    I am hoping Contreras makes a leap and is our second catcher. I don't think he will be any worse than Flowers. Rotation is indisputably better. There is still time to add some pen and bench pieces.

    I don't think things are near as bad as some of you guys do. We are going to be really fucking good again.

    A healthy Oz all season would be huge.

    Hopefully Ronnie cuts down on Ks. He still has so much room to grow, which is crazy.

    yeah I have high hopes for both of those guys to make a leap. Ozzie has potential to be a 10 time all star and Acuna has a couple of MVPs in him.

    Very annoyed about the lack of a DH this season. Looks like Soroka would probably start on time if not for that.

    Yeah. This is where we are.

    Real teams are signing actual pieces and we're a REIT first so on the scrap heap hoping to find that balance of cheatest payroll possible while being just competitive enough to keep fans coming to the Battery but at the point we'll never win anything

    3B is dick. We don't have a back up catcher. We don't have a full pen. We're about 40 million below last year's salary.

    We're probably on par with last year, maybe worse, and everyone else got better

    Agreed. I’m ok with our pen but we need one more arm. The Lamb signing is a step in the right direction. I like Kipnis. If Camaralago could not be an absolute bum that would be great. Is Alex Jackson that much worse than TFlow? Worse yes but I don’t have to see TFlow’s dumbass face and his dumbass glasses.

    Lamb was actually good once he joined the A’s in a small sample. He can’t hit lefties but he wasn’t signed to.

    Jason Kipnis is a consummate professional.

    35 seems low.

    I the last two years he's played full seasons he's started 80-90 games. He's 32 now. I'd imagine our back catcher is going to get 50-70 starts
