Bay Area Update: The Brett Anderson Situation

Last week, Steve Berman and I stressed one pitcher in particular when we talked about the promising and youthful Oakland A’s pitching staff:

Brett Anderson.

The young lefty has been struggling with injuries and motivation for the last two years, and in a new ESPN column properly named “30 Questions”, Tristan Cockcroft examines the Anderson question (ESPN Article).

Berman and I both agreed that, when healthy, Brett Anderson could arguably be the best pitcher in the deep Oakland stable, which includes Trevor Cahill and his 18-win 2010 season. The possibilities are endless for the A’s if they have a duo of Cahill and Anderson at the top, then the likes of Gio Gonzalez and Dallas Braden towards the bottom of the rotation.

This article from Cockcroft is a great read, and it elaborates on the coverage we’ve given Brett Anderson this last week.

Also, there will be posts a-plenty tomorrow on all of the Miami news, especially CryGate and Hanley Ramirez. Keep your eyes out for both those pieces.

Furthermore, if you so find it interesting, the NCAA Women’s Selection Show is due to start at 7PM tonight on ESPN. Is this a shameless plug for the Lady Foxes of Marist College? Absolutely! Let’s Go Foxes! And hopefully, the committee recognizes the talent and brilliance that leads this squad!
