Straw is a weapon.

Straw needs to be on the playoff roster
Pretty sure he will be if he's healthy. He was on it last year before they even knew if he could hit at the MLB level.

The AAA guys have totally changed this from a HR hitting team to a speed team.

We kept crappy joe smith on the ALCS roster last year who we didn't even use

The kid is as automatic of a stolen base as you can have. You leave that weapon on your playoff roster over the 12th arm all day long

The seagulls are insane
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Josh taking big hacks today, that homer yesterday may have gone to his head

Don't you get to keep the DH if you bring in a pinch runner for them?

Not gonna complain about scoring two runs but a couple of our ABs this inning were ass.

Pretty sure the seagulls outnumber the A's fans at this point.

And I don't think Straw or Fisher have the upside the Tucker or Alvarez does, but they can both be at the very least contributors at this level and it's smart of the organization to give them a shot here.

Pick two:

Straw, Kemp, Marisnick, Fisher

tough choice.

jake for sure because of defense.

i take fisher over kemp because i feel like he's a better hitter. and faster (i think)

really tough to choose between fisher and straw after that...

Jake and the human pogo stick will be staying. I want White to pull a dorsal fin reaching for a piece of pizza and send him to the IL and keep Straw.

I don't think it should be unnoticed that White sat the last two days in favor of Straw and Fisher.

White is done for. He has no value to this team going forward. Should trade him for anything at this point.

I would guess that's what will happen. Luhnow was able to get a solid return for JD Davis, whose Astros ABs made White look like Tony Gwynn. Someone will give us a lottery ticket or two for him. I do think he's going to be productive major leaguer but it's probably the best move for everyone.
