(Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)   One team that MLB fans never see make noise in the offseason is the Oakland Athletics. Last season, the A’s were the worst team in baseball, and their unwillingness to spend money is an issue. The A’s never pay up for any top player and when they do get a star player they trade him before his contract is up. Any move the A’s make is seemingly cost-efficient and will help keep their payroll down. The only way the A’s are going to be successful is by drafting and developing their players. But, they did decide to go outside for some help on Frid ..read more

(Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)   After the owners’ approval earlier this month, Oakland Athletics owner John Fisher has a clear path to moving the team to Las Vegas before the 2028 season. There are still steps he and his team need to complete (important ones, too), but he has the green light from his fellow owners. Fans in Oakland are deeply hurt that the team that gave them so much joy is now going to be taken away from them. However, they still intend to watch and enjoy baseball, and have unveiled a new local team. “A new baseball team is being unveiled in Oakland after MLB ap ..read more

(Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics relocation to Las Vegas received, literally, a vote of confidence by MLB owners on Thursday. They unanimously approved their move to Nevada during the MLB owners meeting. This doesn’t mean it’s official, but it should be eventually. A’s owner John Fisher is so desperately eager to leave Oakland that the franchise won’t have a permanent home from 2025 to 2027. His mind and efforts are entirely dedicated to the Las Vegas move. In the meantime, Oakland fans are the ones suffering. MLB insider Bob Nightengale explains the situatio ..read more

(Photo by Rich Schultz/Getty Images)   This week, during the owner’s meetings in MLB, they were expected to vote on the issue of the Oakland Athletics relocation process. A’s owner John Fisher has been pushing to move the team to Las Vegas and secured some public funding from the state of Nevada to build a new stadium there. His plan needed the approval of at least 75 percent of the owners in the league (23 in total) to move forward. On Thursday, it was reported that all remaining owners voted to approve the A’s relocation to Las Vegas, paving the way for Fisher to keep moving forward. Th ..read more

(Photo by Brandon Vallance/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics, specifically their owner John Fisher, want to move to Las Vegas. Fans in Oakland and all over the country have made it very clear that they are against the move, but the owner hasn’t been moved by their drive so far and probably never will if facts are any indication. To keep the project going, however, Fisher needed the approval of 75 percent of his fellow owners: 23 votes in total. During the owner meetings this week, they gathered and decided, unanimously, that the A’s should move forward with their relocation plan. “The ..read more

(Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)   MLB is preparing to move the Oakland Athletics to Las Vegas sometime in the next five years.

(Photo by Ron Jenkins/Getty Images)   Many MLB teams wish they could still be playing. But, to make it this deep into October you must have a good organization from the top down. One team that fails at that is the Oakland Athletics. While they have done a good job at finding players, they are never willing to spend money to keep them. You can see former A’s sprinkled throughout the MLB playoffs. Two of which are headed to the World Series. Both Marcus Semien and Jonah Heim were on the A’s before joining the Texas Rangers. According to Shayna Rubin, the A’s did not do much to try and keep ..read more

(Photo by Brandon Vallance/Getty Images)   The Oakland Athletics have always been a team that does not spend money. That is what has made it so difficult for them to be successful. Many of the best teams around the league can buy the top players. Well, the A’s are one team that cannot. That is why A’s GM Billy Beane created the “Moneyball” strategy. They found a way to buy runs instead of buying players. Which was a strategy that made them successful for a while. But over the past few years, they have reverted to being one of the worst teams in baseball. As the season comes to a close, th ..read more

(Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images)   As bad as the Oakland Athletics have been this season (trust us, they have been really bad), they have also surprised us more than a few times with positive developments. They are 45-99, but they managed to string together a seven-game winning streak in June, they organized that marvelous reverse boycott that month, and now they took down the reigning World Series champs on the road. In case you are at home keeping score, that’s a record given the circumstances. “Tonight the @Athletics blanked the Astros 4-0 in Houston. It’s the first time in MLB h ..read more
