I guess you could say this is the PREQUEL to PortlandPachyderm's "The Hand We've Been Dealt" FanShot about a month ago... http://www.athleticsnation.com/2009/6/3/897893/the-hand-weve-been-dealt-may-be Portland, you said you wanted to do something like this when we had the original "Big Three" but didn't get around to it... Funny you should mention that. I was inspired by an article about Rich Harden, stating that his stuff was good enough to call the A's pitchers "The Four Aces." http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qn4176/is_20030722/ai_n14557441/ It is funny, though, how history repeats itself. I can't wait to see what happens next year, if we're able to hang onto all four of our current "Four Aces." ...oh yeah, and Justin Duchscherer too.
