    • Man I wish I was there to see that perfect game from Braden, my grandma was, and for those of you who don't know who he is, he is actually a really good young pitcher in the young pitching staff of the Athletics. Braden doesn't have overpowering stuff (his fast ball tops out around 91 mph) but he has very good control on his slider, cutter and breaking ball, he has an amazing screw ball that he doesn't use much because it caused an injury and an utterly fantastic change-up. That rotation might rival Zito, Harden and Hudson (perhaps even toss in Haren?) after Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill, Dallas Braden and Brett Anderson develop and if I'm not mistaken they have a couple other good prospects like Tyson Ross, Vin Mazzaro and Pedro Figueroa along with a top notch young closer in Andrew Bailey. There is no shortage of good young pitching in the Athletics organization.

      Also since all you A's fans are here now, any idea when Chris Carter and Michael Taylor might be called up? Any updates on Grant Green and Jemile Weeks?

        Carter and Taylor could be up this season, not sure when. Probably depends on how well the A's are playing and how well Carter/Taylor are performing. They are slumping a little in AAA right now and I doubt we'd call them up this early anyway. Weeks is playing well in AA while Green is in A ball so we won't see him for a while.

        • Sigh...still waitig for Pujols to light it up. Has not had a HR in like 13 games and is not getting any RBI's. Molina is carrying the team on his back right now, that and good pitching

            Weeks actually just re-injured his hip a few days ago. He is constantly hurting himself lunging for 1st base.

            Oldie but a goodie.

              • No one was expecting Dallas Braden to punk out A-rod that hard.

                      No, I just posted the link because the draft is coming up and noone has to make a thread because I did.

                      Oh, and the Pirates are going to beat the Reds again tonight. :D

                        why do you expect us to just give them to you again?

                        • So....Beckett and Javier Vazquez just got dropped in my league. Should I drop Tim Hudson or Trevor Hoffman for one of them?

                            Tonight's nationally televised game between Detroit and New York on ESPN will feature a heavyweight pitching matchup between Brad Thomas and Sergio Mitre.

                            Wheeeeeeeeee!

                              I would take the chance on Beckett just due to the fact that hes too good to be bad for the whole season lol
