BILLY BEANE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Oakland A’s & Nashville Sounds 2015 Roster Outlook

GM Billy Beane was a busy boy this offseason For the moment, as we sit here perched on the precipice of February, let’s go out on a limb and assume that the majority of the A’s offseason work is now finally done – which is never an entirely safe bet with general manager Billy Beane at the helm.

Josh Reddick sends great 'Dumb and Dumber' tweet about A's

Josh Reddick just needed to have a little faith in his general manager. The Oakland Athletics have made some head-scratching moves this offseason, most notably trading their star, Josh Donaldson, to the Toronto Blue Jays on Nov. 28.

Here’s more or less what’s happened so far: In Out Taylor Thompson Adam Dunn […]

Three lessons Oakland A’s GM Billy Beane learned the hard way

The Oakland Athletics 2014 season was a tale of two halves. Although the A’s had a 59-36 (.621) record by the All Star Break, they went 29-38 (.433) to close out the regular season. After clinching a postseason bid on the 162nd game with a 4-0 victory over the Texas Rangers, the A’s ended their season with a 9-8 loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Wild Card...

What will the A’s look like in 2015?

The Oakland Athletics are coming off yet another heart-breaking postseason exit, this time at the hands of the Kansas City Royals in an amazing extra-inning Wild Card game loss on Tuesday night. For a team that had expectations to win the World Series throughout the vast majority of the year, the 2014 season has to be nothing less than a downright failure for the team. This is only...
