An Early Christmas Present

As a diehard Oakland Athletics fan... there hasn't a lot to cheer about the past few weeks.  But this morning I woke up and discovered that my favorite player is returning to my favorite team.

Hopefully, he can turn things around for both himself and the struggling Athletics.  Worst case scenario... at least he'll bring some stability, a solid defensive glove, and veteran leadership to the A's pitching staff that has recently started to struggle.

Welcome back Kurt!

Happy Friday and sayonara!


  1. You're the first person I thought of when I read the news! Happy to hear he's back!

  2. You're gladness is my sadness. This Nats Fan is shocked by the news, and the guy he was traded for? I never heard of. ((((sigh))))

  3. Odd, most of the Phillies that come back do so for 1 day so they can retire as a Phil!!

  4. Cool. I hadn't heard that news yet.

  5. I'm happy too! Suzuki is one of those that I cannot see in an other uniform ohter than the A's green and yellow.
    I noticed Suzuki when I got him in my first year playing fantasy. He was awesome back then. Hope he brings some life to your A's.

  6. Heard this on my team's broadcast today (the announcers regularly discuss the baseball news as the game goes along).

    Had to check in here tonight ... you certainly called it, just a few weeks ago.
