What A’s Insiders To Follow On Twitter


The 2014 regular season is nearing upon us. The A’s have won back-to-back AL West championships and are poised to make a run at a third. There are still some roster spots up for grabs though, injuries to sort out, and during the season all the news that happens. It can be hard to keep up with it all. Twitter is a valuable resource for all things A’s and to be able to keep up with all the musings that go on. With that being said, here is a list of the best twitter feeds to follow for the upcoming season, including a reason why they made the list.

@susanslusser Susan is the A’s main beat writer at the San Francisco Chronicle and consistently answers fans questions even if she is busy. One of the best in the business without a doubt.

@JaneMLB Jane is MLB.com’s A’s correspondent. She does the majority of the content on the A’s website and also answers a lot of fans questions.

@JohnSheaHey John is the back up beat reporter when Susan is out. He answers A’s fans every once in awhile, but still is a good follow.

@JoeStiglichCSN Joe is the new A’s insider for CSN. He’s quietly rose through the ranks and become an excellent follow.

@Chris_Gabel and @TylerEmerick Both back up Jane when she is away. Young guys, but solid information.

@JHickey3 John is the beat writer for the Bay Area News Group. Great guy always on point.

@oakclubhouse Melissa runs the site Oakland Clubhouse. Costs money (not the twitter feed obviously), but she is awesome. Another person who will always answer questions.

@Cu_As writes about the A’s minor league happenings and is centered in Arizona where most of the A’s new draft picks go. Excellent follow.

Outside of them be sure to follow all of us here at the Swingin’ A’s. Always here to answer questions and keep you up to date!

Following everyone here will keep you on the pulse of the A’s day to day business, news, injuries, etc. If you know of any others or didn’t see someone on the list you think should be comment below!
