OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: Crystal Crosby back on DL
This used to be big news. At this point, Murphy may be an upgrade.
Fu''in Speier. I thought we should have thrown at one of their guys, maybe today....we'll even the score. The guy got 2 hits, a bunt single and a nice shot to left, then gets busted in the hand, why you got to bust a guy inside when he's 3 yards from the plate. Ridiculous.
who cares! Most of us have been wanting him out of the way anyway. This is a blessing - and not even in disguise. It also just confirms how brittle he is.
"I thought we should have thrown at one of their guys."
Lost for the season is what Ken and Ray are saying on the radio broadcast.
Yes, sacto, most A's fans (me included) would love to see a talented replacement for Crosby. He's been overrated, IMO. But ... I feel sorry for the guy. He has had numerous injuries ... not of the hamstring or oblique variety, either. Most all broken bones and long term chunks on the DL. We all shake our heads when we hear of another injury to Harden and/or Crosby. Whether you like them or not, this is their career and with so many injuries (not self-induced, mind you) these guys have to be wondering if they'll ever realize their dream and reach their career potential or whether they'll have to find another line of work. It has to be extremely depressing for them. I just think it is sad and feel for them, whether I want them on my team or not. Nobody deserves that kind of luck. I think it is sad.
Wishful thinking, but Miguel comes off the DL on Friday.
According to reports, the Angels are looking to trade for Konerko so Tejada isn't a likely target with them having both Wood, their top prospect, up and Cabrera having a very good season.
In today's notes, Slusser says Harden is once again "close" to throwing.
BTW, My daughter said there were some Angel fans laughing when Crosby got hurt.
"In today's notes, Slusser says Harden is once again "close" to throwing."
Even so, I'm not getting my hopes up...
not one bit! It's just the latest tease.
Dorrit, you will get that every where, even here. There are just fans who just don't get it. There are just a few morons out there that give the fans a bad name. Just don't categorize them all together if we do, we should all be cell phone tossing, chair throwing hooligans.
Re shortstops in the system. I am following Gregorio Petit closely. Excellent defender and is showing some promise offensively. He was hitting .306 at Midland and voted to the Texas League All-Star team, though he never played in it, as he was promoted to Sacto.
Petit has no shot with the A's. He runs too fast.
Speed - the kiss of death for an A's player.
The Curse of Rickey
Would I ever love to finally see some speed out on the bases!!!
They sometimes let the kids run the bags after some of the home games. Sacto, you might enjoy that.
Has anybody missed Crosby, I haven't.
Correction, Murphy came in late July.
Can't say I miss him. I cringed whenever I saw him lunge at the low and away pitch.
Murphy with a two run HR...Crosby should start worry about your long term sitatuion here IMO regardless of his contract.
Just keep it up Murphy. He is also showing he is more relaxed in the field. And his arm/rocket is incredible. I hope he just keeps going like he is. Will Beane have the balls to make him the #1 ss, if he does? This could prove to be very interesting come next spring. I certainly hope so, anyway. Wasn't he a high draft choice by KC? Also I see where he has not played ss throughout his minor league career. Nice article on him on A's mlb site, by the way.
Murph!! the kid continues to come thru. Makes it easier to say adios to your former ROY, Ben Greive....oops.....Bobby Crosby.
RE-sign Miggy and play Murph at THIRD !!
Murphy was KC's 5th round pick in the 02 draft, not a high pick, but still pretty highly thought of to be drafted in the first handful of rounds in the MLB draft.
Crosby's job is definitely in jeopardy.
crosby is done!!!!! 3 yrs and nothing.
Miggy is owed $26mil over the next two years. Just think, he could have had more in Detroit but thought Baltimore was closer to winning, evidently, when he made his decision on where to sign
