They definitely haven't been playing as well since the trade. I though it was basically a good trade (with risk) for both sides but maybe the X-Factor is gone

"Over-tinkering Nerd" is what Hitler called Beane in the video and I have to say that's my opinion to a tee right now.

I didn't like the trade the MINUTE I found out about it. I think Beane has become way, WAY too full of himself. It was undeniable genius the way he put this current A's team together. Problem is, he's like a gambling addict who just doesn't know when to stop. And "Hitler" had it right again: You can't measure team chemistry with numbers. A's fans are pretty damn depressed right now.
"Hitler" also says, "I hope Tommy Milone is pitching tonight" and you see some of his men twitching nervously because Hitler has yet to find out that Beane has traded Milone, too. Maybe someone can explain THAT one? Milone was their best pitcher for the six weeks before he was traded, 6-0 with an ERA around 2.45, and overall having a great year. So what happens? He was sent to the MINORS, and when he complained about it, Beane then traded him to Minnesota for Sam Fuld. I DON'T GET IT, BILLY!!! Milone may not be in John Lester's class, but he's a lefty just like Lester, and they would NOT have lost him to free agency after this year as they likely will Lester! WHAT'S UP BILLY????

I love these type of Hitler videos even if I don't know what the subject matter is (I don't know baseball).

So, here's the outcome of the Cespedes - Lester trade: Lester pitches single elimination playoff game. Lester struggles early, then pitches really well but gets knocked out by the Royals late in the game. The Oakland A's are out of the playoffs without winning a single game. Lester, who down the stretch pitched REALLY well for them, will now almost certainly be gone because the A's will not want to pay him. Yoenis Cespedes, one of their best power hitters and their clean-up man, is playing for Boston. So what did the A's get out of this? Johnny Gomes. Period. Nothing more. Out of the playoffs and lost one of their best hitters.

Anyone still think Billy Beane is a genius?

I have nothing bad to say about Billy Beane.

You're probably a Red Sox fan. CERTAINLY not as A's fan.

Good guess!

(and if you read/saw Moneyball you know he was almost our GM, so I like him for turning down John Henry as well sending us Cespedes).

Yeah Gondicar, and I think that all the publicity, Moneyball, etc, has gone right to Beane's head. There's an article in today's San Jose Mercury News and Beane defends himself; he actually says that the A's would not have made the playoffs if he hadn't made that trade!! If I can find the article on-line I will add it to this post.

The demarcation is VERY clear: The A's had the BEST record in baseball. He traded Cespedes for Lester, and they completely COLLAPSED. And they couldn't win one playoff game even with Lester pitching. Yet Beane is now defending his actions. Pompous and self-righteous describes him best.

Here's what A's right-fielder Josh Reddick had to say in the article: "Let's hope he doesn't tear this team apart like he's done in the past." For that Reddick, don't expect to be a part of the A's team next year. You don't criticize GOD.
