What is it about the A'th?


Recommended Posts

That takes either decent prospects or slumping in 2014 vets like Billy Butler, and makes them into a really good team?

Is it more on Bob Melvin? The other coaches?

Players renewed getting a new start with a new org?

Billy Butler looked to be in a vast decline in 2014.

All I know is, this has been going on for 3+ years now.

its gone on alot longer than 3 yrs...

the management puts a santeria like voodoo curse on the players with the help of thier wierdo fans. but seriously,  look at coco crisp- that guy was on his way out of baseball prior to coming there. once there he plays like the second coming of ricky henderson. its disgusting.

When he actually is on the field, which is very rare.

 

I think the A's have really good scouting, they are able to see where players are struggling, and if they think that those problems can be fixed, they target those players.

 

Butler is the kind of player Beane has always liked...he gets on base a lot.

Good point SB, although the early-mid 2000s A'th had a better collection of talent with Giambi, Tejada, Chavez, Mulder, Hudson, Zito, etc.

Those teams did have the ultimate unexpected contributor in Scott Hatteberg.

They fell back after 2006, not to be seen again until 2012.

Yeah, but if you recall Moneyball, Hatteberg was actually Giambi's replacement at first because Giambi, Tejada, etc were free agents after 2001.
