Return of the Grievous Angels 234

We seem to play these guys a lot.

Gm #23-26: Purple is not much better 291

A’s @ Dbacks for 2, then back home for 2.

Orange is the worst color 337

Pumpkins are the grossest squashes. Sports uniforms with orange are objectively hideous. Spray tans. Oranges the fruit are OK but were better in the original Sanskrit. The best cheddars are white. Five MLB teams wear orange. Three are evil, two are hapless. Home Depot is a nightmare. It’s too fucking hot out. Friday 6:45, Sat ...

Games 17-19: Road trip! Three more with the Scioscias 343

The A’s now begin a stretch with 18 of the next 23 away from the Coliseum. This 8-game road trip does get broken up with 3 over the weekend in San Francisco, between these games in Anaheim and a couple in Phoenix. I thought we were trying to minimize the travel but whatever. A win ...

Houston comes in for a series that could be important for playoff seeding. Fri: Bassitt vs. Greinke Sat: Montas vs. Framber Valdez Sun: Luzardo vs. Cristian Javier The A’s have the 3 starters I would want out there.

The first road trip for the A’s takes them to Seattle on Seafair Weekend. Well it would be. You can enjoy the Boeing Air Show at Home with your very own U.S. Navy Blue Angels paper airplanes. The roof will be open because the weather will be gorgeous as you would expect in Seattle at ...

The going gets Rockies 196

Hey, we made it to a second series, somehow. The Colorado Rockies make their first visit since [fill in search result] for a quick two-gamer, first facing Daniel “Sex Wax” Mengden and his arsenal of duplicity. Joke’s on you, [name of Rockies player I know]! Wednesday’s game is an afternoon Bluetooth special, and might be ...

It’s just like getting a new season at the deadline 430

Against all odds (or logic) the MLB season is starting in approximately 6 hours. Still things to work out: – Where tf are the Blue Jays going to play (Camden seems like the preferred option at this point) – 10 -> 16 playoff teams? A’s roster is set: The Oakland A’s reinstated RHP Daniel Mengden ...

Summer Cramp Grill 268

A mere fortnight of “Camp Coliseum” is all that remains before the alleged start of the “season.” Whether Krusty shows up or not, we can still have a good time here grilling.
