Front Row Seats 2014 213

You know the drill – the two best seats in the Coliseum and a VIP parking pass, with the proviso that they go to A’s fans at face value. By my reckoning the package will be $94 for most games and $84 for free parking Tuesdays. The full schedule is here. Post your requests in ...

Mad Men – Season 7, Episode 2 – Changes

The episode had more than a few shining moments.

The Lounge where we take a running jump. 216

Hey! The A’s are taking names and making errors…but still winning games with pitchers I’ve never heard of. So, sit back and relax and lounge away.

Game 18: He is risen 99

Josh Reddick I mean. Back to life. Jesse Chavez washes his hands of a rocky first inning and the A’s prepare to pick up their pieces of the one true cross and hit against he Astros. Keep your sacred brooms at the ready. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money ...

With extra bonus fearsome toothy Sharks. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."

Game 15 thread: Athletics try to sweep the Scioscias 189

The finale of the road trip sees the A’s go for their eighth win in nine games. My quick and dirty research shows that the previous seven-win road trip was in 2005, a 7-3 run through Detroit, Baltimore and Anaheim from August 23-September 1. You can probably guess when the last eight-win trip happened: 10-0 ...

Giving the Angels a head start.

Dude, Where’s My Game 13 Thread? 329

Gentry CF, Lowrie SS, Donaldson 3B, Cespedes LF, Norris C, Callaspo DH, Punto 2B, Reddick RF, Barton 1B w. Chavez P A’s down 1-0 in bottom of 1st, RBI single from Pujols, not a horrible pitch by Chavez who also threw some nasty looking pitches to Trout. I can’t tell you what the A’s did ...

Mad Men – Season 7, Episode 1 – Different, but the Same (with bonus Justified review) 29

I had seen a few reviews of the first episode of the two-part last season of Mad Men, and I didn’t share the sense that this was a great one.
