anybody else think signing Beane through 2014 was a pretty smart move? or was it just PR? i think it's a great move, he's shown a great interest in the team (part owner too) since doing his about face in 2003 after "leaving" for boston, and he has put us in contention every year. some great pickups this year in cust, dinardo, and to get gaudin and what he has become, and stewart as well. even if they can be painfully difficult to watch from the offense perspective sometimes, he has given us a contender every year and we have one of the best records in baseball since 2000. now if only we had some hardware...

-2nd best record since 2000 only behind the Yanks.

-5 postseason apperances, 4 Division Titles..1 Wild Card.

-has helped the A's have one of the best farm teams in all of MLB the past decade.

-doing this with having the payroll in the bottom 1/2 of all MLB.


Though isn't Beane part owner of the A's now? Him and Crowley? So Beane and the A's will be joined by the hip for a long time.


Great move.
