Giving Bob Melvin the extension is a great sign for the A’s organization. The manager was voted the best last year and took the team to a miraculous AL West title run. Also, the players seem to really like him.
What makes this even better is that the A’s have a foundation for success and locking up the manager through 2016 just shows that the A’s are looking to keep that foundation in place and build a winner in Oakland.
Now with this stability, I hope the A’s will continue their success with the youngsters on the team and build a championship team this year and the years following. Melvin is a very intelligent manager and he’s the perfect man for this job. Great move all around for the organization.
