DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Josh Reddick? Is he over his head? Should the A's extend him? Does his hair qualify as a mullet under international mullet specifications?
(mattymatty2000 from Portland, OR)
The unfortunate thing about a player excelling from the moment he's traded to your team is that you haven't really paid attention to him before the trade. If Jermaine Mitchell came up from Sacramento to the big leagues and hit like Reddick has hit, I'd say "no, he's over his head" because I've followed his career a little bit for a few years. (Also because he's 27 and has a .258 TAv in AAA.) With Reddick, who knows. He has an amazing ability to foul off pitches that he has no business swinging at, which is certainly one way to go about having at-bats.

I refuse to issue a ruling on his hair because if he's got a mullet, then I'm awfully close. (Jason Wojciechowski)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Any room for Jermaine Mitchell to get 350 ABs in Oakland?
(Abe Froman from Chicago)
Hey Abe, sorry you got left out of the new Ferris Bueller Super Bowl commercial. Life is so unfair.

Anyway, Mitchell has put up some pretty solid minor league numbers, but he's always been a bit old for his league and isn't exactly at prime prospect age anymore. Plus, the A's acquired a bunch of OF's this year and will give them all first dibs at the playing time: Crisp, Reddick, Cowgill, Smith, etc. Mitchell will have to wait his turn, so 350 AB's seems very unlikely barring a wave of injuries.
