What's Billy up to?  Trading away Derek Norris, Jeff Samardzija, Brandon Moss, Josh Donaldson... is this a new form of Billy-ball?  Trade away your All Stars?

^ That's what the A's have always done. They have always let players go in favor of a smaller payroll. That's why they're always just mediocre. The past couple years were the exception.

^ Correct, they trade away before having to pay a big contract but I read somewhere that they have traded 5 of 7 All Stars (wish I could find that article now...).  I understand they are not a big market team and cannot afford to pay the big contracts but you would think they would attempt to keep some of their core together.

SD is going trade-crazy, getting Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Wil Myers without giving up too much.

I like some of the moves the White Sox are making - getting Melky Cabrera, Adam LaRoche, Jeff Samardzija, David Robertson.  Not so excited about Brad Penney.  The AL East is becoming a tough division.

Hard to question Billy considering he has kept the A's competitive so many times with one of the smallest payrolls, but must be tough as a fan for sure.

Agreed. I'm sure Billy has something up his sleeve unless it is an overhaul. But they've always got a good farm system to pick from.

^ about that farm system. Their AAA team Sacramento Rivercats became affiliated with the SF Giants this past off season. I'm sure that affects how good their farm teams are...

Hmm..probably should have started a new thread instead. Because 80+ pages of posts are not for 2015...

Dodgers have been rated as having the second best farm system behind the Cubs...as a life long Dodger fan this is music to my ears...you want home grown players not a bunch of hired guns.  Obviously, free agents and trades are critical to success in this day an age but having "local" talent is also important and simply is more satisfying when they win imo.

Tried to get some Jays tickets for the home opener but apparently it sold out in 15 minutes. Looks like it's either Stubhub or at the mercy of scalpers once again.

Kemp was overrated in my opinion as his offensive skills declined and he was ratted as one of the worst defenders in the league... They definitely upgraded big at catcher in the deal and Joc may be a better overall player in year one...we shall see. Big upgrade with Kendrick and Rollins and back end of rotation and bull pen improved...this team should fair better in post season...
