Ah, I can't watch the game, so wasn't sure if he had arrived yet.

Which sucks since until Burns is in uniform, the bench is only 2 deep with Jaso and Sogard.

At least they have a roof.

You can, and if I go to another day game, I most definitely will bring my own water.

It really is a nice park. A's come back for the last 4 games of the year.

Yeah, I guess Texas is one of the few that plays God Bless America at every home game still.

Rightfield is great to stay out of the heat, but you can't see the big scoreboard since it is on the rooftop of Right Field.

I was sitting down the 3rd baseline one game and I think I spent $50 on water that game and I was at the game alone.

They are, since unless you are in right field, you are in the sun the entire time.

I have attended many games in Arlington and they would announce a sell-out but the upper deck of left field only had scattered people throughout the whole game.

They all probably do, I just said a lot since I wasn't 100% sure.
Commented on Game Thread #104: A's at Texas (2) on Jul 27 2014, 10:20p
With the technology of today and the fact that a lot of stadiums scan your tickets to get in the game, it would be so easy to do.

They may as well change it, the Dodgers scored and Kershaw is pitching, so that pretty much means game is already over.

Melvin didn't even go out to do the dance with the umpire though, so he may not have wanted to challenge it for whatever reason.

Very true, air conditioned house does sound better than driving 2 hours to sit in 100 degree heat.

As bad as the Rangers are, they have only been shutout 5 times this year. So I guess the whole league sucks for not shutting out the Rangers.

Could still be a question if his knee is ready to try and cover that much extra ground by playing center too.

That was something a lot of us said in his rookie year when they put him in Center and moved Coco to left.
