It doesn’t feel like the A’s are exactly “hot” (I mean, losing two of three to the Mariners, and then an Orioles series), but they are a respectable 10-6 over the last 16 including that 6-4 on the brutal road trip. We now head into the final 16 before the All-Star Break, trying to figure out if it’s worth shopping for this year’s Jeurys Familia and Fernando Rodney.
It starts with four at the Coliseum vs. the Tampa Bay/Montreal/Portland/Albuquerque Rays. The Rays are apparently so preoccupied trying to get dual US/Canadian citizenship that they haven’t figured out who’s going to pitch for them in Oakland.
Tonight at 7: Frankie Montas vs. Charlie Morton
Friday at 7: Tanner Anderson vs. TBA
Saturday at 1: Mike Fiers vs. TBA
Sunday at 1: Brett Anderson vs. TBA
