That line belongs at least as much to the umpire as it does to Kazmir

Phew! Worst since 2005 sounds a lot better than worst since 1949.
Commented on Game Thread #136: A's at Angels on Aug 31 2014, 5:28p
What I don't understand is how we scored all those runs between 1949 and 2012 without Cespedes!

Not to sound like a broken record, but to me it makes a big difference what the complaints are about.

Adding one .769 OPS bat to the lineup would not make much of a difference.

Absence of Cespy is not the problem.
