    Yeah, even though it was a preseason game, I'm glad the A's finished up strong against the Giants.

    Take that suckers!

    I didn't get the MLB DirectV package this season. I just sense that this season will be entirely frustrating from the get-go.

    Target #1: Joe Blanton.

    Target #2: Bobby Crosby.

    Target #3: Esteban Loaiza.

    Perform, or ship out.

    Hurt so that he could perform well at defense but not offense?

    Batting average = his weight FTL. :p

    $66 million for defense is overpaying.

    Well, I'll give you his wife. Everytime he talks about his love for the Angels, I want to exhale liquid. As long as he gets back to the .280-35 HR range, I'll be happy.

    And Travis Buck, they say....., is a young Jason Giambi in the making.

    The Barton kid shouldn't be ignored either. He can flat out hit. The power will grow, but he's garnered scout comparisons to Lance Berkman, with a little less power. I've also heard Tony Gwynn too. I'll take that, but we'll see.

    Pitching. Pitching is what concerns me. Marcus MacBeth is the only guy getting any buzz in the system, and I don't think that's a positive thing.

    The A's need to use this draft and their compensation picks and grab some arms, stat.
