Adam Kennedy has always been my favorite player: game thread 052?09 25

Long weekends make me lose track of what day it is. A’s up 4-1 on the strength of nifty doubles by Kennedy (2 RBI) and the H2N3 Virus (1 RBI).

Memorial DLDay 10

A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal bobblehead booblehead afterwards. — Theodore Roosevelt Rossevelt Note: Last night’s DLD got some weird code inserted in it. I’ve beefed up the security a bit and deleted that DLD. It does not appear ...

Almost made it to Memorial Day 2

Rick Morissey, waxing poetic about Rich Harden. This is a man who could get hurt falling asleep. More like waking up. February 27, 2004 Rich Harden was scheduled to throw batting practice Thursday but was held out because of soreness in his left (non-throwing) shoulder, according to the Contra Costa Times. He felt a twinge ...

In which monkeyball posts a (lame) game thread 70

Sweeney back in the lineup. Crosby playing first again. Whee.

In which monkeyball solves the A’s stadium problem 31

It’s quite simple, really. There currently exists an unrealized confluence of two opportunities that only a bold, visionary real-estate developer such as Mr. Lewis Wolff could exploit. I am talking, of course, of the federal stimulus spending program, and the current debate over where to relocated the “enemy combatant” prisoners from Guantanamo Bay. Lew should ...
