#1 According to Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred the season could be pushed back to start as early as late May or early June. With Covid-19 cases multiplying will there even be a season?
#2 Marcus Semien the A’s second baseman will he get a new contract before the season starts or will the A’s wait until they get the clear when baseball comes back to negotiate terms with Semien?
#3 Taking a look who was the best all time double play combinations in the game let us know your thoughts on these favorites double play combinations, From the Chicago Cubs Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chance, From the Brooklyn Dodgers Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson, and Gil Hodges, From the New York Yankees Phil “Scooter” Rizuto, Jerry Coleman, and Moose Skowron, from the Los Angeles Dodgers Bill Russell, Davey Lopes, and Steve Garvey, and finally from the Cincinnati Reds Dave Concepcion, Joe Morgan, and Tony Perez.
#4 Who to you were the greatest Oakland A’s teams the 1972-74 A’s? or the 1988-90 A’s?
#5 The A’s have transgressed they could very well lose most of this season to the virus shutdown, they have not secured Howard Terminal during this delayed season, and they will not broadcast any of their games on English radio.
