Games 7-10: A’s vs. Red Sox ← FREE KRAUT!

Games 7-10: A’s vs. Red Sox 186

The Red Sox pitching staff staggers into Oakland having given up 34 runs on 42 hits, including 11 home runs, and 19 walks in their four-game series in Seattle. I haven’t read any of the Boston media but I bet there’s some concern/worry/panic. Let’s hope the A’s can add to it.

Monday night: Brooks vs. Price
Tuesday night: Fiers vs. Sale
Wednesday night: Estrada vs. Eovaldi
Thursday afternoon: Anderson vs. Rodriguez. I’m assuming Brett though the advance schedule shows TBD right now. I suppose that’s a dangerous assumption.

Rain looks like it could be a factor especially tonight (green blob a couple hours offshore on radar) and Thursday afternoon. It’s a bit of a jolt that the A’s will have completed just about 1/8 of their home schedule by Thursday, April 4.

    Man, the A’s lose a lot of attendance by having the Red Sox in for a midweek series at the beginning of April vs. a weekend series later on.

    • sslinger Apr 2,2019 8:55 am || Up

      I was truly shocked at how small the crowd was last night. I’d have thought the Sawx fans would show up in droves for a chance to see their team, especially after winning last year. And those that were there were decidedly subdued, they made a bit of noise here and there but not that annoying. I guess a few championships since 2004 and even they have become blasé about their team.

      • Soaker Soaker Apr 2,2019 10:20 am || Up

        It’s not just the Red Sox fans who didn’t show up. The home team is coming off a 97-win season itself. I don’t think you can directly blame “chance of rain”; there should have been more advance sales for a game like that. Plus I thought the “A’s Access” plan was supposed to get more bodies in the stadium even when the “member” doesn’t have a ticket for that specific game.

        Two comments:

        1. April 1 is early, people aren’t into baseball yet and there’s an anticipation of lousy cold weather for night games. I know the season has been starting the first week of April for a long time but still.

        2. When management has been telling people for years how badly they need a new ballpark because the current one sucks, that message sinks in pretty deeply.

        • lenscrafters Apr 2,2019 11:43 am || Up

          3. Stuff like food carts, new seats, and A’s Access is nice and all but what would actually move the needle in terms of fan interest and engagement is if ownership and baseball operations committed legitimate resources towards the product on the field. When you have a 97 win team and a strong cost controlled position player core, but you commit the absolute bare minimum towards fixing the other gaping holes on the roster and you don’t sign your current stars to extensions when everyone else is doing it (as GM noted below), it’s probably not a surprise that no one is showing up to invest in this core when all signs indicate that it’ll be just as fleeting as the last few.

          • dmoas Apr 2,2019 12:21 pm || Up

            Especially when you have a guy like Davis actually saying he wants a reasonable 2 or 3 year extension and nothing happens. That’s pretty stupid and discouraging.

        Also, I was over here at the computer when Ed’s comment went up before the inning had even started on my TV; that’s why I can only comment between innings now.

          I don’t know that’s necessarily true re: Chapman. Another Boras client, Bogaerts, just signed for 120 and he was a lot closer to FA. If the A’s brought 100 million to the table, I think they’ll at least listen.

          • Future Ed Future Ed Apr 2,2019 2:37 pm || Up

            I was listening to Eck on the NESN telecast last night. He speculated(?) that Bogaerts wanted to stay in Boston and pushed Boras to make a deal. Eck also said that Bogaerts has “basically the same stats as Machado” so take his claims with a few grains of salt.

      The play last night brought to mind Cespedes, in that he had to misplay the ball first in order to get the chance to show off his arm.

      I’m not complaining, but keeping the tying run at second with one out by playing the dang carom would have been advisable. Hell, he might have nailed Bogaerts at second if he was caught trotting out of the box.

    The A’s evidently aren’t the only team who had issues with Entercom. This one is a little surprising. It’s not totally clear from the article whether the Mets or Entercom is more to blame.

    The Mets and their radio partner, Entercom Communications, have apparently shut down their network across New York state for 2019. The only network that will air radio broadcasts is the team’s flagship station, WCBS, out of New York City.

    Levine said he recently received an email from an Entercom official explaining that the company would not be purchasing the satellite time required to distribute the Mets games throughout the state.

    “This is why the Yankees are the Yankees and the Mets are the Mets,” Levine said. “It’s not like we told the Mets we didn’t want them. They reneged on the deal. They are too cheap to do what every other major league franchise does.”…”To me, they are just giving the middle finger to Syracuse and all of upstate New York,” Levine said. “They just can’t help shooting themselves in the foot. This is what they do.”

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 3,2019 5:51 pm || Up

  65. Soaker Soaker Apr 3,2019 9:12 pm

    Barreto: “What’s that you say? Profar made another error? Huh.”

    Also…ORANGE?!?! Yuck.

      i’d rather it be the closer, but whatever, that’s fine

      It’s a little early to be pushing Treinen hard and this would be 4 out of 5 days.

      • lenscrafters Apr 3,2019 10:09 pm || Up

        Agreed, but Rodney’s spot should really be taken by someone else.

    Does Petit still exist?

    LOL he was safe

  71. 5Aces 5Aces Apr 3,2019 10:04 pm

    @andeux we are saving him in case he needs to throw 15 innings someday.

    Rodney has given up hits to Nunez, Swihart, and Bradley.
    Let’s see if he can get out Mookie Betts!

    Casilla somehow lasted til mid July last year. Hatcher made it the whole year. If Rodney is DFA’d by June, I count that as a win.

  75. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 4,2019 9:39 am

    I hope Melvin at least gives Profar a day off today to think about what he’s done.

    • andeux andeux Apr 4,2019 10:24 am || Up

      Nope. Pinder at 3B. Hopefully just a bruise for Chapman.

    From the Athletic, regarding the Swihart hit in the Ninth:

    “That one is a tough play,” Profar said. “It was hard hit. I think it’s a do-or-die. Either I get in front of it and it’s going to hit me or I do that. I gave myself a chance but it didn’t hit the glove.”

    I would have been OK with it hitting him.

    That could have been worse I suppose.

  80. 5Aces 5Aces Apr 4,2019 1:15 pm

    Great job by Profar to hit the ball so poorly he can avoid the DP. I’m worried I am racing towards CY25 territory.

    Camelot sure fell apart, didn't it? -Steve McCatty
    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 4,2019 2:30 pm || Up

      That time he hit it just right.

    • 5Aces 5Aces Apr 4,2019 2:30 pm || Up

      But next time he built up that strength to make sure he got that DP taken care of.

    • Soaker Soaker Apr 4,2019 2:33 pm || Up

      We have to look beyond outfielders*. It’s moving into Jim Johnson territory as an opening-homestand faceplant.

      * – Was looking at CY25, wrote “outfielders”, meant “position players”.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 4,2019 1:51 pm || Up

      Wouldn’t have been easy, but a lot better chance than what he tried.

      • 5Aces 5Aces Apr 4,2019 1:58 pm || Up

        I couldnt even get upset about that at this point. Either base would have been a play that you need to be a good MLB 2B to make. I am at least realistic. Same thing with his latest K.

        i’m sure at some point this will turn around and I will sing his praises while he carries the team on his back for a week, but this is getting ugly fast.

    Brett has worked around some bad ball calls the last couple of innings.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 4,2019 2:19 pm || Up

      Phegley’s framing may be part of the problem.

  86. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 4,2019 2:36 pm

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 4,2019 2:49 pm || Up

        He came in! Gave up a run-scoring triple.

  88. lenscrafters Apr 4,2019 2:44 pm

    That was a strike you FKing Masshole.

  89. 5Aces 5Aces Apr 4,2019 2:46 pm

    • lenscrafters Apr 4,2019 2:50 pm || Up

      Hopefully the “more runs” option is on the table.

  90. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 4,2019 9:29 pm

    The Aviator prospects did a lot of hitting on opening night:

    Two homers for Fowler
    A triple and a homer for Mateo
    Two singles for Murphy
    A double for Barreto
    A single and a double for Neuse
    A double and two singles for Ramirez
    A single and a steal for Bolt

    • Soaker Soaker Apr 5,2019 9:52 am || Up

      (checks to see how many runs they lost by)

      Blevins, Triggs and Dull, there are more bullpen options when we get tired of the current ones.

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 5,2019 10:07 am || Up

        Here’s hoping someone else jumps the line on those guys. Maybe Miguel Romero or Kyle Finnegan (currently in Midland). Or maybe they salvage Grant Holmes by making him a reliever.

  91. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 5,2019 1:53 pm

    The Giants could at least try to put up a fight against the Rays.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 5,2019 3:47 pm || Up

      The insertion of Wilmer Font might help.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Apr 5,2019 4:22 pm || Up

      I wonder how much handwringing we are going to see in the local press about the seemingly meager turnout for their opener.

      This song is going to become very familiar in the Northwest.

      Also, 13 infield errors in 9 games.
