Padres fans are stupid if they think Wolfe and Prior will be pitching in Sept.
They also went 7-9 in that stretch. So to answer the question, no.Quote:

The A's seem to be a breeding ground for young players. They let the prospects develop, and when they're about to hit the market they either let them walk or trade them for more raw prospects, etc. They hardly ever lock anyone up to long term deals (see Tejada, Giambi, Haren, and Zito)
Still scratching my head over Swisher (and Haren for that matter). Doesn't seem that long ago when Billy Beane signed Swisher to a 5 year extension. Hell, doesn't seem that long ago when the A's were in the ALCS.
But I guess if any GM has earned the benefit of the doubt....
