      Usual Bumgarner sour face, but we’ll see what happens next time through.

    Gotta flip the bat on players’ weekend.

    Are the A’s and Giants going to switch black and white tomorrow or is this the way it is for both games? They would have twice as many “game-worn uniforms” to sell on the Internet if they switch. I don’t know who would buy the white ones although maybe that one could be worn as sort of an inside joke at a baseball fan’s wedding.

      I just turned on a game for the first time all weekend and thought some stole my Samsung and replaced it with a 1952 RCA Victor.

    It’s disturbing that we’re not winning this game by 6 runs.

  12. lenscrafters Aug 24,2019 8:02 pm

    Those 2 batters right there illustrate Bassitt’s problem. He can’t put away guys with a semi decent off speed pitch so he’s resorting to trying to throw his fastball past guys for the third strike. And by the third time through the order, hitters are ready for it.

    Not totally sure about giving away an out there but it worked out ok.

    • lenscrafters Aug 24,2019 9:14 pm || Up

      The shit show this inning seems like a direct rebuttal to Ray/Dallas waxing poetic over sacrificing an out for a run last inning.

    Tbh, it’s a surprise to me anytime Petit gets outs on that 85 mph fastball.

  18. lenscrafters Aug 24,2019 9:04 pm

    Phegley gets a pass on the unblockable slider but the 3-2 fastball was probably strike 3 if he catches it.

  19. lenscrafters Aug 24,2019 9:07 pm

    I absolutely do not understand warming up Hendriks and not bringing him in for any situation here.

    According to Hank Schulman in the Chron, today’s Giants pitcher grew up a big A’s fan and his favorite player was…Bobby Crosby??

          I really dont see the purpose. I get that he just signed the contract blah blah blah. But I would think that it is best for everyone to admit something is wrong and we want to make sure he is fixed right.

            It would have been nice to get him some “rehab” at bats in Vegas just so that he could watch the ball fly over the fence a few times. Too late for that though.

        From the Athletic

        Rick Magnante, the longtime A’s scout and coach who managed the Lake Monsters in 2015, told [A’s scout Jimmy] Coffman that Brown reminded him of Kirk Gibson.

        “Which is a good comparison because he does kind of have that football mentality,” Coffman said.

        • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 26,2019 12:53 pm || Up

          Billy Owens makes the more palatable comp to Brandon Moss.

          • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Aug 26,2019 3:50 pm || Up

            If he also has a real basketball mentality hopefully his comp isn’t Billy Owens.

        The 40-man roster was getting outfielder-heavy, especially if that’s Pinder’s primary role going forward.

          Martini’s fate was sealed when Grossman was signed and didn’t totally suck. And I guess if they need a lefty-hitting outfielder in a pinch, that’s Fowler’s job. It’s a shame, though. I really appreciated Martini’s ability to work a walk (also Grossman’s primary talent).

    I don’t follow politics like I once did, too depressing (even before the ascension of Il Doofce). I was nevertheless unsurprised to learn that there’s a Congressman who got his start on MTV’s Real World.

      Looking at the linked ratings list, KTRB does not appear (41 stations on the list, 7 of them AM). 3-4 hours/day of Ken and Vince must not be enough to offset the remaining 20-21 hours of right-wing babble.

      The top three are talk but there are more music stations high on the list than I would have thought. My view of it is skewed because terrestrial radio barely exists at all where I live, but I thought most people had gone from commercial radio to streaming services for music.
