Bottomline they either need to get a new stadium in Oakland, move to San Jose, or relocate entirely. That stadium is unsuitable for baseball and puts them at a competitive disadvantage.
Agreed 100%. I completely understand, being a Rays fan and living in Tampa, what it feels like to have a crap stadium and it be in a horrible location. This is great news for the A's!

That next waive of pitching will be something to watch.

I'm a fan of Billy Beane and what he's done with limited funds. But, there is something that just doesn't sit well that they just cut their already moderate costs in the hopes of a stadium. It's a business and I get that, but that's gotta be so difficult to swallow by A's fans.
Well they just made a substantial investment in Cespedes.

This is incredible. According to Stats, Inc., the previous record (since they began in 1988) was 30 by Tim Wakefield.

30 by Wakefield seems even more ridiculous to me. He has no idea where that pitch is going. How the hell did he ever throw 30 in a row in the strike zone!
Ha that is wild, right? I would have to assume the large majority of those were swinging strikes!

Josh Reddick, who has basically carried the offense, has been scorching hot in July, posting a 316/375/608/983 line. Reddick slammed hard against the out of town scoreboard in right field last night while making the final out of the game on a Markakis fly ball. Reddick was down a while, but eventually walked off on his own accord. It will be interesting to see if he misses any time, and if he does, how the offense will proceed without him in Oakland.
