To be clear: I am not at all optimistic about anything.
Mengden after the break.
We all saw that coming.
oooo, just remembered I can listen to Jerry Howreth
careless whisper is back
lol, Bob Melvin approves.
Does Kelly post here? Cuz BB RK news…
the most active of our era people post in a facebook group called the lounge.
would mean face book for you
Just saw this- ty. But I don’t do facebook. I follow her on Twitter but rarely log in. Guess I’ll have to reach her.
This site is just being cruel not letting me edit, lol. “have to” “to reach her”.
Slusser sez we will be seeing lots of Healy and Smolinski, less of Crisp and maybe Valencia. Sounds good to me (and less Butler please). Healy (like Mengden) wasn’t on anyone’s top 10 A’s prospects at the beginning of the year, but killed it at both AA and AAA. Unfortunately the other hitting prospects haven’t done well enough so far to rate a promotion.
can smolinski play center?
We are about to find out.
he played one game there before the break but as i recall wasn’t tested
The front office told Melvin “go ahead and play Coco as much as you want, he’ll break eventually and won’t get close to 130 games”. But now they are getting nervous about it.
alanso saw the papers
naturally, hit ground out walk walk wildpitch
his last hr as an athletic
I think Reddick will last the entire homestand, the hope being somebody’s LH-hitting outfielder gets hurt in the next 10 days to two weeks. Hill is the one who must be dealt ASAP.
that is why he is not starting, yeah?
I’d think some trace of the “blister” would still be visible…unless it never existed at all :-O . They bought themselves a couple extra days.
Hush your mouth! And hi!
Sometimes, men have to die.
now hendriks will show them what they are missing
blue jays radio says semien checked up and that this one is a ball too
Probably wouldn’t make a difference in the game outcome, but good R’hllor this umpire sucks.
He was paid off by nefarious Canadian gamblers.
Suck It Russell Martin.
I can live with a loss tonight but not tomorrow.
are you leaving the zoo tomorrow?
I’m not allowed out of the zoo.
Someone please remind me to bring the chickens in at 9 Pm. Thanks!
10 minute warning
Okay, next commercial break. THANK YOU!
OMG! Power, baby.
My interest in seeing what the rookies can do does not extend to Andrew Triggs.
Doc, I upvote your comment.
The chickens are in the house. If you know what I mean.
the chickens are in the house?
I’m so transparent.
Meanwhile I keep having to pet my pigeon who wants to mate. Pigeons, right?
I knew you would understand.
Wait, why was Mengden taken out? Pitch count?
he was kinda bad today.
Thanks. And here I thought he was earning the Rollie ‘stache.
oh, he is
blue jays guy are worried
Arrived at gym and stopped listening as it was 7-3. Just got home. This is nice.
yet mark wegner is not having a good game
Jays TV guys said he has been “pretty consistent”. Consistently screwing us I say…
that is how my supervisor defended me to a coach who complained about my umpiring when I was 14 years old.
We’re probably both stronger now- let’s beat him up!
the kids I was umpiring were 11, it was so dumb
Innit? But then there’s the bullpen.
Just found poop between the letters J an K on my keyboard. Pigeon jokes suck.
have you seen the new john doe book? haven’t read it yet myself
No, tell me more.
compilation of remembrances by people in the LA scene in the 70/80s edited by john doe. sounds fun.
I feel I’m missing out on a joke. sorry.
not excited by dull going 2
Is it fair of Ray to call Donaldson and is .420 OBP “always aggressive”? As I type this, I guess the answer is “yes”?
Suck it Canada!
never in doubt
HAAAHHH! I mean, I believe in Stephen Vogt.
Apparently tomorrow is Hello Kitty Bobblehead day, and I have the front row seats with my father-in-law. Anyone want a pair of HKBs?
I’d like one but I live out in the boonies. Of course I’d pay shipping but I understand if someone else wants it and lives locally. Though I love cats and the A’s and Japan and it is my birthday. But for real I don’t want to make it a hassle for ya so don’t worry about it in that case.
my phone is going to remind me
Your phone is so thoughtful.
One is yours – just send an address to jdborrill at lbl dot gov.
Any takers for the other? Jennifer?
Lil Miss Aces would love it if available.
I’ll shoot you my new address.
You’ve got it.
Sent. I’m a little embarrassed I so shamelessly used my bday. But I’m excited about the bobblehead! Thanks again ptbnl.
Received, and 2 bobbleheads in hand that will go out next week.
I thought I saw you when everybody stood up with two outs in the 9th.
Really wish the A’s made a play for Yulieski Gourriel. He’s 31, but he legitimately hit .500/589/.874 in Cuba last year with 15 home runs over 49 games. And drew 33 BBs to 3 Ks. That’s insane.
Against this lineup, Darwin Barney and Josh Thole should not be the ones who kill you.
Sonny is working on things. If this was March, no big deal…
RYON FKIN’ HEALY!
Sonny looks pretty bad.
Yeah – not impressive.
Baseball is such a weird game.
never in doubt. Unlike the 16-15 nailbiter I just played at san quentin
I’m imagining Shortstop Ed looking nervously into the other team’s dugout as his former clients are sharpening their spikes, Ty Cobb style.
i do have people there, but none have yard with gp. the are at reception awaiting final destination.
the guys on the team are nice.
“Final destination”…probably a phrase that ought to be avoided there.
I light heartily said they’d better win because of my birthday. Then immediately started to obsess over how many Toronto fans were also celebrating birthdays.
they’ll be fine
So all the Quakes needed was 2 red cards so they would be playing with 9 men, then they win their first game in 2 months.
Thanks, and go As.
LOL Jairo Garcia

I can’t watch this enough.
meh, rosales and norris are hard to look at
They’re very easy to look at in other uniforms.
Unlike a certain Blue Jays 3B.
I think the return is the problem. not his laundry. Billy beane was correct that Donaldson was not going to save 2015, and by this year, he would be one foot out the door anyway, but he had 2 years of MVP behavior and has had 2 more subsequent to that. getting sean nolin and kendal gravemen and brett lawrie was just dumb, but by July 17, 2016, we would have had very little of rain bringing to look forward to.
wow, that was a shitty sentence.
/the one thing you don’t want to hear from your favorite defense lawyer.
Thank you, Karnak.
Well hey, at least we turned around and dealt Lawrie for 2 nobodies.
I’m guessing the initials of Slusser’s “source” would be either BB or DF, so it’s nice to see that “Butler” and “designating him for assignment” are in the same sentence.
The Aâ€™s will not try to add designated hitter Billy Butlerâ€™s contract into any trade this summer, according to a source. The team wants to maximize its talent for the future, and the $15 million left on Butlerâ€™s deal is not a consideration….With Butler relegated to platoon DH duty, at some point the club might have to consider designating him for assignment, although that might not happen this season.

That was fast (TWSS).
I guess this 15 day DL stint due to the blister is relatively better for Hill’s trade value than re-pulling his groin?
It’s almost a positive. Nobody would think Hill has more than 10 starts remaining, and he’s not wasting them with the A’s.
Yeah. I would have liked for him to have a showcase, but at least he is not damaged in a major way.
Sounds like this game is going swimmingly.
It worked out pretty well for Triggs. He was en route to throwing 4 innings and then catching a plane to join the Sounds in Albuquerque tomorrow.
In addition to being shut out by him, spelling your name “J.A.” and pronouncing it “Jay” is pretty f’ing annoying as well.
Well, the spelling is now only slightly less annoying.
It’s quite pleasing that the pinch-hitter for Butler did the damage.
Curious decision by Gibbons remove Happ there. At worst, you are left with Happ vs. Butler.
It is nice that second half of the season JC is not just an Oakland thing.
The borderline all-star SS colliding with the recently called up, and quasi exciting, 3B and knocking them both out for an extended time would have been a nice twist.
ok, not only was it the confusing vince call on the foul pop, but he noted seemingly somewhere before he called the action that Davis and healy had collided. soon after the play he corrected that it was semien.
Um vince, Black players don’t all look alike.
That was bound to happen eventually.
Who among us did not see that coming?
46 months in prison for the Cardinals exec who logged into the Astros’ scouting database by guessing a password of a former Cardinals employee (possibly Jeff Luhnow) who had moved to the Astros.
that sems like a lot for somone with no record. lots of downward departures available.
Yeah I agree. For fucking MLB scouting reports? He should’ve swindled $100 million instead and walked for time served.
If we had a functioning Congress, I would hope that CFAA reform would be near the top of their agenda. It’s a little scary out there right now.
