Oakland Athletics (Fire Billy Beane and get a new ballpark!)

San Francisco 49ers
I work in IT and love Star Wars. I currently live outside of Atlanta.

Favorite Mathewson moment:
Signing Harry Javier and when Hipolito Coronado stole home to beat the Billy Goats this season for the game’s only run.
Team you most dislike to face:
The Chicago Billy Goats (I always think I have a chance!)
One tip you can share with all:
I've been here from day one and never won a playoff game. BUT if you did want some advice, make a plan and stick to it.
Thank You pelot, it looks like that the Elephants are stomping over the AL West this season so far!
