Sean Doolittle was part of that bottled lightning from 2012-14 where the A’s were serious contenders for the championship. But that time has come and gone and now keeping any player with any trade value would be foolish.

And once again we have to see what’s next for the A’s. Will this new core catch lightning in a bottle again or will this be another lost season?

My moms are begrudgingly living in San Diego as transplants amongst all of the San Diego Padres fans. The team the Athletics will play (and beat) on Pride Night? The San Diego Padres. This night was made for them. In fact I’m starting to suspect that the Athletics focus-grouped this…
