Deadline Grill 218

Seems to me that the A’s have 3 assets (Gray, Madson, Lowrie) that are almost assuredly gone. Difficult to speculate on what Madson and Lowrie can get but Gray’s baseline is more or less established by the Quintana trade (one top 10 prospect, one top 100, 2 interesting fillers) Latest from Rosenthal: Source confirms: #Cubs ...

How Is It Still Spring Training Thread 315

As the Cactus league plods to its eventual conclusion, it’s time to play hide the starting pitchers. One night suppose that the A's prefer not to have the Angels see Raul Alcantara today. Alcantara is getting in his work in minor-league game — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) March 28, 2017 So while the A's are having ...

A Grill, a Bowl, and Thou 344

New Year a la plancha 328

Let’s start with the obvious. It is generally agreed that 2016 was a Bad Year (not just for the A’s hitters. Or for that matter the A’s pitchers.) It started out kind of blah, continued as if enveloped in a permanent miasma, and ended in disaster both too obvious and too depressing to talk about ...

Lounge: The Reboot 251

2016 hasn’t been a great year and the future feels uncertain. It’s hard to find a lot of good news coming out of this year but we did have some good things like the fact I didn’t post anything for ten months. So, here’s a new lounge to look on the bright side of things ...
