Breaking News: A's Fire Manager Bob Geren

The Oakland A's have fired manager Bob Geren after a 27-36 start and a nine-game losing streak. Bob Melvin has been named the interim replacement. Can't say I am all that surpised, the A's were supposed to challenge for the AL West, but they haven't been very good and as of today are in last place (8 games behind Texas).

Bottom line is the A's never bother to get an offense. I like their pitching staff, but that is now going to faulter with Anderson most likely needing Tommy John. They have a solid base, but the alway seem to and if they are going to ever compete they are going to need to go out and spend money on good free agents and not just washed up vets (Matsui).
