Let's not freak out about Jason Hammel

The other pitcher the Athletics got in the Shark trade is off to an inauspicious start in Oakland. The Oakland Athletics spent big to get Jason Hammel. Sure, he was just tagging along behind the larger haul of Jeff Samardzija, but he did not come cheaply. So, it comes as no surprise that A's fans expect a lot from him. Unfortunately, he has stumbled out of the gate in his first two starts in green and gold; he was behind Oakland's only loss to the Giants, and he got smoked in his subsequent effort against the Orioles. That shaky first impression has a lot of folks second-guessing Beane's...

Let's talk about Jason Hammel

So everybody's talking about Jeff Samardzija. What about his rotation-mate we also acquired, Jason Hammel? Most of us have heard a lot about Jeff Samardzija in recent days. (And for good reason! He's great. I even wrote a fanboy post introducing him to Oakland fans.) But ... but ... but ... There's this other guy who was acquired in the same deal. His name is Jason Hammel, and he's making his debut tonight (Wed. July 9) at AT&T Park. Last weekend, Bleed Cubbie Blue's Al Yellon wrote a full-blown in memoriam of Jeff Samardzija for us, tracing his history with the Cubs organization and his...
