Rangers 5, A’s 4

April 29th, 2009

Uh oh. Losing a game is bad, but losing not one… not two… not three… but four! players to injury is much, much worse. Say goodbye to both Mark Ellis and Nomar Garciaparra, who were placed on the disabled list with calf injuries sustained in Tuesday’s game. We’ve seen the Nomar injury coming, but Ellis’ […]

Weekend With the Rays

April 27th, 2009

Well it sure looks like all the A’s needed to get a few good wins was to face a couple of righty pitchers. Matt Garza and Andy Sonnanstine were the victims of the A’s attack Saturday and Sunday respectively. Southpaw Scott Kazmir on Friday? Not so much, as he limited the A’s two hits and […]

OK, I’m convinced. The A’s don’t want to win baseball games. Really, if they are trying to win – how do you explain this one? 1st inning: Runner on 2nd with one out – didn’t score. 3rd inning: Runners at 1st and 3rd with nobody out – didn’t score. 7th inning: Runners at 1st and […]

Blue Jays 1, A’s 0

April 20th, 2009

Well here we go again – another great pitching performance wasted by a lack of offense. Dallas Braden is going to win most games when he gives up one earned run in 7 1/3 innings. Well, as long as he’s not pitching for the Oakland Athletics. I mean really – is there something about being […]
