Enough "Moneyball." It's time the A's stop being a major league training grounds for pitchers. Spend some money and keep them. They keep trying to save money by bringing up minor leaguers and paying them minimum salaries, or signing "Over the Hill" position players at low salaries, all for the sake of "Moneyball."
It's no wonder they can't attract fans. Quit getting ride of the quality pitchers and spend some money to sign a couple of infielders, such as good first and third basemen, and they might start winning again, and then the fans will return.
A good way to start this entire process, trade someone, trade Beane!
