+

ESPN has selected the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Oakland Athletics matchup on August 24 for it's national "Sunday Night Baseball" game of the week telecast. It will be the A's first "Sunday Night" appearance since 2005. If no starts are skipped between now and then, Jon Lester should take the mound for Oakland that night.

Could The Raiders and Oakland Send A's Packing In 2015?

+

If anyone has any doubts about the lunacy of the Quan Administration, the proof is in this article, where the City of Oakland and the Raiders are planning to tear down the Coliseum... in 2015! If the City of Oakland doesn't ratify the A's lease agreement and continues its plans with the Raiders, the A's may be playing their last season in the Bay Area.

The A's May Know the Way to San José

According to Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle, San José's lawsuit against Major League Baseball will be settled out of court by early 2015 and the A's will start packing their bags.

Losing Russell...the sky may not fall

+

• MLB's Prospects Webpage shows six SSs in the top 30.

• There are 14 prospects listed as SSs on the International Prospects' top 30 list.

• Not all 20 of these prospects will pan out or stick at SS.

• But some will -- they will add to an existing pool of quality SSs.

• Some quality SSs, with experience, are going to become available because of this.

• News flash: supply & demand affect relative costs

• Russell was one SS prospect that some scouts worried would not stick at the position.

• The sky is not nearly falling as fast as the 2014 post season aspirations are rising.

• Cheer up if you're only looking for reasons to be down.

Does this worry anyone else?

Looks like the A's could be out of Oakland, but not to San Jose...

Trade for a SP? (McCarthy?)

+

As well as the team has done, I think I'm far from alone in thinking we'd do well to add a starting pitcher; at the right price, of course. Meanwhile Dave Cameron recently posted a list of players likely to be moved at the deadline. Anybody stand out? I kind of get a suspicion we may trade for McCarthy. Others' thoughts?
