DLD 12.22.10 - Can I keep the game ball?


I'm venturing away from my normal position of lurking and occasionally interjecting lame one-liners into threads to do a DLD. This is my first attempt, and I fully expect it to be similar to Jeremy Brown's major-league career. But, as Jennifer Tilly said in Let It Ride: "Nothing ventured . . . nothing ventured!" 

Buster Olney says the A's have the third-best pitching rotation in baseball. (Insiders only) Philly #1, SF #2.

At least one blogger likes the A's chances in 2011.

Oakland City Council approved the EIR for baseball park. San Jose snark included!

Honus Wagner card flipped for big bucks by a bunch of nuns.

Preseason college baseball rankings are out. LSJU #10, Cal #33.

MFY and GDRS will pay luxury tax.

From here in the desert: Not the Cubs again!

EMail is for geezers.

And finally, the best response by a sports franchise to a customer ever.

I'll try to do better next time.
