As I mentioned earlier, Grant wrote twin pieces today for ComcastSportsNet. In each he named the one irreplaceable player on the A’s and Giants. (See the Giants piece in a former post.) Here is his piece on the five most important A’s leading to his conclusion of the one player they absolutely cannot lose. This was a tricky assignment as the A’s don’t really seem interested in winning their division and they trade away all their good players. Nonetheless. To read Grant’s article, please click here.

    Jemile Weeks gets my vote. The kid is electric and is the only player Beane has said is untouchable (for now, anyways.)

    Yep,Jemile. After that….Suzuki was near HOF..signed the big contract,married the hot blond…and went all Zito on us.
    Cespedes? Has also gotten some bad reviews for a hole in his swing. I do have one tip,Since few media seem interested in saying his last name correctly (Bizarrely,Beane couldn’t say his name at all- give him 36 million and couldn’t even say his name??)..I propose it be pronounced Ses-ped-A’s..geddit? Imagine chanting his name like that? I’m a marketing genius!..and none of that cute animal name stuff.

    This must be a joke. To name as #1irreplacable a player who has not yet been to training camp is silly. I guess young Cohn is trying to see if people read his material.
