WC Game 2: Deeper than the shit we’re in 232

Now the Twins, that’s a team whose shit really doesn’t work in the playoffs. Ours can and has and will again. It’s another perfect day in the best place on earth. Yeah there’s more smoke and the eyes burn a little, and those cracks in the foundation got a lot bigger and that stupid fucking ...

WC Game 1: A’s vs. White Sox 186

Luzardo vs. Giolito La Stella, Grossman, Semien, Olson, Canha, Lamb, Laureano, Pinder, Murphy. Go.

Games 57-60: Looks like we made it 214

None of us, or at least not many, thought the Major League Baseball season would still be going on the weekend of September 25-27. This is the Barry Manilow of baseball series and with perfect Sierra weather, which won’t be around much longer, tonight’s game is probably the only one I’ll see much of. There’s ...

Lads in green versus LAD 95

I confess that I think Dodger blue is beautiful. We’ve not done so great against National League teams this year, discounting the AAA team across the bay. Every series thread I’ve put up this year so far has been a sweep, one way or another. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better ...

Games 51-53: Babe, Ruth! 169

Part II of the 2020 Bay Bridge Series, with the A’s entering with a magic number of 2 vs. the Mariners to clinch a playoff spot, and 4 vs. the Astros for the division. The Mariners are “home” in San Diego for three while the Astros host Arizona. Tonight: Logan Webb vs. Chris Bassitt Saturday ...

Games 49-50: Into Thin Air 160

The A’s are in Denver for a two-game series with the Rockies. T: Manaea vs. Senzatela, 5:40 PM W: Fiers vs. German Marquez, 12:10 PM Fiers is not the ideal pitcher for Coors Field. On the other side, those are the same two pitchers who beat us at the Coliseum at the end of July.

Games 47-48: .116/.240/.140, that’s sort of baaaad 147

But hey, welcome Jake! Try not to suck. Game 1 at 2:10: Luzardo vs. Marco Gonzales Game 2: Minor vs. “Servais said the Game 2 starter will be determined by how the first game goes.” We’re back into the smoke for 5 or 6 hours: Current conditions here at T-Mobile Park pic.twitter.com/JSER37f8RY — Ryan Divish ...

Waiting for it to blow over TX 43-46 173

For the next week the A’s will be out of california, wew can hope the smoke is gone by the time they get back. Texas is a welcome reprieve. I don’t think seattle is bad, at least my seattle friends are not posting ashy pictures to social media, Colorado should be good by next week? ...

Astros for 4.55, ending with game 43? 362

Everyone will pitch but Fiers. No Chapman, no Semien to start. They may get bregman back. 2 of the next five should be good enough to stay in first for a while.

Games 35-37: TGIFriarsday 172

Athletics baseball returns after nearly a week off. F: Luzardo vs. Zach Davies Sa: Manaea vs. Chris Paddack Su: Fiers vs. Garrett Richards Semien is still out so La Machin gets the start at SS. La Stella in at 2B again. The Padres have Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado, and a bunch of guys for ...
