Well, we’re taking the plunge.  Starting with this inaugural post, the Oakland A’s public relations department is officially joining Baseball’s Blogosphere.  Somehow, our fine organization has deemed me worthy of authoring this little ditty. 

That said, let me introduce myself.  My name is Bob Rose and I’m the Athletics’ Director of Public Relations.  I know what you might be thinking…..”Oh no, this guy is the team’s ‘Spinmeister.’  He’ll be trying to sugar-coat everything.”

I say, not true!  Okay, maybe a little, but I promise to “keep it real” as much as a PR Director can.  Let me share with you our goals with this new initiative.   Beyond providing some behind-the-scenes anecdotes and observations, we want to establish a credible, transparent connection with our fans.  While we have plenty of positive developments to discuss, we also are here to face the music.  And even though you may care deeply about the Green & Gold, we realize you may also have complaints or concerns about the Oakland Athletics.  This is where you can come to engage in honest dialogue about your team.  Hopefully, I can address many of the hot topics during this offseason and also give you a deeper perspective on the inner workings of a professional baseball team.  I want to give you the information from inside the clubhouse and front office meetings, as I hold a position in the organization which affords me such access. 

So, here we go.
