    This feels like another one of those games where the A’s don’t hit until putting together a teAse in the late innings. It doesn’t help that this fking ump is giving Bumgarner everything.

      Just give it to the A’s for the cost of the outstanding loans and tell them to fuck off on their idiotic Howard Terminal plan. City & County get the money they need to not be in debt, the A’s get the land they need to build a stadium+.

    Beau Taylor is the one DFA’d for Joseph. That seems risky with Phegley, Murphy, and Heim all injured in some form.

      That’s interesting to me because unless they want to carry 3 catchers on the 25 man, another one will have to be DFA’d to make room for Phegley.

      Bob should probably make sure the Giants see Bailey again. He appears to own them.

      • andeux andeux Aug 14,2019 5:17 pm || Up

        Because Monday is an off day, Bailey’s next start would be Tuesday the 20th. He could then also pitch against the Giants on Sunday the 25th on regular rest, but (with another off day Thursday) that would mean pushing Fiers back an extra day, which I’m not sure is really what we would want to do.
        Alternatively, you could use those two off days to skip Bailey completely, and then have him start against the Giants on 9 or 10 days rest. That seems more attractive to me, but they might not want to skip him after his best start for us.
        Manaea could potentially be available that same weekend (supposed to make his last rehab start this coming Monday) which complicates things even more.

        There’s a chance Cole doesn’t pitch in the series. The Verlander game seems like a likely loss for obvious reasons. I’m not that scared of Greinke but he’s going up against Anderson and the Astros crush lefties. They have to win tomorrow’s game, Fiers against Aaron Sanchez.

        A split seems doable, and if you can get 2 of 3 from the Yankees (obviously not easy but the A’s are probably facing Happ, opener, Tanaka who have been meh this year), there’s no way you can come out of it worse than 5 GB of the Rays which isn’t unmanageable.

        Of course, you still have 7 games against the Yankees and Astros remaining after that.
