Athletic Supporters | MVN - A's Must Find Consistency at the Dish

Consistency, Matthew Nielsen says! That's straight from the Joe Morgan playbook, as is calling out Jack Cust, wondering why he plays every day when he so clearly sucks. Answer? Best OBP on the team, at .426. No on else, aside from Frank Thomas, is even sniffing .400. Slugging at .462. That's tied with Thomas for the team lead. His seven homers lead the team. In short, he plays every day because he's the best offensive player on the team!
