June 19, 2006 CBS SportsLine.com wire reports
OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics agreed to a one-year contract with left-handed reliever Scott Sauerbeck on Monday, one day after Steve Karsay announced his retirement and opened a spot in the bullpen.
Sauerbeck was scheduled to join the A's in Denver on Monday night for the opener of a three-game interleague series with the Colorado Rockies.
The 34-year-old Sauerbeck, in his seventh big league season, went 0-1 with a 6.23 ERA in 24 relief appearances for Cleveland this season before being designated for assignment June 9 and then unconditionally released June 16.

Big Paper Daddy: Why did the Jags let Fournette just walk?

bnabreaker: Because they're the Jags and they are immune to quality and competence.

Big Paper Daddy: you got 2 recent super bowls!

kfilament: True, true. But man, outside of those 2 seasons it has been BLEAK. On a related note, we are retiring Eli's jersey this weekend here at Ole Miss. And playing LSU. We will probably lose by 40

Big Paper Daddy: Eli's career is hard to figure out; HOF for two Super Bowls but he was BAD outside those two years as well

kfilament: yeah, decidedly average. Didn't help that their GM was a total shitshow in terms of team building. Also, they should have turned the page on Eli about 3 years before they did.
