Game Thread #89: A's vs. Giants

The A's play the Giants in the 89th game of the season. That number rings a bell...

Samardzija/Hammel for Russell: Hot trade links


While most of us were enjoying our July 4th, Beane was working. As a result a lot of journalists suddenly had to start working too. Links from around the web on the A's blockbuster.

A special July 4th


It's not every Independence Day that we get to play a team from Canada.

Halfway point: Observations on the fan experience


Some random observations on the in-game fan experience in Oakland in the first half of 2014.

Game #82: A's lose 5-4 on walk-off grand slam


The A's did everything right until the reliable Sean Doolittle blew his second save in two tries, giving up a shocking walk-off grand slam to Rajai Davis.

Game Thread #82: A's at Tigers (3)


Jed Lowrie with the big hit! A's up 4-1, looking to shut down the Tigers and close it out. Bottom 8th.

Game Thread #82: A's at Tigers (2)


Still scoreless heading to the 5th.


Game Thread #82: A's at Tigers

The A's take on the Tigers in the series opener in Detroit.

Game #76: Even in a loss, A's are awesome


The A's had no business being in this game. And then they were. As usual, Doolittle made the final out in the 10th inning. Except this time it was with the bat. A's lose 7-6 to the Red Sox, but this game showed us why these A's are special.

Game Thread #76: A's vs. Red Sox (2)


A's down 4-1, heading to the bottom of the 3rd.


Game #76: A's vs. Red Sox

The A's look to complete the sweep in the series finale.

Yankee fans aren't so bad


Meet the new Evil Empire, the one that kills you with kindness

Mythbusters: A's don't show up when the fans do


For a while now, I've repeatedly heard the meme that the A's seem to lose more often than not in front of bigger home crowds. Is that really true or selective memory at work?

Game #64: A's bats M.I.A. in 4-1 loss


The A's couldn't solve Garrett Richards, Josh Donaldson made 3 errors that led to two runs, and the A's lose the series opener.

Game Thread #64: A's at Angels (3)


A's down 3-1, top 6th

Game Thread #64: A's at Angels (2)


Tied at 1, top of the 4th


Game Thread #64: A's at Angels

A's look to pad their division lead in the first of 3 against the Halos.

Oh how I love beating the Angels


There are few things better than pummeling the Angels at home for a three game sweep.

The scorched earth plan of team building


Astros GM Jeff Luhnow fancies himself as a revolutionary, but he would do well to heed the lessons Billy Beane learned the hard way.

Game #51: Bombs Away!


A's crush Tigers 10-0.
