Game Thread (?) 40

Tonight we have a televised! rematch of the 1913 World Series between the A’s and Giants. I am not among the skilled few who are able to conjure gameday during Spring Training so I don’t know the lineups, but it’s Cahill vs. Lincecum. I’m guessing that Slappy “Red” Cabrera will be in the #2 spot. ...

THT has a look at Matt Weiters and finds a beef with PECOTA: These translations, similar to Major League Equivalencies, are just as robust looking as the projection itself. The card gives us a translated batting line of .301/.396/.513 for his High-A performance, and a translated batting line of .349/.436/.627 for his Double-A—and yes, you ...

DLD 4/1/09: alien snuggies and verse from a not-so beautiful mind 158

1. A Wolff and Dellums powwow is set for mid-April. Marine Layer has yet to weigh in, but I think this quote provides the nuance and insight we’re looking for here is a quote I think usefully describes the conundrum [edited to eschew unbecoming passive-aggressive derision]: “I’d love to see them stay in the city ...

When Sheffield arrived at the Tigers’ clubhouse Tuesday, he knew something was up. “People were looking at me funny,” he said. Teammates or staff? “Staff,” he said. That’s because teammates didn’t know yet that Sheffield was about to be released. When ...

Slusser breaks news The press release Marine Layer weighs in (and I endorse this sentiment): this is actually an official “let’s delineate all the ways Oakland no longer works” committee

Looks like the A’s won the big trade, with Holliday and others knocking Greg Smith around. I like Greg, but it seems like he could be in for some trouble in Colorado… From Slusser: Travis Buck made a trip to the emergency room Sunday morning because his left ear was plugged, and after a case ...


Um … why does this make me feel uncomfortable? He comes off almost as a dilettante who wants to move out of his old neighborhood but wants the new neighborhood to come to him.

What are the problems? What’s not working? What could be improved? And … who here can do anything about it? Remember, we’re all admins (though it seems as though wp’s “must be logged in to comment” applies to wp users, not registered KRAUThors), so … if there’s something you can fix/improve — go for it.

The Larry Davis line 15

So what’s the over/under for combined number of games played (for the A’s) in ’09 by Chavez, Ellis, Duke, Devine, Buck, and Holliday? I’m laying down a� typically pessimistic marker at … 250.
