The Giants are not the only Bay Area team with a superb pitching staff; there is that “other” team over in the East Bay. The Oakland A’s have a very talented and young rotation in Trevor Cahill, Brett Anderson, Gio Gonzalez, and Dallas Braden along with All-Star closer Andrew Bailey.
Offensive additions Hideki Matsui, David DeJesus and Josh Willingham should improve the A’s overall production (third worst offense in 2010). In addition, watch for Kurt Suzuki and Mark Ellis to improve on their 2010 statistics.
Learn more about the A’s this Tuesday March 29, 2011 at the free Fan Appreciation Tailgate Party.
The tailgate takes place in the Oakland Coliseum parking lot A beginning at 4:00 pm and runs until 6:30 pm prior to the exhibition game against the San Francisco Giants. The tailgate is free to the public, and does not require a game ticket. Parking is also free.
The tailgate features player and coaching staff Q&As, autograph sessions, memorabilia displays (including World Series trophies) and more.
Event highlights include:
Q & A sessions
Photos with World Series Trophies and former players Joe Rudi and Tony Phillips
