Game 82: Leaving the halfway house 117

The A’s take their 27-15 road record into Detroit for a three-game test. Tonight’s matchup is Scott Kazmir vs. Anibal Sanchez. Jerry Layne is assigned to this series too, but fortunately for Kazmir he’s at second base tonight. It looks like a steamy night at Comerica Park, but the severe thunderstorms are supposed to hold ...

Sincerely Held Beliefs Grill 282

Time for a new grill. Our first three items are actually about baseball. And have also already been linked, but so what. Latest all-star balloting. Donaldson still has a big lead, Cespedes barely ahead of Melky Cabrera and Adam Jones, Norris still in second. Finishing second to the injured Wieters would not guarantee that Norris ...

Game 77: Take a bite out of Bartolo Colon! 155

It’s the opener of a quick two-game series against the Mets at Bailout Field, and the A’s look to draw first blood by sinking their teeth into Bartolo’s thick neck the juicy meatballs served up by their former teammate. Current Mets with A’s ties, in addition to Colon, include CY25 (who’s in the starting lineup ...

All, Just a quick note to tell you that our annual hosting bill has just posted. It came to $81, plus whatever the tiny amount is that I pay for the rights to freekraut.net (I think we are talking like $5/year, but it is through a different company and I’m too lazy to check). So ...
