Biggest news about a California Team right now


liljakeyplzandthnx

You clearly haven't heard that the Dodgers lost Andrew Heaney


ssjviscacha

California rest in piece


Luis_Severino

Chad move


Ok_Classic_744

We needed one to replace Pinder.


circusbass

This was my first thought as well.


Jason82929

Absolute blockbuster. How will the other 28 teams react?


Nasty_Ned

Other California teams in shambles.

MLB Execs REACT to this GAME BREAKING Trade!!!!


cooljammer00

The drummer?


bichettes_helmet

He dreamed of Californication


dsramsey

If that's not his walk up song, so help me god...


degjo

You could randomly pick any RHCP song and not be wrong


Ctmarlin

Sir Psycho Sexy


degjo

Well yeah, the chorus is fine.


poneil

The Chili Peppers just got John Frusciante back and now they lose Chad Smith. Peps are such a poverty franchise that they have the A's outbidding them for veteran talent.


CastYourStonesADTR

The Will Ferrell clone


Nonpoint77

The Big Cat?


LAAngelsAnaheim

*song about California intensifies*


dsramsey

Look out, other teams: we discovered that it's possible to sign free agents to multiyear deals **and** that you're allowed to trade *for* major leaguers and not just trade them away. Get scared.


dentxs

The stove is now officially red hot (chili peppers)

WE'RE DOING THINGS WE'RE DOING THINGS

The Bay Area team got its guy 😎

The Virgin 0 Dollar payroll, vs the Chad Smith


RAG319

I didn't even know the Chili Peppers' drummer played for the Rockies.


cinephile1987

Big cat


BlameTheBaseball

Two fun facts about Chad Smith: Another Chad Smith used to play for the A's about 10 years ago. The Marlins traded Chad Smith to the Rockies for Jesus Tinoco (the guy who gave up the home run to Aaron Judge), and then the Rockies claimed Jesus Tinoco right back on waivers.

Two Goliaths making moves get ready MLB

2023 World Series Champs confirmed


thekarmapoliceman96

The Chad Chad Smith vs. the Virgin Arson Judge


Cilantro42

This is the news we've all been waiting for


Anthrolologist

can’t stop addicted to the shindig


pspahn

How do you do fellow MLB teams?


michaellomeli

NOT NOW


mrcouch7

That’s not the A’s trade I was hoping to read


Zuramaru29

The stove is MOLTEN


DaDrFunk

Ah, the A’s trade we all wanted to see


ralbert

A’s got their guy!


king_zacarias

A’s preparing for another run when they get Arson Judge


Coxy41

Why all the tweets coming out in the last 20 minutes lol


ttam23

Bang


kyrbyr

Not exciting but his numbers at AAA the last two seasons are good enough to make him one of our setup guys lmao


neuse_on_the_loose

Jackson, Puk, Jimenez, Moll, Acevedo, and even Cyr and Paymaps all had much better numbers last year in the bigs


Trivin0_Trevin0

Smith had almost the same K/BB numbers as Jackson in much fewer innings


neuse_on_the_loose

Interesting, 27.7% and 17.7% for smith, 33.2% and 16.3% for Jackson


Trivin0_Trevin0

To me it sounds like they're attempting to repeat the magic they got from Jackson last season, whose minor league BB/9 was always pretty high. Smith's in comparison has been much better


Darksidedrive

Based off the two teams involved here, Chad Smith will be ridiculously dominant and the A’s will flip him for like 4 prospects at the deadline.


TheFunkiestofMonks

Solid pickup. Guy was an absolute monster through 2022z. Unlimited Love and Return of the dream Canteen was some of his best work yet


one_lucky_duck

WINTER MEETING A BOMB


rds060184

This isn't Arson Judge related wtf


yoboapp

The transaction I've been waiting for I can finally nut


Hentai_King290

The other Bay Area team wants the spotlight now


cinephile1987

Big Cat


breakfast_cats

I thought Will Ferrell retired in 2015


Monttavius

BLOCKBUSTER


PlayaSlayaX

Imagine getting traded to the Bay while everyone else is going nuts over whether or not another player might be headed there as well.


scrambledeggsalad

*Californication*


joey_1324

This is the A's news everyone has been waiting for


AcneBalls

I’ve seen him swing the sticks but never a bat.


neuse_on_the_loose

I don’t think I like this trade


mightyrj

Are we sure this ain’t one of the deals from Moneyball? Because it feeeeeeels like it.


quercus_lobata925

The A's are pretty good at finding diamonds in the rough when it comes to bullpen guys. That being said I'm surprised it took our #18 prospect to get him.


Arkham_Z

Blockbuster trade


sludge_fr8train

The pennant is ours!
