James BlazinTo the A's upper office tell Bean to quit trading our good players and keeping the sucky ones. You cannot win games if your players can't hit nor catch well. You goofed in trading Cespedes. DON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!!!

Anthony VinajaDon’t try to add just young players Forst, we also need players who has been in the league who can hit home runs and close out the games strong. Don’t get me wrong I love watching rookies’ debuts but I also love watching veterans knock the ball out of the park and striking their opponents out from left to right.

Neil JonesWhen upper management takes fans seriously, and does not develop players only to trade them later, I may consider. Not even Charlie Finley let the Athletics finish last three years in a row. The owners have the money I am sure, but they are too cheap.
