That big old SOB is back in the bay.
Yeah, he's like 77 years old and the Toronto Blue Jays dumped his ass, but the A's got him dirt cheap and he can still work the count with the best of them.
I don't know if this means that they're going to have to play Cust in LF all the time now, or maybe they'll platoon him with Barton.
He'll fit nicely with that relatively young offense and give them some depth. If Oakland's starting pitching holds up, Gaudin pitched a gem last night, they're going to be in this race. To me, they're the second best team in the division.
