where are the former A's now? - April edition
OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: where are the former A's now? - April edition
Greg Myers got called up to be the backup for Greg aun in Toronto. They also sent Justin Miller to AAA.
Chris Singleton, after not playing much last year, and getting pretty sick, is back with the Devil Rays - he started in CF since their CF got caught using roids!
anyone got any more news on former A's?
Canseco wrote a tell-all book and Big Mac got busted in front of a congressional panel.

Ben Grieve is starting the year in AAA!

"Ben Grieve is starting the year in AAA!"
Did some team pick him up? The last thing that I saw last week, after he had been sent down by Pittsburgh, was that he had been released a few days later.
He probably has a new job as a scarecrow (no movement involved).

On a downer note, Terry Francona was taken to the hospital this morning with tightness in the chest.
| By samk on Wednesday, April 06, 2005 - 03:39 pm:|
Matt Stairs and Mark Teahen (technically not an ex-A) are starting for KC. Kevin Appier was released/retired.
Olmedo Saenz is in at 1B for the Dodgers, and (fear) Mecir is pitchin' for one of the FL teams. How 'bout Bonderman - strikes out 5 of the first 6 to open the season....
And Koch is gonna ride his skiboat and make 'em pay.......
Grieve was picked up by the Cubbies & was assigned AAA
| By oakfan on Wednesday, April 06, 2005 - 09:34 pm:|
Check out Saenz going 3 for 3 with 3 RBI's against the Phone Co. tonight.

Mike Gallego is the 3rd Base / infield coach for The Rockies.
Rickey's playin for Rickey.
| By kevink on Thursday, April 07, 2005 - 09:33 am:|
Rickey may play for Newark AGAIN:
From Rotonews in February 2005:
Free agent Rickey Henderson is still hoping for an invite to spring training from some team, preferably the A's.
It doesn't look like it's going to happen. Henderson, who turned 46 in December, might play for the independent Newark Bears again this year.

Art Rhodes is in line for an extra inning win. Indians just scored 2. Rhodes just pitched 2 shutout innings for them. More ex-A's coaching, Rob Picciolo and Davey Lopes for the Padres. Anyone hear about Mitchell Page since after the World Series?
| By oakchick on Thursday, April 07, 2005 - 07:28 pm:|
Jason Grabowski is still much maligned in LA. He's now the Dodgers' Frankie Menechino.
| By eyleenn on Thursday, April 07, 2005 - 08:33 pm:|
Didn't he hit a HR last night?
| By oakchick on Friday, April 08, 2005 - 11:20 am:|
You mean jason? not that I know of....

Mulder 2 innings, 3 hits, 1 earned run, 2 runs, 1 k, 1 walk, in progress 35 pitches 22 strikes
Mulder 3 innings 4 runs, 3 earned
| By jeffreyb on Saturday, April 09, 2005 - 09:59 am:|
Mark Mulder had a mediocre debut with the Cards, allowing five runs -- four earned -- and nine hits in six innings. He finished poorly for Oakland last season, going 0-4 with a 7.27 ERA in his last seven starts, and wasn't any better Friday, walking four and striking out just three.
| By oakland_j on Saturday, April 09, 2005 - 10:22 am:|
Not surprised. Mulder's career numbers away from the Coliseum aren't very impressive.
| By pachyderm on Saturday, April 09, 2005 - 10:25 am:|
Don't the Cardinals beat the other former Athletic Cory Lidle of the Phillies?
former A's all over MLB!!!!!
wonder what Mark Redman's been up to?
| By jenmed on Saturday, April 09, 2005 - 03:45 pm:|
Redman pitched 6 scoreless innings (4 hits, 3 SO's, 1 walk) in Pittsburgh's loss to the Pads on Thursday. So, he's continuing his tradition of pitching well away from the Coliseum. :-)
| By oakchick on Saturday, April 09, 2005 - 07:25 pm:|
Ted Lilly is on the DL and makes his first start against the Bosox.
Steve Sparks is now pitching for the Beavers(AAA Padres)
I enjoy knuckleballers and hope that up-and-coming k-baller Charlie Zink will make the bigs, as Wakefield and Sparks are getting very old, and probably are going to retire in the next few years. It's an old school pitch (just like the screwball) and it would really bum me out it it became extinct.

From Rotoworld.com on T.Long:
Terrence Long went 0-for-3 and flew out with runners on second and third and the Royals down by one run to end today's game against the White Sox.
Long is batting .233/.273/.356. It's pretty hard to believe he's a regular corner outfielder in the major leagues. May. 5 - 6:02 pm et

campy is waiting for a phone call from cooperstown.

well chris hammond is playin for the pads is 3-1 with 1.12 era , only makin 750k so why did we not resign him?
| By asch on Friday, May 06, 2005 - 08:30 am:|
Cause Beane wanted to see you write that post.

Randy Velarde is runnin' a Dude Ranch out in West Texas.
| By ivorygums on Friday, May 06, 2005 - 01:43 pm:|
John Halama just had a good outing for the Redsox the other night, didn't he?
What a bum.
| By kkdaz on Friday, May 06, 2005 - 03:29 pm:|
Jose Guillen batting .327 for the Nationals.
| By washfan on Friday, May 06, 2005 - 10:19 pm:|
Don't get SactoD started!
if i wasn't on this board it would be so borrrring with all of you A's kisss assses praising Beane and talking the 88 win trash talk (as if we didn't lose 2 of the games best pitchers) all season long.
i am the reality check this board needs.
most of you are on crack
sacto, boring or not boring, be nice or there's going to be a thread for the ex-posters to read about the ex-players at the off-field matters...
sal fasano smacked a DEEP HR (2nd of the season) for Baltimore tonight!
| By rocket on Tuesday, May 17, 2005 - 09:57 pm:|
Fasano has tremendous power, has hit some really
long home runs. But he seldom makes solid contact,
thus he has shuffled from team to team, as a veteran back up catcher.

Didn't Sal put one through the eastside suites once against the gnats?
yup, he broke a window! that was the only bright spot for us that day, as the gnats hammered us. sal was just pointing the way to the trophy case for them!
