DateQuestionAnswer
2011-04-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the A's start off slowly this season, do you think Bob Geren will be on the hot seat?
(Tom from Madison)
I suppose it's possible, but I've always thought Geren was well-regarded in Oakland. Furthermore, the A's have never made a midseason managerial move on Billy Beane's watch, and haven't done so since 1986, coincidentally the only year that Beane got more than 82 PA at the major league level. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Bob Geren ever going to give me a legitimate shot to be a full-time starter? Am I a starter or just a fourth outfielder?
(Travis Buck from The Bench)
I'd rather see you playing more, but let's just say that it's very much a pity that you can't really play center. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)My five year-old son was getting autographs at last night's Snappers-Loons game in Beloit. He only got three sigs from Loons' players, but one of them was Bryan Morris, who had been traded to the Pirates about six hours earlier. It's funny how my son just randomly dumb-lucks his way into meeting this kid who may never be any more famous than he is right now! BTW, what are the prospects of Morris being more than just a footnote in the Ramirez trade? Thanks.
(jlebeck66 from WI)
As somebody who grew up in a Triple-A city (Salt Lake City) and spent a great deal of time in a Single-A one (Walla Walla), I saw a lot of minor-league baseball as a kid, and I still cherish those memories and the random luck of seeing the likes of famous (Tony Gwynn in A-ball, on the same team as John Kruk no less) and infamous (floppy former overall #1 Al Chambers). The only foul ball I ever retrieved was autographed by Bob Geren, who a quarter-century later became the manager of the A's. So I can relate. Tell the kid to hold onto those autographs.

As for Morris' chances of being more than a footnote, he certainly looks pretty good on paper; his numbers are about as good as you could hope for a guy coming back from Tommy John surgery. His upside, from what I can tell, is as a mid-rotation starter or possibly a late-inning reliever. You could do worse when it comes to putting your money on an A-ball pitcher. (Jay Jaffe)
