Monkey rage 149

Christ, what a trainhole Nice, but needs an app I’m pretty sure that 3 or 4 of these guys have played infield for the A’s over the last decade FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU BURNED THE ALTERNATE JERSEYS!!! Players started yelling "Fire!" Everyone thought it was a joke at first, but you could see a yellow glow from across ...

Bitch Wolff 95.7 chat chat thread 2

Thought we could segregate this from the game thread proper. ML’s quick wrapup. My choice WTF takeaway: OT – Feels that 49ers and Raiders should share a stadium.

Game 81, Nolasco vs. Moscoso, Marlins @ A’s 39

It will be either 37-44 or 36-45 for the first half of the season…but that puts the A’s 5, 6 or 7 games behind Texas. What, it’s not raining in the Bay Area this afternoon?!? #Athletics vs Fla: Weeks 2B, Pennington SS, Coco CF, Matsui DH, Jackson 1B, Sweeney LF, Suzuki C, DeJesus RF, Sizemore ...

The Waste Land 204

Mindless compliance 53

#Athletics at #Phillies: Weeks 2b, Pennington ss, Sweeney cf, Matsui lf, Jackson 1b, DeJesus rf, Suzuki c, Sizemore 3b, Moscoso 1 — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) June 24, 2011 Moscoso-Worley sounds like a wonkish bit of finreg legislation that’ll eventually pass the House in watered-down form: “Series 7, Moscoso-Worley Compliant”
