When do A’s start unloading players like Sonny Gray and perhaps Reddick for a “future” that never comes?
I think it’s overdue. Please, Billy and Lew, sell the team. This is a tired, tired act in 2016. The Giants are run the right way and are in it every year. The A’s cash their revenue sharing checks and sell out their fans every year.
Have to feel the pain for the players, coaches and manager who show up to the park to work everyday fully knowing that they are in a position of futility due to poor front office vision and direction. Only hope for the players ever to get to a contender is to do well so they can be traded or to play out contract and shop the FA market. Donaldson probably got the last laugh yesterday and is thankful he is with the Blue Jays and an All-Star. Cespedes also got a break to be able to get out of town and was an All-Star, though injured.
Must be so hard to be a multi-millionaire (or hundred-thousandaire)…those poor men.
