Last series was the least likely outcome of the season.
Do it again?
This is kinda fun. Cool start and all.
That inning looked like so many over the last month, but with the crappy team wearing red.
Lester good. Oakland bad.
Guess this is what the A’s needed.
Goofy star wars costumes?
The Star Wars music between innings is surprisingly delightful.
it’s pretty hard to fuck up a rag.
[lets it sit there]
Nice to have the BABIP gods with us for a change.
Not really. Maybe they allowed Crisp’s hit but they harshly denied Fuld and Donaldson.
Da fuck? What are you doing here?
I have to work late from my station. Game is on and since I already wrote a bit earlier today… why not visit for a bit?
Good. This place could use you.
You flatter me.
That was the edited version.
I’m an engaged man… edited is probably the way to go.
What this place needs is more two-out base hits to drive in runs. Maybe a few non-futile bases-loaded/no-out situations.
Callaspo to be cut.
Congrats. (and welcome back, at least for today)
And those are good diagnoses.
You still have time to add to it.
I’d just feel like a cheap whore now.
Good news! If you go cheap enough you are not a whore.
They don’t do pro bono work?
rim shot. (or does that cost extra?)
If you’re still in Pollock Pines…yeah, 9 to 5 probably isn’t happening right now.
I’m in Pollock but my engine is not assigned to the King. Staging for Initial Attack.
I’m working 8 to 8 every day.
Why isnt Lowrie hitting 9th? I might be off a little here, but i think 100% of his ABs the past week have been with runners on and he has done everything except gag himself on the fat end of the bat.
Ok, so I was going to complain about Norris and his pitch calling giving up these HRs. But then I reached for my inner Fosse. If Lester isnt 100% sure he agrees he shakes it off.
So why the hell cant we stop giving up HRs?
How great would it be if we could stop giving up HRs?
Ive got DIBS on that.
I feel better having Vogt out there. He comforts me.
Sounds like maybe you believe in him.
I’m still kind of hoping that Revere wins the NL batting title. Just not with our help.
I DON’T BELIEVE MY EARS!
Try to steal on Lester-Norris. Please.
And on that note, Mr. Revere, I’m heading home.
If they lose in your absence, we will blame you.
Do I get credit for the win?
No because you left before you finished 5 innings. But I do think you may be eligible for a Hold.
As long as you bill that 2 minutes of OT
3 run on site dirty hat A’s mojo!
On site dirty mind 5 run mojo!
FSU might be drunk.
we’ll see if he comes back with an unsightly dirty underwear runs/mojÃ³n…
Pics or stfu.
It’s an Upgrade family game. I can’t possibly get drunk enough.
We’ll see how it goes, but it’s unlikely that Lester is pitching a complete game. That means the bullpen. Any suggestions?
Just have him get through 7. Honeycutt for the 8th and Eck the 9th.
I don’t mind matching up with Gene Nelson if needed.
Leadoff triple. That might help.
Way to go, [Jedi pun]!
It occurs to me that if the A’s were to finish in a tie for the second wild card, Lester would be on turn to pitch Game 163, and with a win it would be Hammel/Pomeranz in the wild card game.
If it’s against the Mariners, I would definitely go with Pomeranz because he’s left-handed. (The A’s wouldn’t face Felix, at least as a starter.)
If it’s the Royals or Tigers, I don’t know.
Runners on third with less than two outs seems to make A’s hitters as uneasy as it makes me.
Coco makes it a little better.
Typical. Coco gets a hit after the inept safety squeeze.
We all know that hit doesn’t come if there were a runner on third.
Loved the squeeze call, given our futility of late. Hated the execution. Learn to deaden the ball, meat.
It wasn’t a terrible idea at all.
Except for Lowrie being the baserunner.
I wasn’t really sure what the A’s plan was there. Safety squeeze, I guess. But the third baseman was closer to the plate than Lowrie. It really didn’t work. It’s just not what the A’s are good at.
Had Burns been in there it would have been a run. But had he been in there it would have telegraphed the squeeze. Fuck you Lowrie and your slowness.
The worst part of the squeeze was that I knew that, no matter what we did, it would be the wrong option.
The A’s are constitutionally incapable of scoring more than 3 runs in a game.
I really think Luke needs to just go with the full Rollie.
Or use the Force.
TRUST THE FOURS!!
O’Flaherty makes so much sense with all these lefties up…
Helllloooo….its the 8th INNING.
Woot! Way to go JD.
Any chance Lester can pitch every game?
That was courageous.
Nice play by Donaldson and Norris.
way to go.
Nice play, Donnie!
He needed that after the pop up.
The Phillies pitching coach was on my bucket of chicken. WTF?
Just get rid of JL08 now. Or have him hit leadoff so he doesnt hit as often with runners on since he obviously cant.
Heh, no rush…
Dude, Norris is slow, but he’s not THAT slow.
they really are playing like the A’s of last series.
Lew looks like he has been drinking with FSU.
Also, D No with the wheels!
Oh joy. Bases loaded again. This won’t possibly end without a run.
Really want to say good stuff about Petaluma plz…
It smells like Manure.
Dude I grew up down thecstreet from the Fresno State farms, I might not even notice.
It’s just never recovered after it lost the Wide World of Sports Armwrestling Championship.
Gomes is hitting .232 with the A’s? It feels like he hasn’t hit the ball hard since he’s been here.
Time to sweat out another Doolittle 9th inning. No disrespect. I just don’t think he is right yet.
.yeah, I cant remember more than 1-2 Gomes hits, let alone big ones.
6 strikes to work with and Gomes still can’t do anything.
Your 2014 2nd half Oakland A’s: Triple, Single, Walk -> no runs Walk, Walk, Single -> no runs
Excellent play by Donaldson on both ends.
JD with the glove tonight!
it’s a celebration!
Whoppty Doo. They beat a shitty team while plenty poor themselves.
Ballgame! Let’s make it a good series.
It’s a win. Every win is good.
We still have High Hopes.
Let’s all celebrate, and have a good time.
The Angels are throwing three left-handed starters at the A’s next week? Oh, good. Our right-handed lineup.
It was great being at the park tonight. Part of a group all rooting hard together for good things to happen…most refreshing. I recommend it highly.
you could hear the energy through the broadcast.
It just felt good to be cheering for the A’s to do well and not perpetually moaning that things are sure to go badly. Personally, I need much more of the former and have had far too much of the latter, around here, of late.
perhaps the starwars/fireworks night brought in a lot of children and other pure fans of the heart not of the brain, that, indeed, were not there to moan.
there was at least one instance when the stream showed a can o corn mid-deep, but on the radio sounded as if millions tens of thousands of voices suddenly cried out in furor. and were suddenly silenced.
First fireworks/selloutish game in a long time where there was NO WAVE.
Also known as a disturbance in the Force.
I want to believe. But scoring in one inning, check. Threaten and fail multiple times, check. Barely edge out a shitty team, check. We can’t be world beaters in all games, so there’s that, but this still looks like the frustratingly bad team we’ve watched the second half of the season and not a group that’s figuring it out. :(
You might be right. But it seemed like we had a lot more “one hit aways” than we have had recently. I still think Lowrie needs to go to #9/become Parrino even after the triple, but other than that I felt a different vibe. And as crazy as it sounds, maybe it’s just that they all believe in Stephen Vogt.
Either way I am going to try and stay glass half full at least until a bad thing does happen. Maybe I can go buy a Pollyanna wig or something.
I had this dream last night. In it, the A’s won a game.
in dreams. we win. with you.
in dreams. we walk. without having the next three batters strike out. with you.
i can’t help it
Okay win, people.
I just grilled up some red hots for breakfast, so today is a win no matter what.
A few years ago when we got to one of the last games of the season, they were selling most all the items in the merch shops for 50% off. If any of you go to games this week and they’re doing that, can you let me know? I saw some nice hoodies and tees this week, but waaaay to rich for my blood.
I saw something about a tent sale, but I don’t think they’ve done the everything 50% off sale for several years. But you should go to the game on Wednesday anyway.
The breakfast tailgate starts at 9:00 AM!
The tent sale this weekend is not great, unless you really like Cespedes merchandise. Lots of rather ugly caps of various sizes, and cellphone cases for a flip phone for 25 cents.
Except! There is, or was this morning, one CY25 shirsey in XL, $10. It’s the only CY25 shirsey I’ve ever seen, and for all I know it was a test run by the marketing department. Also, there were two or three sweatshirts that seemed to be made for someone who wears 4X and whose arms are six feet long.
aces got a CY25
I bought all of them and I have been wearing them every game since. That isn’t like a curse or something is it?
