The A’s take on D.C. corruption 189

I guess Dusty Baker is still managing and uh, both teams will likely use starting pitchers at some point. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Nationals play baseball so…there’s that.

 

Go A’s

    That was some quality analysis from Mulder, talking about how with Strasburg’s command struggles meant it was crucial for the A’s to be selective, like right now with one out, a RISP and Lowrie looking at a 2-0 pitch, gotta layoff anything that’s not center cut. Then Lowrie rolls over on a nasty running inside pitch and grounds weakly to 1st.

    After Soaker’s lineup post yesterday I almost commented that after Pinder and Healy, Olson should be the next youngster to get regular playing time.

    He’s hitting .285/.374/.575 (8th in the league in OPS) with 14 HRS (3rd) at Nashville, and is still only 23.

    The bad news is that his K rate is still 26%, so it remains to be seen if he can make enough contact against major league pitching to be useful. At least he will fit right in.

    Hopefully the Athletics players can get some defensive tips from the little league players.

    But seriously, folks...

    Just to get out ahead of the site crashing…Khris Davis will do something that will make me laugh…Matt Joyce and or Trevor Plouffe will do something that will make me angry…Rajai Davis will do something that will make me wonder why he got a two year contract…and I’ll probably post something about food/music/Steven Segal.

    But seriously, folks...

      To nitpick that: Rajai only got one year. Joyce and Casilla were signed for two years. Madson and Doolittle are the only other players signed for 2018 (Lowrie has a club option which can be bought out for $1M). This is a time-killing year, but on the bright side they can do a near-total housecleaning from the July 31 deadline into the upcoming offseason.

    Mulder said he’s going to the Warriors game, and I bet a few of the A’s players have tickets too, which partially accounts for this game being in the 5th inning after one hour. (Soaker hopes for one quick game in the Saturday doubleheader but expects to be in the Trop for about 9 hours.)

    After that crappy start vs. Cleveland, Sonny is so far doing a very nice job of rebuilding his trade value against a lineup the acquiring team needs to beat in October.

  96. Soaker Soaker Jun 4,2017 2:32 pm

    Who are the nincompoops who are booing Bryce Harper at the Coliseum? I’d be giving him a standing O every time he comes to the plate.

    No Glen, they are not going to bunt in front of Bryce Harper.

    Another abysmal at bat. So fucking tired of Rajai.

    I guess Rajai just didn’t believe he could win that at bat.

    Matt Joyce with the Grand Slam. I have nothing snarky to say I just wanted to point out that this happened.

  105. Soaker Soaker Jun 4,2017 4:21 pm

    It was enough to give a good scare to all the Warriors ticket holders, though Bob was going to take care of that problem by bringing Casilla in for the 10th.

  106. lenscrafters Jun 4,2017 4:24 pm

    I suppose one positive is that they may finally send down one of the three headed Montas/Smith/Neal shitfest for Hahn instead of a position player.

    • Soaker Soaker Jun 4,2017 4:35 pm || Up

      Not that it addresses that point specfically, but I notice Blackburn pitched today for Nashville, and I’ll speculate he will be the 26th player on Saturday and start a game of the doubleheader.

      • Soaker Soaker Jun 5,2017 10:46 am || Up

        Actually, with Hahn coming off the DL tomorrow and with off days on either side of the Tampa Bay series, they don’t need an extra starter on Saturday (should be Gray and Manaea in the DH) so scratch the Blackburn idea.

  107. Bed Bed Jun 4,2017 4:25 pm

    My favorite part of the game was the 6 innings I napped through.

    My prediction for Game 2 of the NBA Finals is that I’ve watched maybe 7 NBA games the last three years so I shouldn’t be making predictions…or Warriors by 9.

    I made it through 16 minutes of House of Cards before turning it off, I made it through 2 innings of A’s baseball before falling asleep, and I made it through this entire game thread without being told it stopped. Today, http://www.freekraut.net was more of a gamer than I was. Oh, and House of Cards has become totally unwatchable.

      I’ll take this as confirmation of Lenscrafters’ opinion that Brugman is not a real centerfielder:

      BO: Well, I think he’s definitely capable of playing all three outfield positions and being a fourth outfielder. There’s no question in my mind that he can do that. And I think that Jaycob’s going to assert himself. He’s not a flyer, he’s not going to go up there and give you a blazing time down the line and do cartwheels and what not, but he’s efficient – he takes great routes and gets good angles. So, he can fill in at all three and be a fourth outfielder. But if he keeps on asserting himself, I think he’s going to surprise people at the top level, even defensively. He’s a technician and he’s efficient in center field with enough speed.
