Tittle Bar - Sunday, 8/21/11 - A's lose to Flappy Heads

All of Canada rejoices.  Stupid flappy heads.  Wasting a good moose start...


Return of the Flappy Heads - Blue Jays in Oakland - Game 124 Open Thread

Only a stupid person tries to pretend he knows something he doesn't.  If that's the case, I've been an idiot most of my life.  Reality is, I'm generally speaking scared of looking stupid, which I...

Recap: A's Bad, Game Painful, AN Drinks Heavily

Well, Rich Harden wasn't the answer.  The Rangers scored six runs on a wild pitch, two bases-loaded walks, a sacrifice fly and a two-run DeJesus error.   It's like they are searching for new and...

Tittle Bar, Sunday, August 14, 2011 - I Still Greatly Dislike the Rangers

  Jemile Weeks and Brandon Allen combined to go five for nine, with two RBIs and two runs scored.  The young ones tried. 

Game 120 - Thread 3

Rangers up, 6-2, through five.

Game 120 - Thread 2

Rangers on top, 3-0, through the top of the third.


Game 120 - Game Thread - The Season is Finite, Rest Assured.

Fact: The Texas Rangers have beaten the A's seven straight times. Fact: The A's have laid down and allowed the Rangers to clean their boots upon them two days in a row, after returning from a...

A's Beat Flappy Heads - Who You Gonna Call? Moose Costco!

Scoring runs in bunches, the A's ended their road trip by closing out the Blue Jays, 10-3.  The A's used an efficient performance by Guillermo Moscosco and a string of hot hitting to win their...

Game 117 - Thread 2

Moose Costco dealing through five.  A's up, 6-2.  (yawn)   It's still before my wake up time.


Open Game Thread - Game 117 - Moose Costco to the Rescue!

  Sure they kicked the bejesus out of the A's last night.  But that's when we had that scrub, Gio Gonzalez pitching.  This (very early) morning, Oakland sends out Moose Costco to stem the Maple...

Thread Two, Game 116

Who cares about the game? BBG's been kidnapped!

Breaking Bad, Season Four, Episode Four

Another classic, classic opening.  Breaking Bad regularly just knocks it out of the park with the opening sequence (think last season with "(Everyone Knows It's) Windy" and the second season...

CT Lounge 8/3/11 - Winless inSeattle.

woo. baseball. woo. When's football season start?

CT, PT. 2: Sometimes They Come Back, Again

[whistles]   Death march and meeting were good.  Bought a new Nalgene bottle for the ex--she has lost probably 15 of them in the decade since we got married...she lost two in two days last...

It Must Be the Rays Birthday!

...because the A's gift-wrapped that one for them. Staked to a five run lead, with Rich Harden pitching six solid innings, the bullpen imploded, giving up seven runs in the seventh.  When the dust...

CT THREAD - 7/28/11 - Sweep is Elusive

[sigh] Well, at least the offense still looks good.

Game 105: Thread 3

Bottom of six, A's up 5-2...

Game 105: Thread 2

The '27 Yankees A's lead, 5-0 through the first inning and a half. Our offense has apparently hired Victor Conte as their personal consultant for the rest of the season...


Game 105: Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland - Brooms?

The A's go for the four-game sweep today versus the Rays. I know I'm not alone in wondering, "Who are these guys?" These are not the same A's that played before the All-Star Break.  They can't be....

Game 100, Thread 3: A's @ Yanks

Heading into the top of the ninth, Balfour held em...A's still up, 4-2.   And a dingo has eaten BED's baby.

A's Down Yankees with Pig and Lizard

Say what you will about Rich Harden, he is not intimidated by pinstripes. Giving up two runs in five and a third, Harden recalled a time in the early part of the last decade, when the A's weren't...
