You think the pet rock was a really great idea?

I think the consensus opinion there would simply be that those guys are just not ready to be at the Major League level on a full-time basis. They'll get their looks in spring, but I think moves like the Harden and McCarthy deals are made in order to let a team avoid having to dip into their farm too early. As stated in the article, I think there's a good chance one of these guys hits the DL for a while next season. Your Landsfords, Storeys and Hernandezs (along with Humber, Magnuson and De Los Santos) will all probably get some call-ups once the injuries begin to pile up. That said, these signings should not be considered disrespect towards the farm guys, but merely a means of easing them into whatever roles the A's have in mind for them in the future.

My memories of Worms Armageddon makes me want to buy a Dreamcast and relive childhood memories.

While I can't say for sure, I believe Wagner's presence on the roster may have something to do with the fact that his $6.5 million option for 2011 was guaranteed upon him reaching the 50 Games Finished plateau during the 2010 season. Wagner was able to finish 64 games last season (good for 3rd in the league), thus his option was exercised. Though the Braves would be foolish to give up on a potential Wagner comeback before it is absolutely necessary, I'd be very surprised if he isn't eventually removed from the roster and placed on the club's Voluntary Retired List.

Yes I do. Expect to see that sometime early next week. Feel free to suggest some hitters that you'd like to see in the next edition!

Thanks for the catch, sir. Our excellent editing team has been made aware of this and we should have that fixed up in no time!

Sounds like someone just read an extremely informative article.

I feel that, given he was offered arbitration, Saito would be getting a raise from his $3.2 mil + incentives deal for 2010. I wouldn't be surprised if he came back to Atlanta, but it would probably be at a cheaper price. That's partially why I felt the Braves would be getting a "win" there.

A decline-and-sign approach would have been interesting, but I'm guessing the weak 2B market would put Ellis in good position to net at least $6 mil and, probably more importantly (to him, at least), a multi-year deal.

It seems as though the A's will be picking up the option on Crisp, thus setting the OF in stone with Carter, Crisp and Sweeney. If anything, the A's will be looking for a DH. With the Sheets and Chavez money coming off the books, I think there will be plenty of cash to at least kick the tires on a Dunn or Berkman this offseason.

Correct. Ellis was never truly a SS option for the A's, whether it was due to the presence of Crosby and Tejada or his shoulder injury. Despite his PT at the position, many sources claim that Ellis would not be able to stay at SS due to the injury. Before the injury, Ellis did see a lot of time at SS with the A's minor league affiliates. This is what I meant by saying Ellis was "originally a shortstop" with the Athletics [organization]. I apologize for the miscommunication.

We actually referenced that study while trying to determine what our course of action will be in terms of methodology. With some of the great data being collected using Pitch F/X, we decided that going with Contact Rates / OOZ Swing % would be the most interesting route.

I was wondering if Utley would get the MVP. That would've been fun. Oh well, maybe next year.

No surprise that you guys picked up Nolasco. I have high hopes for Bradley at $7 and Snider at $2.

Good point. I definitely care about the quality of the info more than if you get quotes or not.

I agree. I think a one-sentence quote from a scout for each prospect would be awesome.
