I listed this as a Fan Shot, but got almost no response, so I'm trying this.
I am hosting a fan Q&A with A's assistant GM David Forst on my blog. You can read more details here.
There are instructions there as to how to send your questions (don't simply post them here) and what type of questions are most likely to get good answers. I did this last week with Bobby Evans, the director of player personnel with the Giants, and I got a lot of questions from Giants fans. Don't let them outdo you! I have faith in you AN.
