FAIL-off: Sheets vs Patterson 24

A’s trailing 3-2 to the O’s. Wait — WTF just happened on that play?

Spillover Grill 49

1. The Democrat hits lefty.. Also: Said GOP team captain Joe Barton (R-Texas), “The most important thing about tonight is that we exceeded our charitable goal by so much. The Boys and Girls Club are the real winners here.” But in another, more real sense, the Democrats were the winners: 13-5. 2. If you wish ...

A’s at Orioles 24

Mazzaro vs Matusz. Braden scratched with “stiff elbow” (maybe he should try boiling it in salted water?). Sweeknee out. Geren goes rightie-crazy.

Well, they were getting hammered Approaching meteor/puny forearms Let me get this straight, Ray: you’re going to criticize Braden for his torturous metaphors? Also: “well-eyed grounders”? Rangers bankruptcy not quite so bad, but they still prolly can’t afford Oswalt (not that it matters any more anyway) they melt into something creamy and delicious that you ...

Early game thread + groverbaiting/slusterbating 52

No Cust again today, again vs a RHSP. Jackson at DH, Gross in RF, Rajai in LF. Crisp leading off. And Rosales gives Cliffy (at least?) one day off. Byg Twyt speculates a roster shakeup a-comin’ — I agree. The Fox/Patterson DFAs were likely the initial volley. He thinks Cust is gone in a couple ...

A’s vs Reds 14
