Talk About a Major Craphole

No one will spend money to keep the stadium up to par. This is an embarrassment for Oakland. Reminds me of the Orioles spring training issues in Miami. When clubs refused to play us there. The Orioles just stopped fixing stuff and the city just stopped upkeep.

I hope Oakland can get into San Jose and get the new park they want. Maybe they should change their name then to the San Jose Microchips?

Despite Jake Arrieta's complaints, The Ft Lauderdale experience was a lot of fun. The fans and players interacted in a much closer manner. Well, part of that was that Dave Trembley was running a day care. But I digress. Carry on.

Perhaps for the fans, but I've never heard one good thing from a player about Ft. Lauderdale.

As for the A's, Oakland either needs to build a new stadium or they need to move.

Of course. I know the players hated it. I kinda liked it though. I love Sarasota.

This is an honest question, have you had a personal disagreement or problem with Jake Arrieta? It seems like you often go out of your way to criticize him, and emphasize the critiques of others as well. I'm not saying it's undeserved or unwarranted-- especially with respect to his performance on the field (e.g. tonight). But for a poster who is often pretty positive, you seem to make it clear that you have an uncommonly high level of contempt for Arrieta. Just curious if there is any unique reason.

    • I love that we have so many young assets like the OP mentioned. My issue with this framework is that we still need to add a big piece or 2 to add to the core if we are going to contend for a World Series. I don’t see this roster even with all of the young adds next year being able to beat Houston, Seattle, Toronto, Dodgers, Braves, Mets next year in a short series. Don’t get me wrong I am VERY excited to have so many young promising players. But I hope there is a plan to add to this in order to compete for a championship.
    • I'm surprised to hear this from you.  I assume you're inferring how the FO feels?
    • Mountcastle has a long swing and at times swings at just about everything. I don’t think he’s anymore than a mediocre player with an occasional hot streak.
    • At first I didn’t care if Judge got to 62. Now I hope he’s stuck on 61 for the season.    The crying by Yankees fans about how we didn’t groove one so Judge can have the record #%^%#. I’m counting down, 2 games left, I hope Texas walks him 8 times.
    • I agree if we had a stud on the other side that could actually get home. But we don’t, we now have two geriatric NFL players, a guy trying to return from a serious injury, and a rookie that will try to make the jump to the NFL after suffering a serious injury doing draft drills. Man we have a great plan! I swear, you or I could done better than this bunch. Bisciotti needs to fire the whole bunch. They’ve outstayed their value. 
    • Same issue Clowney has.  But pressures and hurries make are still very valuable.
    • I guess it depends on if you think this year or last year is the Real Mountcastle. Last year’s numbers have him as borderline top 10 at the position. I think he’ll be closer to last year and could pop higher year to year. Top 10 1B with elite Catcher and SS/3B and you’ve got a good foundation.
