The Weekly Bernie, 12/5/16: A’s add Matt Joyce during active week in MLB

The Weekly Bernie, 12/5/16: A’s add Matt Joyce during active week in MLB

The A’s made their first big roster addition in Matt Joyce, while a handful of former Athletics were on the move as well, among other news. Welcome back to The Weekly Bernie! Once the new CBA was agreed upon, this became a very busy week for baseball leading up to the Winter Meetings. It’s the best dance in the game, so let’s get rolling once more! The A’s made their first big addition of the offseason, signing outfielder Matt Joyce to a two year, $11 million deal. The move has been made official. Joyce, 32, was awful with the Los Angeles Angels in 2015, but really turned it around...

Matt Joyce is the perfect Oakland A’s role player

Matt Joyce is the perfect Oakland A’s role player

And there was much re-Joyce-ing. The Oakland A’s signed a free agent on Wednesday, left-handed OF Matt Joyce — or, possibly, platoon DH Matt Joyce. It’s not the biggest move in the world, at two years and $11 million total. He’s not the most exciting name even in this thin outfield market, between established guys like Cespedes and Fowler and even the tantalizing power upside of wild card Eric Thames. But if you’re looking for signs of life out of the A’s after a pair of last-place seasons, then I have good news: this is exactly the kind of quiet, shrewd pickup that winning...

Carlos Gomez: The High-Upside Signing the Oakland A’s Need

Today the Oakland A’s fulfilled the Matt Joyce prophecy handed down by BWH, Duncan Morrow, and Dayn Perry. Matt Joyce as the A's big winter addition is written in the stars.— Dayn Perry (@daynperry) November 8, 2016 There are opinions aplenty regarding the newest Athletics designated hitter (presumably) but I believe the numbers speak for themselves: Joyce owns a career wRC+ of 114, including a 123 wRC+ against right-handed pitchers. His defense leaves something to be desired, so hopefully he won’t roam the outfield often. Also on the agenda for the team is finding a new...

Oakland A’s sign Matt Joyce pending physical, reports Ken Rosenthal

The Athletics have signed Matt Joyce to a two-year, $11 million deal, says Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Matt Joyce and the Oakland Athletics have come to terms on a two-year, $11 million deal, reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, via his Twitter account. The signing is pending a physical. Joyce, 32, is coming off one of the best offensive seasons of his career with an eye-popping .403 on base percentage and 20.1 percent walk rate with the Pittsburgh Pirates, albeit in just 293 plate appearances. Joyce’s .242/.403/.463 line was good for a 137 wRC+, mostly against righties and as a frequent...

Happy birthday, Matt Garza

Happy 33rd birthday to Matt Garza, who threw the only no-hitter in Tampa Bay Rays history. On Monday, July 26, 2010, at Tropicana Field, Garza no-hit the Detroit Tigers for a 5-0 win. The Tigers’ Max Scherzer was also working on a no-hitter that night but lost it on a Matt Joyce grand slam in …

Oakland Athletics Free Agent Target: Eric Thames

The A's desperately need left-handed hitting. I said this before, in my Matt Joyce article last week. But man, it remains true. The Athletics' best hitters are all righties –Khris Davis, Ryon Healy, Marcus Semien. Their two top prospects, Matt Chapman and Franklin Barreto? Both righties. All great players! But in a league where around 70% of the starting pitchers are right-handed, you're going to need some lefties, even if left-handed people are bad luck and probably inherently evil. The A's best lefties are Stephen Vogt, Bruce Maxwell, and, uh, Matt Olson, I guess. Matt Olson probably...
