Five Important Questions for the 2018 Oakland A's

Two weeks left to determine what the last 3 months have brought us: Will the A's start an "opener" in the playoffs? Does home/road even matter to this team? Can the A's adjust to "defense first" playoff baseball. What about (the lack of) postseason experience for Oakland's players?

45: A's 2018 Season Preview

Along with Bip Roberts, we preview all aspects of the A's 51st season in Oakland - including what the team can build on from last year, what they've added since, and what are the next steps in 2018. Opening Day is March 29th, on NBC Sports California!


44: Riding Shotgun with Bob Melvin in Arizona

Bob Melvin is a busy man every Spring Training in Arizona, but on the way to our free-throw-shooting-competition (yes, seriously) we had this conversation. Bob discusses everything from giving smooth signs on the field, to maintaining a normal life away from work, and whether baseball has become too boring. Also - thoughts on Yoenis Cespedes, launch angles, and the fan critique that "gets" to him.


43: Three Things I'm Not & Ryan Christenson

This week's show begins with a criticism, an admission, and a new direction. Then later - nobody knows the next core of A's players like Ryan Christenson. The former A's outfielder was their minor league manager at every level through the system, and now he's the Bench Coach in Oakland. Ryan gives full insight on making it back to MLB, and what to expect from Chapman, Olson, Barreto, and Pinder.


42: Now That The Sharks Have Evander Kane...

Today, the San Jose Sharks pulled off their biggest acquisition since Brent Burns in June 2011. Evander Kane is now a big part of Team Teal, but what does that mean for this season, and the future? Instant reaction on 9 fronts, plus reaction from General Manager Doug Wilson on the winger who will wear number 9.


41: Matt Chapman & Matt Olson

Matt Chapman and Matt Olson have a lot of people excited about the future of Oakland A's baseball. Chapman discusses being a quiet leader, how his defense helped build his MLB foundation, and why he hit 100 points higher at the Coliseum than on the road last season. Olson gives us great insights into his unique batting stance, the 47 total homers he hit last season, and how the A's can trade strikeouts for more productive outs in 2018.


40: Andrew Triggs & Liam Hendriks

Andrew Triggs and Liam Hendriks each pitched themselves up the A's depth charts in 2017. Triggs discusses how his 1 minor league start wasn't even legitimate, and how that has led to a current role as a starter. Also his "reliever-like" mechanics of a lower arm-slot and throwing across his body working in the job of a starter. Hendriks chats about the bullpen's anticipated improvements in 2018, why he was so good at home versus the road, and how leadership will evolve in Oakland's clubhouse.


39: Kendall Graveman & Sean Manaea

They look to be the pillars for Oakland's starting rotation in 2018. Kendall Graveman discusses how he views his health differently now than ever before, why arm injuries are so prevalent among MLB pitchers, and why he and teammates didn't want the 2017 season to end. Sean Manaea shares how Bob Melvin gave his team goosebumps headed into 2018, what the AL West should be like this Summer, and what he embraces about living and playing in Oakland.


38: Rickey Henderson & Marcus Semien

Recorded at FanFest 2019 -- where we begin with perspectives about Jack London Square, and revisiting a potential future home for the A's at Howard Terminal. Rickey Henderson discusses the difference between teaching versus doing at the Major League level, how the A's became more athletic last season, and how often he will be around in 2018. Marcus Semien explains how leadership has continued despite such turnover on Oakland's roster, plus how MLB can fix it's declining percentage of...
