Games 23-26: Pinball Wizards 211

#Athletics Melvin, on challenges of playing at #Rays Trop: "It's unique here. At times it feels like you're playing in a pinball machine with all the rings and ground rules.'' — Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) April 26, 2021 Monday at 4:10: Manaea vs. Rich Hill Tuesday at 4:10: Montas vs. Michael Wacha Wednesday at 4:10: Irvin ...

Mancini and Company 162

Matt Harvey is on this team? there is…others as well. Likely 25 other players. All fine players, it’s just hard to pay attention. NO Canha “under the weather” While we were waiting to publish Matt Olson got a hit and there was nothing else. Ray is on the radio. I don’t know where this is ...

Haiku Off Day 40

In the spirit of Ice Cream’s most excellent new filking effort, I thought I’d bring another old tradition back. Instead of Haiku Friday, though, let’s make it a Haiku Off Day. I’m guessing there will be fewer of them. Got mask in pocket If I don’t put it on soon I’ll make you more tense

The Wait 12

“Extra load? Not me, I’m not taking no load.” -Ramon Laureano I pulled in from 66th, was feelin’ about half past dead I just need some place to straighten out my head “Hey, Montas, can you throw me some shut-out ball instead?” He just grinned and looked at me, “run support” was all he said ...

Twin prime conjecture 207

My conjecture is that the Twins suck. All their doughnuts have names that sound like prostitutes. And run differential doesn’t win games, Einstein Steven Stigler, if that is your real name. Tuesday A: Manaea vs Shoemaker Tuesday B: Luzardo vs Dressmaker Wednesday: Montas vs Cheesemaker "Kraut will get you through times of no money better ...

Can’t Forget the Motor City, 13-16 200

The A’s face an AL Central team for the first time in regular-season play in 19 months. OK, Miguel Cabrera and…hmmmm, there are several names I recognize but without looking at the roster it’s tough to name more than a half-dozen; Robbie Grossman is leading off and DHing tonight, and this is where Renato Núñez ...

Going for 2: Arizona 11, 12 173

Chris Bassitt takes on Mason Saunders in Game 1. Sauders has not had a good season for a while. He ahs not been good in 2 starts this year. I say Ray doesn’t wait until he comes to the plate before he slags Billy Burns for misplaying Sauders’ pop up into a double. I had ...

The Enroadening, 8, 9, 10 148

Irvin and javier manaea and mccullers Montas and Urquidi The longest winning streak of the season for the A’s is on the line. So far there have been 3 A’s bat, and three A’s strike out.

Games 5-7: Lowered Expectations 204

It doesn’t get any easier, as the Dodgers come into the Coliseum having added Trevor Bauer and his suspicious spin rate to last year’s championship team. Playoffs? We’re just trying to win a game! If even that seems like too much to ask, maybe you can root for: – A lead at some point – ...
