Coliseum unkind to power hitters
If Frank Thomas isn't healthy enough to earn those bonuses, the A's won't miss him. The A's already had a solid lineup.
Actually, it was a teleconference, with Beane presiding over all the writers and broadcasters who cared to dial in for his comments about the signing of Thomas. I planned to take good notes, but I gave up almost immediately, after being reminded that Beane rarely says anything worth repeating (on the record, at least).
I did get one for posterity (though it wasn't one of my own lame questions).
