The 31-31 A’s host Kansas City for four, hoping to stave off Soaker Day for just a little bit longer.

Moments in the Metroplex 130

Draft Day 2018: In Line At #9 119

I love draft day. So much promise, so much potential. This year the A’s have picks 9, 50, 70, 85 and then pick 9th in rounds 4 on and have $9,553,000 to spend total. It sounds as though there is a fair bit of consensus as to who the top 5 picks will be, but ...

KC belongs to me 87

Proud new papa Marcus Semien returns to face the Royals. Proud new starter Frankie Montas does the same. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."

Games 44-47: We’re unarmed. Don’t shoot! 146

I think we can get through four days without anyone in the A’s traveling party trying to assert his Second Amendment rights. The room service employees at the hotel in Toronto can breathe easy and go about their duties. The schedule, including the network roulette: Thursday at 4 p.m.: Triggs vs. Aaron Sanchez, MLB Network ...

Mass. Killings 139

Currently 0-0 in the first of three at Fenway. Manaea – Porcello Mengden – (Eduardo) Rodriguez Graveman* – Sale *Per Slusser, there’s a chance this could be Cahill.
