We all know as Athletics fans that we are blessed with a great pitching staff, but we all know that our offense is less than stellar. We have 2 main positions that have to be upgraded and RF.Lets face it’s been a revolving door the last couple of seasons.Ofcourse my vote for right field is Jayson Werth, hits for a solid avg, has pop and takes pitches ala Oakland athletics hitting. But then come the DH issues wich Cust has filled the last couple of seasons, but after last years performance the A's can’t afford 12hrs and expect to contend in the west.
One possible solution is Hideki Matsui, sure he is getting old but isn’t that what the A's love (mike sweeney, mike piazza, thomas, karros, todd walker) But Matsui did hit 274 with 21hrs and 84 rbis, with an ops over 800, last season wich would be a upgrade over a cust.So why not give Godzilla a try he would look great in green.
Another place we could upgrade is at short, personally I like pennington,but it took him forever to find his swing last season, and with the pitching rich system the A's have especially with outman coming back, why not try to Add a bat and not hurt the defense. I figure they could trade Mazzaro,pennington,and a reliever to get Stephen Drew from the Dbacks and maybe they throw in a prospect,.You can put drew virtually any place in the lineup, hits for solid avg and has helluava alot of pop for a short stop not called Tulo.On top of that he has 2 more season till he is a free agent.
So what are your thoughts on this, love it, like it hate it?
