Beane's latest moves testing faith

Like most of you, I believe Billy Beane knows what he is doing.  He's a genious -- except for the Hudson trade, right? Even that deal might turn out with Meyer now in Oakland and Hudson's career in jeapardy due to elbow injury.

Still it's hard to stomach that the A's had a pretty nice season going midway before he continued blowing up the team.  The A's have quickly become the most unwatchable team in majors.

Recent trades make no sense.  No top prospects.  I mean how many 2nd basemen do the A's need? Murton, Patterson -- these are not hot young prospects.  This whole quantity over quality is difficult  to believe in.  Is he just throwing a bunch of slop against the wall and hoping some of it sticks? 

I've been thropugh lean years with Mitchell Page, Wayne Gross and Dave Kingman -- those teams sucked, but they scored some runs and were entertaining.  If the A's are going to stink for a few years I say move in the fences and load up the line-up with all-bat no glove guys.  At least entertain us. 

In the end Beane's plan will probably work out, but it's not fun right now.
