Well, it is finally here. Thank goodness. Somehow we've made it through another long offseason and have the long summer to look forward to. There have been some big changes here in OADland (including the birth of the first OADlet), so let us catch you up on where we stand on some important issues:
We think that cancelling FanFest (the one day a year we get to see our dear friend Eugene) was the suckiest, lamest, most terrible thing.
We think getting Robert Buan off the radio was the exact opposite -- pure genius.
We think some of the A's prospects look good, but who really knows with prospects. All we can say is that we hope they can hit.
We think Eric Chavez is going to have a good year at first base because at spring training he looked happy and loose.
We think Green Collar Baseball is a great campaign.
We think Bob Geren really has to put up or shut up this year. We are tired of him and all the losing he brought with him.
We think that designating Jack Cust was the right thing to do and we're not that sad about it.
We think that Ronnie Wash's cocaine admission was the saddest thing.
We think that the lack of any huge signings has made us kind of ambivalent about the twenty-ten A's, but after the massive disappointment that was Matt "How Can He Live With Himself" Holliday, maybe that isn't a bad thing.
We think a Roy Steele bobblehead is awesome and we don't even like bobbleheads.
We think that this season has to be better.
We think that even if it isn't, we are so happy the wait is over.
