My scouting report & video of Russell. He hit several home runs in BP, including one that probably went 430 feet or so.

The Break Up of the Oakland A's Dynasty, How the Players Fared as Free Agents, and Their Airbrushed 1977 Topps

+

Of the airbrushed cards in this article, from worst to best, I'd rank them: Bando, Baylor, Campy, Rollie, Fury Gene, and Rudi. However, the most embarrassing airbrushing of all-time is Rich McKinney's 1973 card

Offseason suggestions

Hey everybody, this is athleticsperson01 back from the dead, in a symbolic sense that I haven't been talking a lot on AN, recently. Anyways, I wanted to talk to you guys about my debut thread, last year called Mr. October. Mr. October is a thread I made up about the new trade acquisitions the A's got. It pretty much was unnoticeable and I want your opinion. What should I do to improve it? Trust me the name is on the list. Hope my first Fanpost/shot will be in late October/early November. WS win for the green and gold!!!

A’s minor leaguer Vinnie Catricala strikes out on one pitch

Thought this was interesting. Looks to me like everyone overreacted, but the ump definitely went overboard with the quick penalty strikes.

Two Quick game Questions

4

We haven't been to an A's game since moving to Utah, but we have tickets for Saturday's game. We will be staying in Pleasanton and there are four of us. Should we drive or take Bart? Also, I think that's retro shirt day. How early should we be there to get shirts? Thanks for your help! Our kids have been fans for years and I grew up taking BART to see Reggie, Catfish, etc. So we are all pumped.

Even people in Nicaragua are jumping on the A's bandwagon.

kind of... I had a chance to go to the Bosawas Reserve to work with the indigenous tribes there and their hunting dogs (vet student here). It was awesome, and completely remote (2 day canoe ride to the village). It is considered the second largest rainforest in the western hemisphere after the amazon. It's so remote, i was the first asian person they had ever seen. I got a lot of stares and a the nickname "Bruce Lee." And although futbol rules all, they do love their baseball, and play it every sunday in the winter. Since i couldn't help but want to say the a's have fans in Bosawas, I had to give them the shirts i brought down. The guy in the A's tee is named "Erasmo" and he LOVED the shirt. Anyway, just thought i'd share.
