30 by Wakefield seems even more ridiculous to me. He has no idea where that pitch is going. How the hell did he ever throw 30 in a row in the strike zone!
Ha that is wild, right? I would have to assume the large majority of those were swinging strikes!

26th on-base %
22nd slugging %

Josh Reddick, who has basically carried the offense, has been scorching hot in July, posting a 316/375/608/983 line. Reddick slammed hard against the out of town scoreboard in right field last night while making the final out of the game on a Markakis fly ball. Reddick was down a while, but eventually walked off on his own accord. It will be interesting to see if he misses any time, and if he does, how the offense will proceed without him in Oakland.
"You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the damn plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all." ~ The Earl of Baltimore
