Truthfully this blog took me forever to do the research for, simply because the A’s GM Billy Beane has been so proactive at the trading helm.
Yes, along the way he may have been burned by Colorado for Carlos Gonzalez, but in a the Dbacks deal still is paying off.
The Roster deals include several Oakland draft picks being flipped for current A’s.
Jaso was brought back in a 3 way deal from Washington, where the A’s sent the SP back to the team they traded Gio Gonzalez for.
Sometimes baseball can act as a safe outlet for hate, bitterness and other unsavory emotions that we all have but are not proud of.
My dislike of the Arizona Diamondbacks is a perfect example of that.
It is a hate filled episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Carlos Beltran clobbered a grand slam and added an RBI single, driving in 5 and scoring 2 as the Yankees topped the Indians in a wild 10-6 game.
Hisashi Iwakuma threw 7 innings, allowing just 1 run while striking out 7 White Sox, earning the Mariners 4-1 win.
David Peralta doubled, tripled, walked, stole a base, drove in a run and scored a pair, leading Arizona to a rare victory, 5-3 over the Rockies.
Nathan Eovaldi threw 8 shutout innings, letting up 5 hits and 1 walk as the Marlins snuck past the Reds, 2-1.
