So you know I'm not being neglectful (I am, but for other reasons), I just want to note that I think it's pointless to talk about Sean Doolittle's new extension without knowing the money involved. I mean, I guess we can say "it'll be fun having him around," but as Chadd Maia pointed out on Twitter today:
Who was the last Athletic to sign a 4+ year extension that finished the contract still in Oakland?— Chadd Maia (@ChaddMaia) April 18, 2014
My answer is Eric Chavez. Before that, Barry Zito. Before that ... uh. So not to be Debbie Downer (who am I kidding; that's exactly who I am), but we can't even really exult past one year with anyone on this team ever. So like I said, let's wait for the money.
