DLD 5/24/10 I just wanted to get this link in


It is a busy day for me, but I wanted to get a link posted, so I will create a makeshift DLD.

 

Who said the A's can't draft?

 

Who've been the best drafters of the decade?

A's, D-backs, Red Sox, Nats and Phils have fared well

 

Kubota's point about quick-to-the-big-leauges drafting limiting the number of impact players seems to have some validity. For much of the decade, the A's have been a very college-heavy team in the Draft. As a result, they've gotten many players up to the Majors but have just the three Rookies of the Year, one All-Star (Bailey) and one Silver Slugger (Andre Ethier, with the Dodgers) from the 10 years of drafting. There also is some pragmatism that comes into play.

 

 

 

Oh yeah, the A's swept some team in Orange and Black

 

 

The Giants moved Andres Torres into the leadoff spot and dropped Aaron Rowand to No. 6 on Sunday in hopes of breathing life into a sputtering offense. Then they were shut out for the second consecutive time, 3-0, and swept by the A's in the three-game series at the Coliseum.
