From Oly Bomb to Oly Gone

I decided to respond to the news that the A’s have traded away Matt Olson with a video on our YouTube channel …

All of the reviews of the prospect package I have seen are agreeing that the A’s Front Office has done very well out of the deal.

Keith Law at The Athletic ($) summed it up thus: “This seems like an incredible return for the A’s for two years of Olson as he comes off what is probably a career year”.

So give credit to Billy Beane, David Forst and the rest of the Front Office for making the best of the situation, but continue to lament our misfortune in having a billionaire owner for whom our team is a mere afterthought to his property development ambitions.

Not a great few days

“How was your weekend”? is a familiar question to be asked on a Monday.

“Not great”, would be the likely answer from A’s fans.
