I do not think Peterson leaving will have much of an impact on the A's big three or Harden and Blanton for that matter.
Peterson's knowledge has aided in turning Hudson, Mulder and Zito into a collective pitching diety. Thier understanding of pitching combined with the Athletic's state of the art pitching facilities and whomever the A's can bring in to replace Rick will be plenty for anyone to thrive on or under.
After all, would the A's really part with Peterson if they knew it would kill their three headed $38.2 million investment?

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.
I heard Peterson get interviewed on a NY radio station today and he just rambled on and on forever. They had to almost cut him off. He sounds very intelligent along the lines of biomechanics and stuff like that. He should do well for the Mets.

Who is "we"? And it is my understanding--isn't that right, Pkarr--that Oakland has a little trouble closing out playoff series.
If Oakland would keep their bats instead of letting them go every year, they might actually win something eventually. From the looks of it, when they start to lose the big 3, they will start getting some bats. Gotta have both to win.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
And the one bat that they ever took on serious cash (Jermaine Dye) has layed one big egg. Not that it stops me from drafting him every single year
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.
