Marte Era begins in the Shadow of the Doll Hut 104-107 219

The World Famous Linda’s Doll Hut in Anaheim is noted mostly for beginnings. Its where SLF and I met while her band was playing. (A better trailer for the doll hut) The Marte era begins. I really think this will be the last watchable A’s baseball for a while. 6 down to houston, 2 up ...

Sailing up to Seattle for Games 98-101 181

The A’s open a three-city, ten-game West Coast road trip with four in T-Mobile Park. It’s a great chance to remind the Mariners that they haven’t seen postseason play since 2001 and should make it 20 straight seasons this year. The pitching by most measures is around major league average to slightly below, but on ...

A’s welcome The Irvine slegnA. Game 96-97 166

We may be taking on water. Everyone may be more focused on a city council meeting tomorrow. I may not be able to watch. But damnit we will have a series thread. Ohtani-Irvin Suarez-Kaprielian Camelot sure fell apart, didn't it? -Steve McCatty

Cleveburg 93-4-5 92

I just don’t know who any of those guys are. Ray Fosse now gets one rambling stream of non sequiturs to start each half-inning. Glen calls flies like he’s not allowed to attend home games either. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no ...

Much needed break Grill 88

The A’s head into the ASB with a 52-40 record which honestly isn’t too different from their usual records during contending years at this point in time. So why do things feel more dire? I would say a lot has to do with the overall negativity around the stadium issue/relocation. jeffro with a positive spin ...

West Dallas 90-92 123

Oakland heads to the shed for the last series before the break. Irvin vs. Jordan Lyles, Fri 5:05 Kaprielian vs. Foltynewicz, Sat 1:05 Bassitt vs. Kolby Allard, Sun 11:35 We miss Kyle Gibson again, but Allard is also having a good year, and Foltynewicz has had two good starts against us.

87-89: To that shack outside La Grange 116

You know what I’m talkin’ ’bout. The A’s can’t seem to score anywhere else but maybe they can get some action in the next three days. Tonight at 5:10: Bassitt vs. Framber Valdez Wednesday at 5:10: Manaea vs. Luis Garcia Thursday at 11:10 a.m.: Montas vs. Lance McCullers Jr. What I discovered Blew. My. Mind. ...

More than a feeling 84, 85, 86 219

Boston in town Oh boy, check out the Merc article Andeux linked to, such a dumb team. Why do we care Montas v Rodriguez Irvin v Richards (415) Kaprilian v Pivetta (105) I will not be watching any of it, I choo choo choose to not see red hats (I assume). I did see the ...

Smoke on the Water, 81-2-3 136

A’s reach the midpoint of the season with a home midweek three-gamer against the Rangers. It begins on the anniversary of Dave Stewart’s no-hitter, 6/29/1990 in Toronto, backed by a Dave Henderson longball and Rickey’s customary bludgeoning of the Jays. This is a great recap. Stew was amazing in his prime from 1987 to 1990, ...
