As a fan of the team for nearly 30 years, I can't tell you how mad and disappointed I am. The organization needs a real owner who actually cares and takes some pride in the team.

I remember the last baseball game I watched totally. Cal Ripken broke the record.

Successful pro sports teams need to be owned by individuals, not corporations, to be successful.

100% agree. I know there are some exceptions, but the ones I can think of off the top of my head are owned by local corporations with some sense of city pride. The Atlanta Braves are owned by a media group out of Colorado, if I remember correctly.

Losing Maitan hurts, badly. He's supposed to be a game changing prospect.

It looks like Bama just found a new Athletics Director they can count on.

That entire international class was supposed to be a special group.

To add insult to injury, the players that have now been released into free agency also get to keep the $15 million in signing bonus money that was given. Not saying that shouldn't be the case, but I think Maitan got a $4 million+ signing bonus and has a chance at another big one now. Not bad for a 17 year old kid.
