Home, sweet(?), home: White Sox 138-140 127

Two batters, and two “and nobody’s gonna get it” calls into the game, it feels like it might be a long night.
Liam Hendriks is back in town. We may see him if the A’s can keep a game close enough.

    I know this is obvious, but the worst part of this Titanic is that there is no way to just sit and enjoy the game. We go down by 8, not fun. But we go up by 8? Not fun..just dread for what is going to happen.

    My FFB draft is tonight so I will at least be distracted.

    Pretty uncanny how the collapse is mirroring 2014. Game 117 in ’14 seemed to start the tailspin as they went 7-16 the next 23 games. And from game 116 this year, they’re currently in a 7-16 stretch.

    The ’14 team finished 9-14 after that. We’ll see how this team does.

          they can have some pretty stupid criteria.

          USN&WR has a criterion weighing 20% where heads of universities rank other universities. just like that. out of the blue. whether they’ve been there or not. just… reputation.

          faculty resources can measure tenure only, not adjuncts, a 30/70 split.

          a lot is measured though endowment and that gets all sorts of skewed vis a vis race and class. oh sorry i mean tradition.

          forbes measures graduation rate. also race class problematic.

          there’s a revisionist history or two this season where the USN&WR guy in charge of his rankings is really made to squirms a bit. so satisfying. even though he doesn’t get it.

    Series win against a good opponent. Yay!

    76-64 means they would need to go 14-8 to get to 90 wins, which is usually around what it takes to get a wild card berth. This year it might take a little more. Boston and NYY can get to 90 wins by playing .500 ball, and Toronto is close to that; presumably at least 2 of those 3 will manage to do so. So a better target would be 16-6, for 92 wins. Not impossible, but an awfully tall order, especially with 6 games still to play against the *’s.

    Anyway, the easier part is up next: Texas, @KC, @LAA. Need to really crush those to keep any hope alive at all.

      The BP is what it is at this point, and we’re just going to have to hope for positive volatility instead of the recent run of negative volatility. It’s possible in the small sample of games remaining they have to get through.

      Things really hinge on the rotation. It’s a little insensitive considering the guy is recovering from being hit in the face, but the simple fact is that Bassitt needs to come back soon and pitch well if they’re to have a chance. You can’t pull off a strong consistent run when Blackburn, Irvin, and tired Kap is 3/5 of the rotation. And I still think Bailey/Jefferies should be options here too.

        Blackburn falling behind to Texas in the 1st inning does not bode well.

    Manaea has chance to post the strikey-outiest season of any starting pitcher in A’s history? I had no idea.

      Montas right there with him (181 K in 163 2/3 IP is 9.95 K/9. One extra K would put him above 10.0)

      In Vida Blue’s amazing 1971 season (301 K in 312 IP, 1.82 ERA, 8 shutouts) his 8.7 K/9 led the league. This year just in the A’s rotation, Manaea, Montas, Bassitt, and Kaprielian all have higher K rates than that.

    Hmm, for my post-work/pre-A’s game entertainment do I watch the Mets-Yankees commemorate the destruction of civil liberties, a tennis match between an abuser and an antivaxxer, or stab myself with a fork? Fork’s looking good.

      I went with folding laundry and listening to Neil Young.

        A friend once told me that “folding laundry” was the euphemism for smoking pot that he and his friends used in college when they were in mixed company. “I’m gonna go fold laundry.” “Oh yeah, maybe I’ll do that too.” Undoubtedly fooling many.

        I also did my laundry tonight, and decided to go fold it instead of watching Diekman pitch. Not the euphemism version, although that has helped get through some Diekman outings as well.

          Never heard that one. Me and my peers variously used “talk with the Mayor” (after Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke) and “see Earl’s sister” (who had the stuff).

    This wild card race is a real cluster. Five teams within two games for two spots.
