Switch Hitting Power in Oakland

Man, I can't wait until spring. The Oakland A's finally added some (switch hitting) right handed power by trading for Milton Bradley and are still in the running for the big hurt, Frank Thomas.

This off-season is showing that the new ownership is serious about winning and is willing to open up the pocketbook a bit to give us the pieces to make a run in 2006.

I just hope that the residents of the East Bay show their appreciation and show up at the coliseum to cheer the A's on. Sure the building sucks, but we have a top-notch team with a great approach to the game.

In keeping with tradition, here's my homemade Memeorandum-style entry on the subject:
