It's too bad Billy Beane couldn't have waited a week to trade Kirk Saarloos. The A's Fan Fest is coming up on Saturday, and it would have been nice to have Saarloos around. Last year, of all the people who appeared in Q&A sessions, Saarloos was probably the most entertaining of them all. The dude may not have a sharp fastball, but he does have a sharp wit.
I have plans to attend Fan Fest again this year. If anyone else is going, and wants to meet up, let me know.
