Game 1: A’s v White Sox-Dawn of Something 188

So, we are here yet again. Well, some of us are here. I imagine a bunch of us as usual are heading to the OACC and enjoying a proper watching of big flags and long introductions.

For us NRAFs and those averse to big crowds however we have a real Game thread. I have gone so far as to learn how to use media systems on my laptop to make up for my lack of cable.

Here is your lineup:

    If you click over to fangraphs live scoreboard, they already show the White Sox with a 50.7% win probability. And that is with Sonny Gray still listed as the starter. I think I liked win probability better when it was less editorial.

      I thought there would be a couple more. In addition to Sheets and Hill, three others in Oakland history.

    All three of those pitches to Coghlan looked like strikes to me. Perhaps he should try swinging at one of them.

    • mother pucker Apr 4,2016 10:19 pm || Up

      Agree.

      And further, could he not deduce that the 2nd pitch, which was in an identical location to the 1st pitch was called a strike, ergo the 3rd pitch which was in the exact same location as the 2nd pitch, is also gonna be a called fking strike.

    The A’s only win on Opening Night once per decade, they’ve already had their win for the 2010’s, so I’m glad they didn’t waste a Gray start on this one. Rich Hill sucks, but history shows he won’t make more than 5 starts before he goes on the DL and we’re already rid of one of them.

      Three runs off of Sale and 6+ shutout innings from the pen is more than I hoped for going in.

      The terrible defense and baserunning boners though…

      • colin colin Apr 5,2016 10:35 am || Up

        I came out of the game more optimistic than I went in. The offense should be decent, there is some talent on the pitching side, and no one in the AL west looks overwhelming. But I agree that this team won’t get anywhere unless they stop making stupid mistakes.

        • andeux andeux Apr 5,2016 10:45 am || Up

          I don’t see the defense improving much. Apart from Reddick, Alonso when he is in, and maybe the catchers, this is just a bad fielding team.

                  Oh my god, I was not previously aware of Canha’s absurd reverse split. He should never play first base this year.

                  Relatedly, Khris Davis also has slightly reverse splits. Canha may need to platoon with Butler in order to add value.

                  i do not understand his role. Unless butler gets released

    Khris Davis appears to swing for the fences every time.

        He was very amped up during the pregame intros. Maybe once he chills out a little bit he will be able to tone down his approach with the tying runner on second.

        They are very busy with a “get to know us” post that seems to indicate they have about 30 people on the site. I know it’s more than us, but wow.

        And I am doing my best to be mature and not comment.

        Our goal is to celebrate a diversity of ideas and of people on Athletics Nation.

    What’s the verdict on Burns’ jump/route on Eaton’s triple? Tough play but it seemed like Coco or Fuld might get there.

    • dmoas Apr 5,2016 10:47 am || Up

      He didn’t look good on that one at all. Seemed like he kept slowing and looking for it. Definitely a bad read on it.

    • futwork futwork Apr 6,2016 1:51 am || Up

      Froze on contact, then went back with his head up instead of running to the spot. Tough when it’s right over your head, but it was a catchable ball.

  80. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 5,2016 10:44 am

    The part of the game I enjoyed most was Lawrie getting picked off, beating the throw to second, and then being out because he slid into the tag like an asshole because he can’t help trying to injure someone.

    I am so glad he’s not on the team anymore.

    • Soaker Soaker Apr 5,2016 11:01 am || Up

      He and the Royals get to face each other 19 times this season.

    Busy day for Torres.

    If this is His will, He's a son of a bitch.

        Suarez should have joined him (and may yet).

        Good. He probably earned 3-4 yellows.

        Also, FK Atleti. 10 in the box? I’m glad they conceded. I hope Barca drop 5 on them in the 2nd half

          Messi and Neymar together is unfair, but with Suarez it’s just stupid.

            You know on 1 hand you give Atletico credit for that defense, but holy FK is it stupid to watch a team bunker down with 11 in the box for 70 minutes.

            • AV AV Apr 14,2016 12:22 am || Up

              makes for a logic 101 test question: if the defense is in the box and that handball is on the defense, is the handball in the box?

              • MikeV MikeV Apr 14,2016 12:36 am || Up

                While true… when the ball played for the handball in the box was played by the guy who should have been sent off for his own handball in the box, did it really happen?

                TBH the ref was crap on both sides most of the match, and like I said give Atletico credit, but damn as someone who plays as an attacker that’s just horrible to watch.

      Marcus Paige was a great Tar Heel.

      I saw Nova’s buzzer beater go through the cords and immediately walked out of the Westside Club to my seats. If it’s up to me I’ll never see the replay.
