2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)I've been dying to read what you have to say about the Mark Ellis signing. Good deal for the A's? Is he worth the risk? What is his value given his hitting, defense, age and injury history?
(Scott the Stathead from NY, NY)
Lamentably, the A's were one of two teams I didn't get to in the article that's about to be published, but I expect to comment on their moves (Joe Dillon is free!) and the Blue Jays' after we wrap up here. But to be terse (by my standards), the word that sums up my feelings on keeping Ellis is 'resigned' (as opposed to 're-signed'). OK, we kept him, and in the long and unhappy history of second base in A's history, Ellis is sort of our generation's Dick Green, a nifty player, but not a great one. For that money, it's not a great deal, and given that it's spread out evenly, this isn't even a situation like Terrence Long's contract, where we can always hope Billy gets somebody else to pick up the heavy back end of the tab. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please put your GM hat on for a moment....okay....you're the GM of a club needing a RH power bat. Dave Dombrowski is offering up Marcus Thames. What is the right price to pay for Thames? Thanks!
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
A Grade C pitching prospect or an organizational soldier with some possibility of making it as a big-league bench player, nothing more. I could offer less to the Brewers for Joe Dillon, and I'd get a more generally utile guy who can still give me the right-handed pop; maybe they can be guilted into letting the old-timer catch a break.

Finding a good hat's never easy, and they've been out of fashion for women almost as long as they have been for men. It's a pity, because I was a hat-wearing kid, and I've got a few to this day, but it just never seems like the right opportunity. (Christina Kahrl)
