Game 28: The 4/30 nightcap 253

The bozo commenter who is anal enough to post “standings” tracking the records of game-thread posters will now self-punish by sucking in a Jarrod Parker start. On the Coliseum to Raley Field continuum, I’d say Parker is hanging out at Murder Burger in Davis. (Is that still there?) Anaheim right-hander Garrett Richards, in his fourth ...

Tuesday Grill: Fables of the Reconstruction 238

Feeling Gravity’s Pulled Hamstring. Nothing fancy, just a new grill in which we can comment on the wholesale reshaping of the rosters which should be happening any moment now. Hickey of the Trib: The A’s won’t know until at least later Tuesday the status of Crisp, Young or Anderson. It’s likely they’ll be calling in ...

Game… 27, I guess? The one on Monday (I think) 4/29/13? 770

On my way to cook, eat, and clean up after dinner before resuming work and maybe watching a baseball game out of the corner of my eye. Thought those of you who also aren’t at the game might like a new game thread! And I didn’t see one in the drafts. I have nothing substantial ...

Game 26: Colon attempts to cleanse the crap, stop the losing streak (the sequel) 281

(This is being posted early so I can claim the title I wanted, and to make some new room for the moves today.) I’m not liking this pattern of Colon trying to be the stopper. Let’s quit it, A’s. Okay? ICYMI, Straily will start for Anderson tomorrow, who is being skipped because of that bum…ankle. ...

Game 25: Is this thing on? 79

Reggie’s first team vs. Reggie’s second team. Scoreless after 1.

I’ll eventually post lineups. Crisp (DH), Young (CF), Reddick (RF), Lowrie (2B), Donaldson (3B), Norris (C), Frieman (1B), Wells (LF), Rosales (SS) VS. Markakis (RF), Machado (3B), Jones (CF), Davis, (1B), Wieters (C), Hardy (SS), Reimold (LF), Pearce (DH), Casilla (2B) Tommy Milone for the A’s. Wei-Yin Chen for the non-A’s

The Lounge where it’s much too late for goodbyes. 315

Wait…did I just quote a Julian Lennon song in the lounge title? Yep, and I did it while wearing a Stella McCartney dress. Come lounge away…

Game #23 TWTW v. the Saint Louis Browns 228

Hawk says we need the will to win Crisp, Jaso, Smith, Lowrie, Moss, Young, Redick Donaldson, Sogard Jarrod TWTW Parker v. pretty birds.

FKing Suite Day / FK Gate – 6/15 138

All, It sounds like we have settled on Saturday 6/15 (4:15 pm start vs. Seattle, also Beerfest) for a combo FK-Gate and Suite Day. FSU EDIT: If you want to buy in for tickets with the group, please RSVP in the comments and say how many you want by Wednesday May 1. Price and location ...

The Grill where Stomper sues the GOP 141

The Republican Party facillitated the actions of dirtbag hacker/sextortionist by affording him the perfect cover of an elephant costume on the Gingrich campaign. This clearly did irreparable damage to the Stomper name brand, which has been carefully cultivated for years to build market value based on innocence and purity. Hella lost revenue damages. Also loss ...
