I miss him seeing him pitch, especially the pace of the game when he is on the mound.
At 42, and 100 pounds heavier than when he began pitching in the major leagues 213 wins ago, Bartolo Colon continues to confound.

Deep down inside, I was kind of hoping this would happen. 
Barry Zito, who spent the first six years of his career with the A’s and won the Cy Young award with the club in 2002, is returning to the team. The Chronicle learned on Monday evening that Zito will sign a minor-league team with the A’s and will be in spring camp with the club. Zito, 36, was a three-time All-Star with Oakland before signing a seven-year, $126 million deal with the Giants after the 2006 season. The Giants declined Zito’s $14 m...

I can see, with Parker and Griffin not coming back till midyear, a way he makes the team. Or maybe he looks good in spring training and another team picks him up.

Good reading before the fanfest :)
One of the greatest franchises in MLB history, the Athletics have lots of great moments but also some pretty bad ones. Let's take a look.

Who was the last A's pitcher caught using a foreign substance on a ball? I had thought Kenny Rogers, but he was with Detroit when he got caught.
Two pitchers got suspended in the past week for applying foreign substances to the baseball, igniting the latest debate of Rule 8.02. Though it’s considered widespread, managers don’t like calling out opposing pitchers because so many of their own do the same thing. Former A’s pitcher Dallas Braden went as far as saying his old team had an “application station” in spring training. “Here, we tried to gain an advantage or at least put ourselves ...

Not panicking. But I thought our problem would be scoring runs, not pitching. So far, the A's are tied for 2nd in runs scored and 21st in ERA.

While waiting for this book to arrive, I'm reading Nick Hornby's Fever Pitch, about being a fan of the Arsenal football club. I can see myself in his book.
