    As I asked back in April, How about them A's?  As usual I was right.

    On March 28, the Athletics lost their season opener 3-1 to the Seattle Mariners in Tokyo.

    On April 19, the Athletics won their third straight, 4-2 over the Los Angeles Angels, to move to 7-7 on the year.

    How about that?

    The A's and O's will return to about .500 baseball by the end of September.

    They don't have an Ellsbury and Papi returning to their teams.

    Perhaps, but if Papi walks, we'll have $15M for someone else.

    Trading Ellsbury makes some sense, but it would be to a contender for top prospects. If we are not giving up on this year, that would mean a third team would have to be involved to get the prospects from the other contender, and then we get a player who fills a need for us, hopefull beyond 2013.

    That assumes Jacoby Ellsbury's team makes a qualifying offer of about $12.5 million and that Ellsbury declines.

    According to the WAR salary conversion, Ellsbury has been worth at least $12.5 million in only two of his six MLB seasons:

    If 2012-13 resemble 2009-10 more than 2008 and 2011, a team might be reluctant to make the qualifying offer to a 30-year-old Jacoby Ellsbury.

    Yes, softy pretends he knows all about MLB, but the rules have changed.

    Also, we need to trade him before next year starts for any chance to get comp picks.

    Trading Ellsbury for prospects will probably net us better prospects than the possible comp picks. Those prospects could be dealt for a player with longer team control than Jacoby and who plays a position we need going forward more than OF.

    That sort of makes sense until you tell us the MLB star player is Justin Upton, who right now only hopes to be a star players.  Oh, and the star player you claim the farm has not produced is Jacoby Ellsbury who last year probably had the best single season as centerfielder in Boston Red Sox history.

Lynn was superior in 1975, while Speaker is the best CF'er in MLB history, just to name a few. No average baseball fan in Erstad's generation will remember him, nor will anyone remember goldbrick Ellsbury when his career is over.

    You go girl!  Pleeeeeeeease tell us some scary stories about his reverse pivot swing!!!!!

    I could listen to you sing the same song for days on end, as you are want to do.  Forget that, you could sing the wrong words for a year straight, & we'd all hang on every repetitious word!

    Re: How about them A's!

    Once we trade Jake, who will softy's next target?

    We know he hates CC, but if he became the next Jake, softy would have to call himself a racist.

    We know he hates Lackey, but bringing up his post signing remarks abour being ÖK with the signing, especially with the injury clause included" would be problematic, although full-fledged denialsand flip-flops have not been a problem for the Trotskite.

    We know he hates Aviles, but Mike will probably be our utility IFér next year, and as with Jed, there's just not enough interest to generate discussion, although softy did a pretty good job with hundreds of Wake-bashing threads started over the last few years.

    We know he hates Ross, because he bashed me for supporting us getting him this past winter, and woe and behold the time softy ever admits he was wrong, let alone that someone else was right.

    We know he hates Beckett. We know he hated " ïnEpstien"and now has transfered that hate to Ben. We know he hated fully one-third of our team last year and the year before, but my money goes with...

    We know he hates Salty, and he's the next softy target.

    I was one of Bill Hall's greatest supporters on this site, but when I started a thread on Jed leading the team in Slg% at one point last year, softy called me a racist for showing him that Jed had about the same HR rate as Bill.
     
    He called me a racist for saying that Lugo "was a bust". (It doesn't matter that I married a Mexican woman. I just did that to satisfy some "liberal need to atone for America's past sins".)

    softy has made several racial comments about Jake's heritage.
    softy made several anti-semetic comments, including against fivekatz.
    softy claims anyone being even slightly critical of a black player is a racist, that's why he never criticizes CC, instead, he criticizes InEpstien for signing him-never CC directly.

    The one thing I never understood, was softy's fierce devotion for JD Drew, even though he went to a liberal indoctrination camp..., I mean FSU.

    moon, you are a racist. first of all, you denigrate the Earth by using "moon" in your avatar, and then you have this thing against Slavs and Slaves, not to mention you insult the 1960s with the "59"....damn racist. Also you fiercely defended white guys in Varitek, Wakefield, but you turned right around and criticized the "soft"est player quite possibly in Sox history--CC. Also you're posting on Mondays...sorry, that's a no-no.

    Re: How about them A's!

    Yeah how about dem A's - Reddick, Moss, Crisp, all former Sox hands making an impact with the A's.

    .500 by the end of the year? you all could be right, but this A's team has an outstanding Pitching staff. In addition to that, they hit HR's, and Cespedus has been a huge lift for this team.

    Lets see I predict A's make the play offs this year and you can take that to the bank. If they don't, I'll eat Crow in September.
