A’s fans, we would like to welcome to you a new Oakland Athletics Blog! Athleticshomeplate will be blogging about your favorite team the Oakland A’s! We hope to have a new article up on the site each and every day during the season as the A’s battle it out in the West Division of the American League.
The Athletics are making a few moves this off season as they have traded Dan Haren to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and Joe Blanton is also on the trading block. I wish management would keep around some of these pitchers and build the team around them but it doesn’t look like that is happening.
What do you think? Do you agree with the Haren trade, and possibly seeing Blanton being moved before spring training? I sure don’t, but please leave us a comment and let us know what your opinions are on these moves and the 2008 season.
