Just got to thinking today. Will we ever have a "Superstar" for more than 3-4 years? I mean if we are fortunate to produce a Pujols like player from our farm system. I figure year number one would would be a learning year while being pretty good. Year two he becomes a very good player. Year three he a 300/380/550 type hitter. Now we have 3 years left of arbitration before hes a FA. And I figure if Beane knows he cant sign him, he will trade him in years 5 or 6, or just let him walk like Tejada or Zito did.
So.. in this hypotetical situation do any of you see a big name player fans can hang their hats on in Oakland? Does revenue sharing/luxurey tax help us at all? Does a new stadium help us? Or are we just small market and should get used to turn over ever 6-7 years. I for one know Im getting sick of all our great players wearing other uniforms.
