Welcome to The G.O.A.B. — aka The Greatest of All Blogs.
I’m Alex Espinoza and I started this bad boy in June 2020 after spending 2010-18 hanging around the Oakland Coliseum and AT&T Park as a freelance reporter for MLB.com, The Athletic and the Associated Press. I also spent a few seasons roaming around with a camera and cell phone creating in-stadium content for MLB.com and MLB’s Cut4 as a Real-Time Correspondent.
During those seasons I got to know so many characters connected to the A’s franchise, from fans to security guards to players, coaches, media members, front-office folks and others behind the scenes that make the team so special.
Through this blog and podcast we’d love to bring you closer to the A’s — Oakland’s last big-league ballclub, baby! Thanks for stopping by.
