Budgets and shiny new things 50

This will not go quickly…   June 9, 2016 could end up a watershed day for the Oakland Athletics. It’s the day Rich Hill got placed on the Disabled List. It’s the day Oakland traded Chris Coghlan to the Chicago Cubs for Arismendy Alcantara. It’s the day the A’s took A.J. Puk sixth overall in the ...

Red Suxin’ in Oakland 173

Don’t think I’ve ever been less excited to have the Front Row Seats – especially after Sale was pulled from tonight’s start.

Suckin’ in Seattle 351

Manaea/Gallardo Triggs/De Jong Hahn/Bergman Manaea having trouble finding the strike zone in Game 1, and not getting any help from the ump.

John Wayne Was a Ranger 170

MDC had it right. In fact, John Wayne played a Texas Ranger in the 1961 film The Comancheros, teaming with his captured fugitive to fight a criminal gang running whiskey and guns to the Comanches. John Wayne kills the gang AND the Comanches, natch, frees the fugitive to run off with the chief’s daughter, and ...

@ the Twins; Sonny Back 271

Game Thread of the Astros Orbital Decay 166

My last game thread sucked, so I’m going to jump right back on the horse. Get ready to endure lots of orange all weekend from Enron Field Minute Maid Park. Friday at 5:10: Cotton vs. Charlie Morton Saturday at 4:10: Triggs vs. Joe Musgrove Sunday at 11:10: Hahn vs. Dallas Keuchel

Time to play “Stick the pitchfork in the Angel” 177

Scioscia’s bullpen is a toxic dump. Beat the bullpen once and split the other two is a good formula for a road series win. Same Bat Time of 7 p.m., same Bat Channel for all three. Tuesday: Hahn vs. JC Ramirez Wednesday: Manaea vs. Matt Shoemaker Thursday: Graveman vs. Ricky Nolasco

Here comes Seattle. FK. 271

I find Mariners series to be especially tedious for some reason. To bad my next business trip is not until next Monday – otherwise, I could’ve missed nearly the whole thing. Anyway, four games with the M’s. Whoopee.
