The Oakland Athletics announce long-term contract extensions for for Billy Beane, David Forst and Bob Melvin, prompting me to do an "emergency A's Noise" live from the Oakland Coliseum Bart station on my way to work. I only had one minute til my train arrived, so here are some more details that I didn't have time to get in....

Per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle Melvin’s deal runs through the end of 2021 and pays him $3.5 million per season, up from the reported figure of $2.5 million he made a season ago.

Forst’s extension goes through 2023, but no details of Beane’s pact have been revealed.

I hope to see some players locked up next.....

Also awaiting the November 4th announcements for Gold Glove winners!
