The next few posts will take a look at the players comprising your 2009 Oakland A's. They're still playing at Papago Park, so clearly some battles are yet to be won. Some positions, however, don't need to be fought over this year.
Catcher is one of these; go ahead… Read full post »
This blog derailed near the time the A's season did. Hope springs eternal, of course, particularly in spring. So, let's quickly recap the last 8 months.
Rich Harden traded. Sure, he's fragile. But Gallagher has some promise, I hear. Murton I've heard of. Still,… Read full post »
Fox presents the 2008 All Star Game tonight. With Fox, you expect a certain amount of overproduction, but tonight's pre-game show surpassed those expectations by leaps and bounds.
One by one, Joe Buck introduces EVERY living Hall of Fame member, positioned appropriately around the field. Brooks, B… Read full post »
On to the 10th. Emil Brown walked to lead off the bottom of the 9th, and Ryan Sweeney promptly bunts Brown to second. Really! Okay, so Sweeney, a fringe major leaguer, is swinging a .267/.325/.320. But he's not a guaranteed out. He's no Jack Cust (whom was replaced, wisely,/… Read full post »

Lots of things on my mind today, such as the all-righty… Read full post »
It is with great anticipation that I await coverage of last night's A's/Angels on Fire Joe Morgan. Fans of FJM surely know where Ken Tremendous and Junior stand on the oft-uddered phrase "clogging the bases." And so I fully expect the most exciting moment of last night's game,/… Read full post »
So I missed the first six innings of this final game of the A's first visit to Safeco in 2008. I usually watch A's/Mariners games closely. Seems like they have our number each time out since we abused them so badly in 2006 (17-2). Add to that the curiosity… Read full post »
It's a struggle for me to blog, even though I have this great new platform from which to do it. That's mainly because I'm self-conscious. I realize that this forum is no longer a bubble of sorts, that my photos and comments and whatnot are out there, associated with… Read full post »
