A’s at Yankees g2 37

It’s the 18th anniversary of Jose Canseco being pulled from the on-deck circle in a game at the Coliseum, so trades do happen on August 31. I’m looking at Brad Ziegler’s place in the A’s bullpen, with 7 appearances for a total of 6 innings in the month of August, plus Slusser’s disclosure that the ...

Things can just be allowed to be dirtier 102

KOTD Happ shittens Oh, no, no, no, no. I’ve got 34 goats that depend on me daily. I couldn’t be away that long. In law school, I played tambourine for the Frilly Judicial Ascots MM Spoiled Bastard, for those of you who watch (we seem to have abandoned the standalone post) You know where you ...

I Feel So Clean Inside! 110

CCSOTD Is this someone we maybe ought to pursue? (Um, no, not TLR) TWMSS: I love my teammates, so when we do something good that’s just how I’m wired. I want to share that love with my teammates. TWMLS: Take a good look, because it’s the last time you’ll see this beaver. This was probably ...

Another one about baseball 90

1. Base-clogging! Kouzmanoff’s drive off the wall in center led to an unusual sight for the A’s: All three runners scored bing, bang, boom, with Jack Cust trotting in and Mark Ellis sliding in a few moments later, nearly tripping up Rajai Davis, who was right on his heels. 2. I wonder if he also ...

The Grill (and Game Thread) that’s actually (mostly) about baseball 66

Interesting analysis of the leaked MLB financials. And another. Not-promising outlook on Cust for 2011 Neat A’s ballpark renderings. ML lets his pro-SJ side show at the end after making a token gesture to Oakland boosters at the beginning. Boy, and you thought our lineup was bad … Well, there’s an accusation I hadn’t seen ...

A’s @ Indians 12

Gio vs Fausto. Jesus, but it’s hot here. If I wanted to live in Phoenix, I’d … well, I’d kill myself.
