Maybe it's been the unseasonably sunny, warm weather. Or maybe it's just the baseball fan's biological clock ticking. Whatever the reason, we're increasingly in the need of an Oakland baseball fix. So, with pitchers and catchers ready report to Arizona in a matter of days, we here at Baseball Oakland can't wait for the 2010 season to start.
Yeah, there are a lot of uncertainties surrounding Oakland's Athletics and the team's stadium situation. But even with all that uncertainty, it's nice to know we can still go to the Oakland Coliseum and rely on some things that will never change: the pitchers' mound is still 60 feet 6 inches from home plate, the flag-waving fans in the outfield bleachers are still the most loyal and knowledgeable in the country and Jack Cust will drop a routine fly ball at least once a month. Just kidding on that last one. Kind of.
The bottom line is we're fired up for another Oakland A's season. And we know you are, too. We'll be spending much of February and March buying A's tickets to enjoy games at the Coliseum. Hope to see you there.
