Rosterbation Sensation Grill 192

Here’s my presumptive, scribbled on a napkin, 25 heading into Spring Training: Rotation: Graveman, Manaea, Mengden, Triggs, Bassitt Pen: Treinen, Petit, Pagan, Buchter, Hendricks, Dull, Coulombe Catchers: Maxwell, Phegley Infielders: Olson, Lowrie, Semien, Chapman, Pinder Outfielders: Joyce, Fowler, Piscotty, Powell DH: Davis Miscellaneous: Nunez I’m sure I forgot someone and/or assumed a player has an ...

Down at the Angela Sun-set Grill 285

Many of these remaining free agents dominoes should fall in the next couple weeks, and I’m sure Jed Lowrie is checking his text messages many times a day to see if he’s still an Oakland Athletic. Kendall Graveman is the remaining arb-eligible Athletic who hasn’t settled. I think they can work this one out. kendall ...

Happy New Grill 305

This Jeff Pearlman anti-Bonds screed in The Athletic is a little nutso. There aren’t enough ways to argue against Bonds’ enshrinement without first wrapping your white self in Hank Aaron’s struggle? And, just, this writing… This is what it was to be a black man in America. This is what it was to be a ...

Winter Meetings Grill 266

The Winter Meetings start today. Beane and Forst are still hunting outfielders. Slusser posits that Lowrie is the A’s most likely trade chip. Eno Sarris thinks the A’s should sign Jay Bruce, who he says is not Billy Butler. In stadium non-news, Matier and Ross have Dave Kaval blowing off Scott McKibben regarding restarting Coliseum ...

November post season Grill 285

season is over, Yay for Josh. Fuck you tyler and Luke. But josh, just…no. Can’t take photos in the clubhouse but rest assured Reddick has the Stars and Stripes Speedo on again and it’s still a little disturbing. — Alyson Footer (@alysonfooter) November 2, 2017 First order of business, Justin upton signs extension with the ...

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 ...

ST GT #2: It’s always Sonny in Dr. Andrews’ office 401

With under three weeks left in Arizona, the A’s remain hot on the heels of the league-leading Angels in the chase for the Cactus League championship. Tonight’s game in Surprise is available on MLB.tv (Royals telecast). It’s highlighted by Mark Canha’s annual March appearance as a starting center fielder. It’s a good chance to preview ...
