        Wherefore would you think such thoughts?

    Who are these guys?

      They have the lack of power of the A’s, but their failure to ground out weakly is confusing.

      A bunch of marginal major league hitters facing Dustin Moseley.

    Not exactly a Cy-quality first inning from Cahill in his first ever meaningful start (as determined by your standard Eastern Media Elite Cy voter).

    The longest 9-inning A’s game by time so far this season: 3:29 @ Boston on June 1. The early line says we’re going to pass that tonight. Longest extra-inning game: 4:08 @ Texas on May 11 (13 innings).

      Interesting. Can you tell whether we’re at/near the bottom (or top, depending on POV) in terms of length of games? They do seem to be pretty brisk most of the time.

      • Soaker Soaker Aug 30,2010 5:13 pm || Up

        It helps to have great pitching and terrible hitting.

        I’m sure average length of game is posted somewhere but I’m not sure where. I’m looking at the B-R daily results and sorting by time. Just checking a few random teams, here are the number of games each team has played this year which lasted at least three hours:
        Oakland 20
        NY Yankees 74
        Milwaukee 78 (good grief, Macha, quit screwing around)
        Detroit 42

          Posnanski had some numbers from 2009. I don’t know where to find this year’s numbers either.

    So the 1st was just bizarro-inning?

      And the third is just el-sucko inning.

      Poor Cahill.

        Those were a couple of ground balls that took an unlucky amount of time to bounce

          Are they allowed to do that? Has anyone told the A’s?

    Wow. Larish’s home run looked like one of Reggie’s shots from the ’70’s.

    Cahill has thrown at least 100 pitches in his last 10 starts. This is definitely not his night, and I’m thinking this isn’t a bad part of the season to give him a little break by pulling him at 75-80 pitches.

    The Dignity of the Yankees is lessened when they play “Whoot There It Is” after home runs.

    Kuroda has a no-no through 7.
