      The Raiders play two games during the A’s next road trip, which means the football stands are in place over the outfield that whole time. That has not happened in several years. It creates the worst field conditions we ever see there. The A’s first game off the trip is the night following the Raiders’ second game so there’s no time to fix the field; all of that time is spent hauling the temporary seating out.

                Another right-handed hitter, Danny Valencia, is 2 for 20 against Quintana and Valencia said Sunday morning, “I’ve never hit him, I don’t know what it is. He’s a guy who’s always given me trouble.”

                  Valencia = liar and Butler = narc, as I read it. Say, Bob, as you head toward your second consecutive season of over 90 losses, how much better has the clubhouse atmosphere been this year?

                  Sounds about right. Plus violent.

                  And it sounds like this happened before the game
                  Saturday, but Valencia still played that day, which does not reflect well on the whole organization. I’d be all right just cutting both of them.
