The Friday rumor mill

In general: moves afoot. The powers that be are angry after seeing the A’s somewhat methodically pick the team apart over three games.

Bavasi gone? Seems unlikely, especially ahead of the draft. Hargrove? Could happen. Some roster changes? More likely. Armstrong and Lincoln stepping down in an unexpected moment of self-awareness? Not going to happen.

PI on Hargrove’s team meeting (and the Times has a version). Theil on Mike Cameron. The Go 2 Guy returns to form with a column on Hargrove.

Times notes: Beltre could sit more

    We always wonder about the turning of the worm when they hit even one dinger (which is a sad, sad testament to how we have come to expect them to hit). So no, the worm has not turned.

    Maybe the Worm couldn’t turn on a fastball, but he sure could rebound.

    Jesse Floppert strikes:

    0.3 1 4 4 4 0

    His ERA stands at 6.97.

    You can’t deem Sexson as being back until hius slugging percentage takes a big leap upward. He’s not paid to hit singles.

    Helluva trade, that Winn deal.

    4 homers in 4 innings? What is this, Coors Fielf?

    204. Yeah, but he’s been doubling and homering lately.

    Does this lineup make sense to anyone other than Grover?
