Retro issues (contraction? salary cap?) with retro attitude. Nice.
Looks like the Giants are bringing up Posey. How does he compare to Maybin (ignoring that fact that it's a bit early for him)?
I definitely think Alderson was the right pitcher to trade (assuming you want to make a playoff push this year, which your paying customers kind of demand when you are within a game or so of the wild card "lead") but I do believe that they could have gotten more in return. Hoping for Adam Dunn and getting Freddy Sanchez (who is on my HACKING MASS team for Pete's sake!) is a bit underwhelming.
Of the position players, I wonder how much struggles on defense can sink offense. Seems like a large number of the disappointments (except for Beltre) either started way to the right on the defensive spectrum, or are struggling at their positions (struggling at C, struggling at 3B, etc.).
I think Wolff's "Northern California" reference is interesting. The A's have a successful minor league operation in Sacramento, and the transportation corridor between the East Bay Area and Sacramento is getting more efficient.
Any evidence that a move to Sacramento is being considered or would be viable?
