MLB: A’s GM says team will be dismantled

The Oakland Athletics They were quiet in the run-up to the 2021-22 offseason lockout, but by all accounts, they are preparing for a teardown which will see the core of their 2017-21 teams scattered throughout the league, as they seek to reorganize and accumulate young talent.

The general manager, David Forst, readily recognized this reality and told reporters early in the offseason:

This is the A’s cycle. We have to listen and be open to everything that comes out of this. This is our destiny in Oakland until it is. “

Unsurprisingly, much of the attention has focused on the big names that will be highly coveted by other clubs: first baseman Matt Olson, third baseman Matt Chapman, left-hander Sean Manaea, right-hander Chris Bassitt and Frankie Montas. .

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, the LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
