113-115 The Balk stops here 29

In progress Oller v garcia. I just got home and won’t be looking up the probables because I doubt I know them anyway. or it will make a difference in my listening habits. I did turn on the TV for an obvious balk that was called on garcia netting the A’s second run of the ...

L’Ange Fear To Tread, 110-112 60

Shooty guesting in the TV booth this series as Dallas continues to do the new dad thing. So it feels like a good series for the radio. Though now that I’ve told Comcast to fuck off the delay is 20 seconds worse with YouTube TV. Fans of 18 US Code § 2071 hollah! "Kraut will ...

108-109, The Gig Is Up 31

On the pregame Skyline High’s Bip Roberts makes sure to mention the many times he beat Mission High as a player and a coach and how great it is to know you rule the Bay. Dave Stewart moves into the TV booth to spread more of the East Bay love. "Kraut will get you through ...

The beginning of the end: 105-107 at Anaheim 96

A delightfully frenzied Deadline Day concludes with the A’s on the sidelines, making only one minor deal as they dispatch the forgettable Austin Allen to St. Louis for a 21-year-old low-A Venezuelan RHP, Carlos Guarate. We move now to the extended denouement of the A’s 2022 season, first featuring a series in Orange County which ...

Lollapalooza series – 102-104 78

Lollapalooza is going on in Chicago and so is a baseball series with a team from Oakland. Billy Strings played yesterday after Tove Lo, and one of them did not show their nipples. When he started with some straight up bluegrass you could tell the audience was whiplashed after her pop hits, but eventually he ...

Frankie Say Relax, 99-100-101 61

This weekend I thought “Maybe it’s the oxygenation talking, but lately these games don’t seem so painful, I should buy a ticket,” then ugly memories of recent Houston visits came flooding back, so no. Still, even a short stretch of better A’s baseball did elicit in me a ticket-buying impulse. Make note, franchise brain trust. ...

Six digit heat, 88-90, 91-93 112

Was 103,000° in Arlington today. Forecast high 105,000° tomorrow, 104,000° Weds. Kind of makes you miss the outdoor games of recent past, if you’re a misanthrope like me who secretly hates all these people. Updated for Houston: 890,000° Fri 7/15, 940,000° Sat 7/16, 980,000° Sunday 7/17. Then the sweet peace of death three days off. ...

and Vimael Machin is our leadoff hitter.

82-84 The kids in the dome. 57

Today Menoah is not facing Manaea, although sean did pitch today. Not well, much like Alex in the first. Tomorow is Kikuchi v Martinez, wednesday is 1230 and features Berrios and Kaprielian. It’s gross seeing alejandro Kirks chest protector. I don’t recall Murphy’s
