What’s wrong with the A’s? Chad Dotson 10/11/2006 4 Ouch. The Tigers are beating the devil out of Oakland in the ALCS, on the A’s home turf. I’m a bit surprised.

Nobody really sits around and calls John Schuerholz (sp?) a fluke despite the Braves rarely getting out of the first round in his tenure. Beane’s problem isn’t that he’s a fluke but that the book crowned him the genius of MLB which immediately made him the second most scrutinized GM in all of baseball (I’d say Cashman is probably first). Chris in Venice 10/12/2006 The Tigers are really good. Matt 10/12/2006 knowing Chris the way I do, I think he was being sarcastic. GodlyCynic 10/12/2006 Bah, stupid me then.
