Questions for Athletics Nation


Whats up A's nation?! Got a few questions for you guys...

#1 Why is Addison Russell projected to be a star? From what I see, his numbers are meh......(not that impressive) and I haven't really seen anything for me to feel otherwise. Can someone just gimme the breakdown on what this dude's ceiling is, and why he is projected so high. I feel like I'm good at evaluating big league talent since I watch/listen to as many games as possible, yet know jacks*** about this guy except for his numbers and select youtube videos (most of which are him striking out since he seems to do that a lot). Are you guys actually watching this guy? Like seeing every ground ball he fields watching? Seeing every swing watching? Like seriously peepin some AA baseball? And for those select few who are, what's up with this dude?

#2 Whats up with Koooooouzzzz?? I feel like its this A's nation inside joke that I'm not in on. For instance, there will be an awesome post about something super relevant to this year's A's and one of the first reply's will be Koooooooouuuz followed by 3-5 replies.

#3 Gamblers, I've bet the over on the A's projected wins for the last two seasons. Last year I got a line for over'under 84 wins which I immediately dropped 500 on knowing the A's would easily win over 84 games last year. This year the lines I'm looking at are at 89. Do you take the over, or the under? Why?

#4 Lastly......... Predictions for breakout player, and disappointment

Thanks
