That is a sentiment shared by many fans of the Athletics.
Last Thursday as the team arrived in Chicago to face the White Sox to start a four-game series, Billy Beane fired then-manger Bob Geren. Bob Melvin – who last managed the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2009 – was named as interim manager
The news of Geren’s firing wasn’t too surprising for those who follow the A’s and since I was going to be at these games, I decided to seek out some A’s fans and see what they thought about what had happened with Geren and what was happening with the team in general.
Friday night, I found four fans who were from Oakland to see the team play and to also enjoy 70′s night.
What I learned from the fans was mostly unsurprising, though one fan did drop something VERY interesting in the conversation.
