Just a quick BBST update! Just a quick update on what is going on with me! Sorry to interrupt your baseball reading but I just wanted to let everyone know that I will now have two Twitter accounts – one for my work at Fan Rag Sports Network and Today’s Knuckleball in which I won’t be overtly cheering for my Oakland teams. Being that my job is to cover the Athletics, I can’t be so overly biased on social media. I’m not biased in my columns on the network, however, I can’t go around (as much as I’d like to) […]

A quick BBST update!

Buster Olney wrote and “Insiders Only” piece on ESPN.com Saturday called, “The Athletics drive to contend is admirable in today’s times.“ It IS admirable and using both Olney’s statistics and my own, I intend to show you exactly why their drive to contend has not only been successful but beyond that, that most team’s in their situation would not or choose not to […]

A’s competitive ambition is admirable



2015 A's, AL West, Zack Wheeler
Well, just so y’all know, I’ve been hired on to work at FanRag Sports‘ MLB site Today’s Knuckleball u covering for the most part the American League West! Shocking, I know. It’s not like it’s my specialty or anything. LOL! But in all seriousness I am very grateful and excited for this opportunity!! It’s a respected site that respects their writers and I am beyond excited to join the team. As would be most appropriate my first story for Today’s Knuckleball will be about the Oakland Athletics. Yes, they are my favorite team but I was trying to find another story/team […]
