Cabrera signs with A's

Recommended Posts

Crosby becomes one overpaid backup. He'll get traded.

Do you think we might show some interest? If the A's would take on some of his contract he wouldn't be a bad option if he could also play 3B and 2B along with SS.


I don't see how Crosby is a good option. He's a pretty good defender but he's nothing special. And his highest OBP over the last 3 years was 2006 (.298) and his highest OPS in the last 3 years was last year (.645). His away OPS's over the last 3 years were .644, .588, and .603. Plus, we still wouldn't be sure that he could play 2nd and 3rd well as he hasn't had any experience there. He just isn't the same player that he was early in his career.

Nice signing, wish Hendry would have made it.


Now that the season is starting, the Theriot hate will decline slightly.


But I do like the A's a lot in the AL West. Giambi, Cabrera, Nomar, Holliday is a solid offseason. Their SP is very ?able but their bullpen could be sneaky good. They need to get lucky on injuries though. All in all I would say they fall a bit short, but liking them to improve significantly.
