It wasn’t a particularly interesting week for the Athletics, but that didn’t stop us here at Swingin’ A’s from writing about the green-and-gold. This week included stories addressing the Manny Ramirez rumors, Rich Harden’s latest injury, and Billy Beane’s contract extension through 2019.
Also included were the usual Crystal Ball and Top Prospects weekly posts as well as a bonus article about a local A’s fan vying for a spot in MLB’s Fan Cave. We hope you’ll take the time to revisit these stories from the past week while we gear up for another A’s-filled week of February. Enjoy!
