Games 159-162: Last Train 135

The “A” Train is huffing and puffing and chugging to the finish line. Scheduled pitchers subject to change, especially if the Mariners are eliminated. The magic number to knock them out fell to 2 with the Orioles’ win tonight. Tonight at 7:10: Graveman Friday at 7:10: Alcantara (psst…Furd @ UDub right across town is pretty ...

Angels v A’s in Anaheim; Madsen’s guy v Sanity in NY 228

I don’t know what to say about either, but we can start here.

Texas in Town 78

Last we’ll see of the boys in Oakland until 2017.

Back home against the Astros 94

Cotton vs. Brad Peacock Manaea vs. Joe Musgrove (who?) Mengden vs. Collin McHugh

Fin de Saison 38

Sunday Sept 25. Another home season in the books. It feels, somehow, well…inconsequential. The power of low expectations. Brunch on asphalt in The Melancholiest Spot on Earth™. I’ll be there by 10, flaming grill and stove to follow. The usual spot. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get ...

Texas, Y’all (147-149) 64

May as well keep winning. It’s fun.

Games 143-146: Just when we need them, the A’s are in town 228

For the second straight series the A’s face a team needing a series sweep to keep their faint AL Wild Card hopes alive. The last time the A’s visited The K there were a lot of fireworks between Brett Lawrie and the home squad. I sense a bit more lethargy this time. Showers and thunderstorms ...

Games 140-142: The Mariners sail into Oakland 97

An A’s loss or a Rangers win tonight eliminates the A’s from AL West title contention, but we’ll still be in the running for the wild card. The Mariners are pretty much dead too, needing to win something like 18 or 19 of their final 22 with four teams standing between them and the second ...

All Cantara, All the Time (A’s vs. Angels) 149

Raul Alcantara makes his major league debut at 1:05 today. Can Miles Head be far behind???

I just hate Boston so much 62

Fuck those guys with Gisele Bündchen’s dick. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."
