Welcome.

Offseason greetings to all in the baseball community, and
welcome to a blog written by your newest A’s beat reporter for MLB.com. My name
is Jane Lee, and I officially joined the A’s full-time beat for MLB.com on
January 18. Hopefully some of you remember me, as I enjoyed a handful of
freelance work covering the A’s during the 2009 season and also worked
alongside former Oakland beat writer Mychael Urban as his associate reporter
the previous year. Thus, having two years of experience on the A’s beat under
my belt, I can assure you nothing but complete and continual coverage of the
A’s that you are used to seeing at MLB.com.

 

I’m beyond excited about this opportunity, and I hope you
join me on the ride by bookmarking this page and making yourself a regular
visitor both here and at the A’s official site. My first week proved plenty
busy, as I reported on the A’s efforts to avoid arbitration with Rajai Davis and newbie
Kevin Kouzmanoff, wrote about Eric Chavez’s new utility role, heard from Coco Crisp and several others at A’s Media Day,
and covered the surprising news of Oakland prospect Grant Desme’s choice to leave baseball and join
the Catholic priesthood. Furthermore, I’m certain Billy Beane isn’t quite done
wheeling and dealing this offseason, so you may be seeing (more) new faces on
the roster before the team and I head to Phoenix in three short weeks for
Spring Training.

 

Here, you can expect any and all news and analysis related
to the team, as well as some fun behind-the-scenes anecdotes and observations
seen on and off the field. Please feel free to leave comments, or e-mail me here. Don’t
forget to follow me on Twitter, either!

Well Im glad to see a new official beat writer I follow very closely and was confused as to why Mr. Urban was no longer on the job wondering if you could enlighten? Excited for the season and the new beats! Cant wait to see your style cause Urb had a pretty interesting style to his beats. Best of luck.

I am happy to be the first to welcome our awesome new A’s reporter. Best of luck on the beat and let us know if you need anything here. Go get ‘em Jane.
