Nice Hermida. Now JD Drew- you overpaid son of a -itch. Lets tie this up
As worthless as he is offensively, he's been ridiculously good defensively. According to UZR he was the second best right fielder last year and so far this year (with a VERY small sample size admittedly) he's been the best defensive outfielder period.
Yea, I know he's got a glove. My expectations for him when we signed him must have been too high 'cause I've been seriously disappointed with him.
Granted- the let down has all been on the offensive side. The injuries urk me as well.

I knew the start of the season wasn't going to last for the A's, but it still doesn't change my disappointment... Headed for another #12-ish draft pick...
When you build a team around pitching and defense and lose your two best starting pitchers it's gonna hurt. If we could stay healthy we might have a chance in the West, but it looks like another year where the A's will have to use the DL a billion times.
I won't even watch anymore when we play the Yankees. It's just comical. We have had about 9 absolutely solid line drives that have been caught that took away a run in this series. I don't understand how one team can be so unlucky against the other on a consistent basis.
