Not at all, the A's are worse this season than last year, they lost Hudson and Mulder, thus getting worse.

Ask what Matt Morris thinks of this... :-?

Not that I disagree with anything you said- in fact, I agree completely.... ;-D


Well Matt Morris could pitch in Yellowstone Park and still allow 30+ HR's per year :-D

So the huge upgrades in the bullpen(Calero, Cruz, Yabu) as well as the addition of Kendall's production over Damian Miller's, and from Scutaro to Ginter at 2B isn't enough of an upgrade to make up for the win shares the A's lost in the Rotation?

Break it down. Dont be a dult. The A's lost 2 very good pitchers, but strengthened themselves consierably in all other area's of the game (defense, offense, bullpen**) and even reloaded the farm adding top prospect Daric Barton. PECOTA has us winning 4 more games above last year (95) Baseball Primer agrees giving us 4 more wins upon 91.

Dont look at a trades face value and come to conclusions, your the same idiot whose been doubting this A team since 2000 when they've lost superstar after superstar.

This A offense hasn't been this good/deep since the 2001 team when Giambi was still here.

The back of the rotation has lots of question marks, im not gauruntee a 100 win team, but this years team is actually projected to do BETTER than last season (using relevant metrics) -- even without the big 3.
