I agree

Sadly this does seem true.

Donaldson is a Trout. Or at least in overall value.

Aybar sounds like a worthy candiate for a "purpose pitch"

We DO have decent hitters from top to bottom.

I think this is the symbol that proves that really the A's have just been really damn unlucky.

It's an obviously incorrect judgement call that changes a tie game to a lost game. I don't see any reason why it should be held up.

The game against Cleveland where Roselas hit a HR that everyone knew was a HR but Angel Hernandez.

I don't know if that is feasable with 30 teams instead of 16.

True. I think it was less Atlanta and possibly KC, I don't know.

Were baseball games less visited at the games in the 1970's? From what I recall I remember hearing all these tales of extremely low attendence back in those days.

The first game they were not lucky. THEY WON 8-2. Even without the "four lucky walks", they still had a 3-2 lead, which Houston was unable to add on. So how was that luck?
Commented on Game #133: A's Lose Twisting, Bizarre, Painful Game Versus Angels, 4-3 on Aug 29 2014, 12:55p
I have to agree. A lot of our slump has basically been this. We've been playing well and getting hits and such just nothing that would tie it all together.

I think the biggest difference is the Angels have been lucky the A's have been not.

I think Ladendorf and Parrino at 2B and SS sounds good to me. Probably what I would have picked going into it.

I think expecting one or two of them to slump was there, but expecting all of them was not.

I'd have to say a rotation of Lester - Kaz - Gray - Shark is much better than McCarthy - Parker - Colon - Milone

I know! I don't understand that. He plays well enough. Why doesn't anyone want him? We should really grab him back.

Maybe they played better.

Otero does bounce off of Moss and that does change things, but at the same time it seems that Aybar had enough chance to react to that change.

Ummm Pujols, Hamilton, Wilson and Weaver are already not aging gracefully.

THERE WAS NOWHERE TO GO!? That's a big joke. I see a whole large piece of foul ground where Aybar could run through.

Pretty much. We're getting a pretty bad scenario. I wouldn't say worse case scenario (We're not the 2014 Rangers.) but we're getting pretty unlucky.

To me it looks like Aybar changes his direction right as soon as it looks like Otero is going to catch the ball, and the way he changes is right into Otero.

I think it's pretty clear Aybar did that on purpose.

I'm sure you could find the same thing happening with other teams.

I wanted him in! I figure giving him a chance is better than waiting on Callaspo to not suck.

Yes he wasn't on his stuff but the A's have to capitialize still to get to it.

That protest call didn't seem clear-cut and obvious to me at all. Then again I don't know much about it.

By scoring 3 ER over 7 innings? That'll sure give a lot of confidence!

It's a terrible call because Aybar purposely ran into them. It's clear as day in the video evidence. He's running outside the lines RIGHT until the ball goes over there.
