You can throw away the records, 47-50 124

The bad Texas Rangers visit the bad Oakland Athletics for four, as our brief warm spell has given way to the marine layer. We saw Texas just last month, they took two of three in what has since beome the A’s signature series: blowout loss, narrow loss, narrow win. Jokes on them though, this is ...

Games 44-46 SEAsick 164

It’s a battle for the AL West cellar as the 17-25 Mariners host your 17-26 Athletics in a three-game series. The M’s started the season 11-6 but are a brutal 6-19 since then, coming home now off a four-game sweep by the Red Sox. Their offense has been meh, not helped by Mitch Haniger being ...

Q2 begins at Anaheim 56

Games 41-43, which means we are already a quarter of the way through this furshlugginer season. They are doing camo cosplay for some reason. F: Silseth/Blackburn Sa: Lorenzen/Montas Su: Sandoval/TBA (Cole Irvin will be back in the rotation at some point, but it has not been announced when)

Games 26-28 Dontcha Know 112

The A’s take their 6-game losing streak to Minnesota. F: Logue vs. Josh WInder Sa: Kaprielian vs. Chris Paddack Sonny Gray (11:10 AM) Su: Jefferies vs. Joe Ryan Chris Paddack (11:10 AM)

Extremely tall and extremely wet-looking Tampa Bay Rays relievers 23-24-25 137

A vision too terrifying for fiction. Sure call me a jinx whatever at least I put up a series thread. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."
