Hmm, I thought the A's would grab Bud Black. At least he's been taken from the Angels, and that was a big reason for the A's to go after him. Maybe they'll sign Hillman from the Rangers. Anyways, good signing by the Pads. Getting Black out of the Angels' hands was a good move no matter who got him.

That's a shame. I was pulling for Dusty. !+)
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

If they get Orel, I am totally fine with this. Hatcher is the Angels problem, why doesn't anyone want him? :-D

Wow, this is a great pick up for the Pads. Bud Black has always been one of my favorite pitching coachs. Good to see he is finally be recognized as a great coach like Maddon.
