L’Ange Fear To Tread, 110-112 60

Shooty guesting in the TV booth this series as Dallas continues to do the new dad thing. So it feels like a good series for the radio. Though now that I’ve told Comcast to fuck off the delay is 20 seconds worse with YouTube TV.

Fans of 18 US Code § 2071 hollah!

    Listen on A’s Cast and use the audio control in Chrome to pause for the needed time.

        Occasionally either YouTube TV or the audio app puts in a pause and you have to re-sync, but when I’m listening on A’s Cast in the Chrome browser that’s not often, maybe once a game.

      He knows some compromising photos were taken when he was in the hot tub at Mar-A-Lago and he’s worried about the FBI finding them. Sure, he’s distracted.

    Cole Irvin is a real asset on a team playing out meaningless games. Get ball from catcher, quickly throw a strike, get 3 outs in under 5 minutes and get back in the dugout.

    I’m getting ads for both Cortez Masto and Laxalt. It must be cheap to buy those on A’s telecasts streaming in Nevada. Boy are we going to get clobbered by those two in the next three months.

      Who knows but reading between the lines it sounded like some personal issue…like sexual harassment or similar along those lines. It didn’t sound like something directly related to the Howard Terminal discussion.

        Maybe. It’s not great either way, though, considering he was running point on community relations stuff around the ballpark.

      • FreeSeatUpgrade Aug 9,2022 9:49 pm || Up

        Agreed, the subtext suggests he became a liability for other reasons.

        I’ve said words to this effect before: community appearances really do matter in Oakland. You need someone who can navigate spaces with advocates and trade unions and local pols. Sincerity is nice, laudable even, but what’s really important is credibility.

            Not much if any. The A’s just need to bring in a replacement with a decent local resume.

    Interesting. Good (if true) that Fisher isn’t holding it up over affordable housing. Probably not great that they still haven’t figured out the infrastructure money.

    Don’t get too excited about 18 US Code § 2071. I doubt that could overturn / prevent the popular election of a president who meets constitutional requirements (age/natural born).

      Yeah I wouldn’t pin my hopes on him getting DQ’d from the ballot, but it would be interesting to see him forced to litigate it in multiple circuits.

        Trump’s lawyers, Trump himself, Fox fascists, and now Rand Paul accusing the FBI of planting evidence is making me think there was some REAL bad stuff in there.

        • FreeSeatUpgrade Aug 10,2022 11:38 am || Up

          Trump could release the warrant so we’d know what the feds thought they’d find before they got there. Clearly they were tipped by an insider who knew what they’d find.

          So if it turns out he was holding onto top secret nuclear documents even after he was supposed to have handed everything over in response a DOJ subpoena, and the situation was bad enough that Merrick Garland went out and got and executed a search warrant for the former president’s house, I’m starting to wonder how it doesn’t end up in an indictment.

          • FreeSeatUpgrade Aug 11,2022 6:28 pm || Up

            He probably kept waving some ubersecret about North Korea around the Mar-a-Lago dining room to show off. He also might just be stupid enough, after being subpoenaed again in May, to have kept documents in the dumb room.

      I’ll always be fond of Jed for being one of the few players that actually had his best and healthiest seasons in an A’s uniform (obvious exception of this year).

        Very true. Put green and gold on that guy and he turned into a doubles machine.

          Speaking of whom, he did mention it’s Vince and Roxy on the upcoming Houston/Arlington trip. If your contract allows you to pass on Texas in mid-August, you don’t miss that opportunity even if Vegas is the alternative.

      It’s at the point where I pause to check the score and

      We do get the excitement of extra innings between these two. Only the A’s 4th extra-inning game of the year which seems like a very low number.

    Second Immaculate Homestand of the season, and 41-71 matches the season low at 30 games < .500. So 22-28 is required to avoid 100 losses. There are a decent number of very meaningless games in the final 50 (e.g. Oakland at Washington for three) but probably not enough to do that.
