If any A's voice gets tiring..it wouldn't start with Ray. While the Dodgers treat Vin Scully with respect,Billy Beane gets his carpet cleaner or dog walkers to do A's color.
Ray had to have said something truthful one day that Beane couldn't handle. Does A's pub. dept. have any gripes about Ray? No? Doesn't Ray represent when the A's did things right? Ohhhh,maybe THAT'S it.
Beane is the micro-manager at any level. This is what he wants.
