Red Suxin’ in Oakland 173

Don’t think I’ve ever been less excited to have the Front Row Seats – especially after Sale was pulled from tonight’s start.

      He does, and he screwed up there. But I don’t see how they reversed that call. And the third base ump was right on top of the play.

    I wish Glen and Ray would recognize that:

    2. Rajai sucks at sliding.
    3. Rajai is a FKing idiot for trying to stretch that hit into a triple.

    Actually, I wish they would just STFU.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy May 18,2017 8:17 pm || Up

        I’m relying on the old baseball adage to never make the first out at 3rd base. Also, I thought he was out from the beginning.

      • colin colin May 19,2017 8:56 am || Up

        He almost stopped after rounding 2nd and still made it to 3rd in plenty of time. Just needed to make a good slide… which he didn’t do.

    • ptbnl May 19,2017 7:54 am || Up

      We were rooting for him to challenge the record for most hit/thrown out PAs in a game.

      Robby Thompson had a 3H/4CS masterpiece in a game with 7/13 steals overall that featured a 4th inning (led off by Bob Melvin) that went:
      – single
      – single, runner to 2nd
      – single, runners to 2nd & 3rd
      – ground into force at 3rd, runner scores
      – double steal; runner scores on E2; runner scores on E7
      – single
      – caught stealing

      But the winner is Rickey (because Rickey) with 3H/3CS, leading off both the 1st and the 2nd innings and getting on base and being caught stealing 2nd both times.

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

    The scenes on Air Force 1 right now must be incredible.

    The law enforcement investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign has identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest, showing that the probe is reaching into the highest levels of government, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The senior White House adviser under scrutiny by investigators is someone close to the president, according to these people, who would not further identify the official.

    Other than I guess Pence, everyone who fits that description is on the plane right now.

    Preakness day! However, I’ma get my Preak on this glorious playing pickup softball in West Oakland, home of the best weather on earth. Lowell Park on 14th St starting by 1:00 PM if anyone wants to join.

    Always Dreaming probably will win. Many think he’s sitting on another big race after the KYD romp. But 4-5 feels like way too much respect for a horse that got a perfect trip on an inside biased Churchill track in the slop, while all the big contenders got very rough trips. I’ll take my chances betting against an overvalued Always Dreaming, as follows:

    $5 across the board (W-P-S; $15) on Conquest Mo Money (10). This is the only pure early speed horse in the race, and if the pace proves modest as many expect, I think he’ll have lots left to hold on at or near the lead down the stretch. The Preakness historically rewards horses at or near the lead.

    $5 across the board on Hence (3), $15. Got a lot of buzz heading into KYD then got bottled up early and never had a chance. Now up to 20-1, seems to me this is the same live horse with a good chance two weeks ago (at worse odds in a 20-horse field). Also, while seen as a closer-type, Hence has shown early speed before, and I’d expect to see him more forwardly placed, giving him a good chance to hit the board in a couple late race scenarios. I love the value on this bet.

    $5 Exacta with Classic Empire (5) over Hence, Conquest Mo Money, or Cloud Computing (2), $15. Classic Empire got hit hard twice in the first five seconds in KY and lost any chance of victory, then gathered and ran strongly through the last half mile to take 4th. Again here, I liked this horse two weeks ago and still do. Also think he might show more early pace and make Always Dreaming work harder. At 3-1 there’s not much reward, so putting him over three contenders at 12-1 or better is a way to make it worthwhile.

    Triggs reminds me a lot of Jeff Nelson…I don’t recall seeing many starting pitchers with his style.

    But seriously, folks...
  55. Bed Bed May 21,2017 2:51 pm

    Not a great outing but the offensive defense didn’t help matters either.

    I wouldn’t mind a little Mitch Lessland.

    With the Marlins coming to town make sure all the player know not to swing on a 3-0 pitch if the A’s have a big lead…apparently it goes against those stupid unwritten rules of baseball or something.

    But seriously, folks...

    75° with a delightful cool breeze at Stinson Beach, this is fucking paradise.

      The people:grains of sand ratio at Tahoe beaches is going to be awful all summer. I might take the satellite radio out for a Wednesday afternoon game or two but I’ll mostly give that a break this year. Forget it on the weekends. Water level is just under one foot from the max right now and it should be between there and the very top until almost Labor Day.

      • colin colin May 21,2017 5:30 pm || Up

        I don’t understand why Stinson isn’t always just packed once the weather gets nice. Growing up, I just took it for granted. But then I lived in New England and saw how crowded their crappy beaches get. Maybe the highway 1 traffic scares people off?

        • Soaker Soaker May 21,2017 5:47 pm || Up

          It can be 90 degrees in San Rafael, but then you head down to Mill Valley, drive up the hill on 1 and at the Panoramic Highway intersection near the top of the hill, blam, there’s a wall of fog. That’s true more often than not from about mid-June to late-August. “Once the weather gets nice” is a very local thing in the Bay Area, and at the immediate coast most of summer is chilly and gray.

        • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade May 21,2017 8:28 pm || Up

          It’s a combo of what you and Soaker say. On a nice weekend day you gotta get there by 10 to get parking and a good beach spot, but often the fog doesn’t break for a couple hours yet. So you have to gear up early for a day which might swing 20+ degrees while you’re there. High barriers to entry. Still, it’ll be packed with a long line of cars waiting to get in by 2 PM when I’m heading home.

      Amazing what a talented outfield can look like.

    I tell you what if we could have 9 DH’s, and then 9 guys who can field, to go along with a pitching staff made up only from starters, and all are games were at home, and all those home games were night games…we’d be pretty damn good.

    But seriously, folks...

    [I]n their call he praised Duterte for doing an “unbelievable job on the drug problem.”

    “Many countries have the problem, we have the problem, but what a great job you are doing and I just wanted to call and tell you that,” Trump said, according to the transcript.

        This is crazy. Plenty of other presidents would overlook Duterte’s murder campaign, and that would be bad enough. But to single it out as the most praiseworthy thing?

          My favorite part is that it was Duterte who finally changed the subject to North Korea after Trump asked “So how is everyone doing? How is the Philippines doing?”
