Radio Only Weekend V Giants 63

Unwatchable, and not for the 2010 reasons

In the bag 215

1. Certain of success (e.g., in British Parliament, a petition to be discussed, put that in the bag by the Speaker, with certainty it will be worked on that day.) 2. Pre-arranged; fixed (e.g. “Bet to rent; it’s in the bag” 3. (Half): Drunk #1 of 3 vs the Yankees secured as Homer whoo hoo’ed ...

Games 121*-124*: A’s-Astros Fourplay 273

The A’s enter a tough homestand trailing the Astros by 9.5 games in the division and down by 2 games to Tampa Bay (and 3.5 games to Cleveland) in the wild card chase. While the A’s play 4 vs. the Astros, 3 vs. the Yankees and 2 vs. the Giants, the Rays schedule over the ...

Giants 119,* 120* at them 103

Bumgarner v Anderson Bailey v Beade In progress.

Games 113*-118* in the ivy-covered guaranteed rate burial ground 247

A full week in Chicago commences with three on the North Side. This would be a fun road trip but Chicago is on the pricey side and in a week I would put on 10 pounds just from the pizza. This series concludes the A’s NL Central games for the season. They are 9-4 and ...

On The Cards 76

St. Louis in town for just the two. They brought the baby blues for the occasion. Hudson vs. Fiers Wainwright vs. Roark

Cold Stove Grill/GT 169

Stroman is the only major piece to be traded thus far, and the A’s acquisitions of ex Royals have been barely enough to whet the ...

The Highly Suggestible Type 186

Now that we aren’t playing Houston the future seems bright again. A deep playoff run and many big contract acquisitions are surely imminent. Anderson Mengden Homer Fiers vs the Galloless Rangers who are 1-5 on their current road trip. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through ...

Gumdrop & Spider; Charlie brown & Snoopy; Columbia & Eagle 136

I am not expecting much from this series, we may see a no hitter or 2. Bailey v Cole Fiers v Miley Bassitt v Verlander (11AM game)

Games 97*-100*: Into Hell’s Kitchen 160

It’s a big mid-July series for both teams. The Twins enter on their first 3-game losing streak of the season, the last 2 being a short-series sweep at Target Field by the not-so-Amazin Mets. By Pythagorean record the A’s trail the Twins by just 1 game (MIN 57-37, OAK 57-39). Both teams have tough series ...
