It was after one the meanest(and funniest) predictions in the history of baseball, IMO, that the A's turned it around a few years back.
Sam's prediction on Up & In... had me worried I may never see an A's playoff game again... that I may even die(I was paranoid for the first half of the season after THE prediction) in the near future! At least a percentage of A's fan would before they made the playoffs again.
I believe It wasn't Beane's many "suspect" moves at the time that did the trick, but it was actually Sam's BOLD prediction.
So please Sam... be meaner next time.
After all these "suspect" moves by Beane, A's fan may need may need you to be.
