A nice, warm, easy feeling

For the first time in a while as an A's fan, I feel extremely at ease and excited (as always) about what might happen this offseason. After this signing of Loaiza (which i commend) and reading the subsequent articles, it's been made clear that the purse strings are definitely a little looser, and ownership (including Beane) is committed to winning NOW. It seems like Beane is not only hoping to acquire the big bat we so desperately need to take it to the next step, he expects too. It also seems like Mr. Wolff won't let budget constraints stand in his way. And here's to hoping this feeling will intensify once Barry is extended and some slugger is standing in the DH slot come ST. What are your feelings on the upcoming months.
