2009-04-10 16:30:00 (link to chat)Hey CK! Just counting down hours until my flight up to Oakland for Opening Night. So far this season, A's hitters seem to really be focusing on going up the middle and to the opposite field. Is this early-season noise, or a product of new hitting coach Jim Skaalen?
(ashitaka from long beach, ca)
Hope you have a great time at the ballpark; I know it's not really the same thing now that the Coliseum's been mauled beyond recognition, but I sort of feel about the A's home park the way some Mets fans feel about Shea--sure, it's a pit, but it's *our* pit.

I don't think we can put this on Skaalen just yet; this isn't quite like Rick Burleson jumping on Mark McGwire to hit singles to right, and getting the single worst season of Mac's career for his troubles. It's important to keep in mind the talent that's on this year's roster, never mind that we don't have Emil Brown to kick around any more. Adding hitters like Orlando Cabrera and Nomar Garciaparra gives you a lineup with people who put the ball in play a lot more often than those of us who still treasure the memories of watching Olmedo Saenz or Matt Stairs or Ben Grieve (at his best) taking their cuts. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)How do you see the A's outfield situation shaking out next year? Even with Emil Brown finally gone, they have a surplus of players and no clear-cut options between Sweeney, Buck, Gonzalez, Cunningham, Denorfia, Murton, Patterson and Raj Davis. Carrying more than four of those guys on the 25-man seems a bit superfluous with Cust still on board.
(John from SF)
Well, in the immortal words of "Sesame Street," some of these things are not like the others. I just don't have any expectations of Sweeney ever developing power, and Denorfia and Murton and Davis are all just filler. The A's apparently still harbor a willingness to see Patterson as a sometime second baseman, which makes a huge difference in his value. I think this really boils down to Buck, Gonzalez, and Cunningham, with the other guys mixing in only as long as elements of that trio are injured and/or unready. (Christina Kahrl)
