A dismal spring training ended today, after a thorough beat down from the San Francisco Giants at our own home ball park. Don’t let the 10-6 score fool ya, we were down 10 nil until the late eighth. Our genial postgame radio host Robert Buan just got sacked and the few pitchers who aren’t injured have had one horrible start apiece (Opening Day starter Ben Sheets giving up 10 runs without getting an out). Today however might have been the most hopeful news since pitchers and catchers reported. The A’s did a big spring cleaning, and open the season Monday with a bunch of new faces.
