Game 33: An Unfair Game 56

I always feel like I’m committing some kind of social faux pas when I post a game thread before the game actually starts, but that’s how I roll. I get “fashionably  late” – nobody wants to be the first to arrive – but, heck, if you want me to show up at 8:45 don’t ask me to ...

Game 28: So, the ‘pen’s a piece of shit 145

Doo’s coming. We haven’t see Coco yet. Parker, and eventually Griffin, too, shall return. Reddick’s on a 12-game hitting streak, Ike’s had a 10-game, Butler started with one longer than that. Simply Sam started Super sweet, and Soggy’s found some socks that everyone likes. Plus, we have a Vogt. Athletics CF: Billy Burns SS: Marcus Semien RF: Josh ...

The can we talk about baseball now? grill 207

Grant is dumb and will probably lose all his money (SBN warning), but I’m happy that he would take the over on the A’s. Mike already posted this in the lounge, but Balfour tore his meniscus (link by SuSlu) while throwing yesterday and will be out until roughly the start of the season. I’m not ...

A’s FAIL #01. FAILing Dawn. (with final results) 141

That’s right, FKers.  It’s time for real baseball.  Or at least baseball that counts in the regular season standings. So, it’s time for the first ever Foreseen A’s Incident List (credit to Monkeyball) game.  You know the drill.  Look at the questions.  Predict the outcomes.  Submit your answers.  After the series, score your answers.  Feel despondent by ...
