Every single move Rizzo has made this year has backfired.

Signing Rosenthal and trading for Barraclough.

Anibal Sanchez instead of Tanner Roark. Although we got Tanner Rainey out of the deal but he is inconsistent.

Dozier instead of LeMathieu.

Keeping Michael Taylor over Brian Goodwin who is raking.

Trading Lucas Giolito for Adam Eaton.

Releasing Trevor Gott, Brandon Kintzler, Shawn Kelly, Yusmerio Petit and Craig Stammen.

Not resigning Greg Holland.

Trading away Blake Treinen and Felipe Vasquez.

He lucked into signing Scherzer and drafting Harper, Strasburg and Rendon. Found Soto and Robles and the TreaTurner trade has looked good but that's literally it in his stay here as a GM.
the Matt Capps for Ramos trade. was the biggest coup not Turner.
Also Trienen has been crap for the A's this year

He's the best catcher we've ever had! Even better than our Ring of Honor guy Pudge. Retire his number!

I will reserve judgement on Adams for a bit.  Relievers are a fickle bunch prone to highs and lows.

my first thought was that they would go after Rizzo if they did not go internal / alumni
