In case you needed another reminder to never believe what a front office lets the public hear, here’s what Billy Beane told Jane Lee of MLB.com just six days ago:
The talent is still there, insists Billy Beane. That’s why the A’s general manager was so patient with a struggling Jemile Weeks last ...

The Oakland A's will be giving out bobbleheads of Coco Crisp this season that do the "Bernie Lean" dance popularized by the team last season.
You’ve seen one bobblehead, you’ve seen them all, right? Wrong. Last year, the Oakland A’s adopted the Bernie Lean as their rally dance. They are still trying to capitalize on the phenomena by releasing a Coco Crisp bobblehead in which Crisp is actually doing the Bernie Lean. It was only natural to make it with Crisp, since he was the one to introduce dance to the team. BREAKING...

It’s very rare that you see the Oakland Athletics make trades that include them sending away impact prospects in order to acquire Major League talent. However, that’s exactly what we saw happen yesterday evening, as Billy Beane decided to trade away Chris Carter, Brad Peacock, and Max Stassi for Jed Lowrie and Fernando Rodriguez.
Coming off being the surprise winner of the American...
The best bobble head ever!
Last season, the Okland A’s rode their laid-back style all the way to an AL West division title and their first playoff appearance since 2006. No team in the league appeared to have more fun down the stretch than the A’s, and it’s one of the main reasons their young roster was able to find so much success.
During their improbable run, Coco Crisp introduced the “Bernie Lean”...

For years the Oakland Athletics have been using tarps to close off sections of the O.co Coliseum stands to reduce capacity. Now, it looks like the Raiders, the stadium’s other tenant, are set to follow suit.
According to The Oakland Tribute and San Francisco Chronicle, the Raiders will use tarps to cover over about 11,000 seats at the Coliseum for next season. Although the Raiders...
