Oakland Athletics Injury Jinks Hits Ellis… Yet Again

July 22, 2008 at 7:49 pm (Baseball)

Far and away, the most interesting franchise in Organized Baseball is Billy Beane’s Oakland A’s. They’re a team in a constant state of rebuilding. Not year to year. Not month to month. Literally, day to day. I’d love to see how it works out, but alas, I never will. Injuries [six players are currently on the disabled list] have once again ruined another season, at least from the standpoint of player evaluation. Second straight year. At the risk of repeating myself, will there ever be a better time for the team to dump their entire medical/training staff?

Only yesterday in a conversation with a friend, I questioned the validity of acquiring as many 2nd baseman as they have in the past few weeks. Today the team announced that Mark Ellis, who is pictured bellow, has a sore right shoulder [a horrible set back for Beane’s short term dealing] . My guess is Beane had an inkling.
