Firing Bob Melvin? Signing Hanley Ramirez and re-signing Jon Lester?

Ed Zurga

Hey Athletics Nation!

I tell anyone and everyone who will listen that this community is one of the best and most knowledgeable baseball fans around. Alex made his usual weekly appearance on my show and answered some listener’s questions such as;

Is it time for the Athletics to replace Manager Bob Melvin?

Believe it or not but this question was asked of me more this week than any other. I’m not sure if these folks are A’s fans or not but the question is one that is worthy of an answer.

No. The Oakland Athletics should not be looking to replace Bob Melvin now or anytime soon. In my opinion what happened last season wasn’t his fault and I think you will enjoy the answer Alex gave.

We also talked about shortstops and whether or not the A’s should pursue soon to be free agent Hanley Ramirez of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Alex and I had a great discussion about the possibilities including bringing Jed Lowrie back.

Should the Athletics try and resign Free Agent Jon Lester? Alex and I also had a great discussion on this as well.

I’ll definitely be interested in how you guys would answer those questions and as always am looking forward to reading your responses. Alex comes on at about the 39:00 minute mark or so. Prior to Alex the topics were the Chicago Bulls and the World Series. I’ll leave the player below or you can download the show from my site here.
