A's pitcher Trevor May criticizes Oakland owner John Fisher in retirement video

Athletics reliever Trevor May passionately calls for Oakland owner John Fisher to sell the team in a viral retirement video.

In a passionate video message, Trevor May, a relief pitcher for the Athletics, expressed his frustration with team owner John Fisher and called for him to sell the franchise. May urged Fisher to let someone who genuinely cares about the game take ownership of the team, criticizing Fisher for not taking pride in his ownership. He even went as far as telling Fisher to "take mommy and daddy's money somewhere else, dork."

Fisher, whose parents founded Gap, Inc., became the majority owner of the A's in 2005. Recently, he has been attempting to relocate the team to Las Vegas after failed negotiations for a new stadium in the Bay Area. This decision has sparked outrage and protests from fans in Oakland.

Adding to the frustration of fans, the Athletics have consistently ranked near the bottom in payroll among MLB teams. The team's record this season was the worst in baseball, finishing with a dismal 50-112.

May didn't hold back his criticism, accusing Fisher of being a greedy individual who is afraid of facing the cameras. He called on Fisher to embrace his greed and own up to it. May acknowledged Fisher's wealth and power as a billionaire but questioned whether he truly earned it.

Trevor May, 34, has had a successful career in baseball, spending his first six seasons with the Minnesota Twins before joining the New York Mets for two seasons. Last season, he had 21 saves for the Athletics with an ERA of 3.28. In his last 15 appearances, he had a perfect record of 1-0 with nine saves and a 0.00 ERA.

It is clear that May's frustrations stem from a deep love for the game and a desire to see the Athletics thrive under new ownership. His emotional plea to Fisher reflects the disappointment felt by fans who are passionate about their team. May's retirement announcement serves as a powerful message that resonates with those who believe the A's deserve better ownership and a brighter future.
