      3-0, bases loaded, (run-scoring) GIDP.
      Could have been much, much worse.

    Should’ve let Brugman hit. Good time to find out if he can get a hit a lefty. We already know that Rajai can’t hit.

    If they can win 1 of the next 2, I’d like to think they’d at least have a shot of turning the final pre-ASB series in Seattle into a shot at emerging above .500.

    OK, now that the 9th inning terror has subsided, nice win, bitches.

    Nice article about managers who influenced Melvin, as he approaches his 500th A’s win and 1,000th in all. Frank Robinson and Sparky Anderson kinda seem like dicks.

      As a matter of necessity, the A’s welcome fresh faces almost daily and Melvin looks back at how he was shunned as a rookie — and does the opposite.

      That’s why I still think he’s a good manager for a team like the A’s.

        last 2 years he seemed to fall back on “play the vets” whereas in 2011-14 he mixed and matched more. Part of the problem was butler, but I think this year, in the past few weeks I have enjoyed his game moves more.

        I think he is a good fit still

      What good does speed do if he doesn’t get on base?” Melvin recalled Garner telling him. “That really resonated with me.

    Pretty happy with the Bruce Maxwell era so far.

    It’s been interesting reading about the youth movement we’ve all wanted happening while we’re gone. I hope it does lead to some enthusiasm remaining for the rest of the season.

    Frankie Montas is starting tonight for Nashville. May say more about their roster than the A’s plans.

    things could really heat up soon — and Billy Beane could be the one to light the fuse.

    Oakland has already started shopping several players to other teams, according to a rival executive, and while Beane will have the patience to wait until July 31 to make a deal (or two or three) if necessary, the Athletics’ executive vice president of baseball operations won’t be shy about trading now if he thinks it’s in his club’s best interest.

    It’s only the third time in 18 appearances that Josh Smith has entered the game with the A’s either tied or in the lead, so he had to get himself out of that uncomfortable situation immediately.

      Just seems like one of those games where however many runs the A’s score, the bullpen will allow more.

        Bringing Josh Smith into the game in the 3rd tells me, “don’t invest much energy in this one”.

        17 strickouts is impressive too.

        This is the thing passed right after 9/11 authorizing the president “to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.”
