Have they said who was sent down? I'd assume Clark who had no role and I have no idea why they called him up for Swisher in the first place. Thomas would be the only other option.

Good news: Harden's injury not thought to be serious and Crosby is back within two weeks, so he says.

Bad news: The A's are still horrible.

Not a great debut.

0-4, 1 run, and 2 LOB.

Again, is it Beane's fault that Chavez, Byrnes, Durazo, Hatteburg and Kendall haven't been playing well.

Who knew, not many here thought that those first 4 hitters would be struggling as bad as they are now.

Here's what I thought they would do.

Chavez:.280, 30+ hrs, 100+ RBIs.
Durazo:.300, 20-25 hrs, 80-90 RBIs.
Byrnes:.270, 25-30 hrs, 80-90 RBIs.
Hatteburg:.280, 15-20 hrs, 60-70 RBIs.

As of now if you aveage the stats and project them the rest of the year. Now I expect all of them to have better year than the project stats but I don't think anybody thought it would be this bad.

Chavez:.190, 10 hrs, 42 RBIs.
Durazo:.240, 14 hrs, 64 RBIs.
Byrnes:.240, 14 hrs, 40 RBIs
Hatteburg:.270, 10 hrs, 50 RBIs.

It's true guys - let's be realistic:
If Chavez, Byrnes, Durazo, Hatteburg and Kendall hit the way they were last year or atleast CLOSE to what they are capable of, we could easily be 5 games above .500, or more. The pitching most of the time has been great. The problem is, when are the hitters gonna come around?

Watson has been fabulous in Sacramento and he's made good contact with all his at-bats since the call-up. Among his at-bats on Saturday, he lined out and had a deep flyout. How often does a guy get called up and not K? You guys should check out the Elephants in Oakland site to see a highly flattering profile of Watson.

Actually it is Beane's fault that Byrnes didn't start off well. Too many mind games with the trade rumors, the refusal to name him starting left-fielder, platooning him and the failure to give him consistent at-bats. Since Swish has been out and Byrnes has been getting consistent at-bats, he has started coming around. He's even hitting right-handed pitching. Of course now that Watson is here, Macha is going to pull out that old tired excuse about Byrnes not hitting right-handers and Byrnes will start losing playing time, getting platooned, and probably fall off again. More trade rumors are sure to help.

Free Byrnes--play him or trade him. No more bull, Billy Beane.

Kielty and Byrnes are the only A's hitters that
have been good in May. The biggest drop from April has been Kotsay.
