That's two years in a row...

that Pete Carroll has allowed his team to show up against a vastly inferior opponent unprepared and ill-equipped to win.  I know that the coaches can't suit up and play the game themselves, but...

What defines a true "choke job"?

After watching Memphis completely fall apart in the last two minutes of last night's NCAA championship game, several of us got into a water cooler discussion today about what it means to truly...

Cry me a River

I rarely start a new thread, but I just have to rant a bit and get this off my chest amidst all of the "world is falling" nonsense ...

Situational Hitting Meeting

So glad that Ty Van Burkleo called a meeting yesterday in order to go over the team's horrific performance with RISP. Not only are our beloved A's last in the majors in batting avg. with RISP, I'm...

Chavez, just keep your mouth shut

So Chavez sinks to new lows offensively last night, and now I hear "his forearms are hurting." I'm sorry, but that's crap. Plain and simple. Maybe not the claim that he's hurting -- that may very...

Base-running Blunders

I would have included this in last night's game recap, but since I haven't seen one yet, I just needed to get this off my chest. Look, I'm all for the A's being more aggressive on the base-paths....

Hey Nico, kaweah, etc. (re: Chavez)

I need some Chavez "love." PLEASE tell me this was just a couple bad games. PLEASE tell me this was an abberation (you know, like the 10 pitches I've seen him swing at in the dirt or above his...

Another Macha/"No fire, no heart"/is it time to panic ?

Athletics Nation has always been pretty split when it comes to "Does the team show enough fire" opinion . . . half of us wish Macha/Chavez/whomever would throw a tantrum after every failed at-bat,...

For Nico ... wanted to be sure to respond ...

Negative posts

I'm having a great time watching the game and watching the posts ... both positive AND negative.  But you know what's just as bad as listening to people bitch and moan about the A's? People who...

Giambi

I must admit I'm writing this while incredibly frustrated by the 4-1 start to tonight's game .... but I have to laugh at some of your short memories regarding Jason Giambi. Before I say anything...

Quick question

sorry to use an entry on this, but I couldn't find it addressed in any of the other recent posts.   In today's SF Chronicle, Susan Slusser writes that the umpire ruled that "Ellis intentionally...

This team is not above average.

I wanted to stay positive, and I know that if I say "this team is horrible," I will be chastised the rest of the night for being so negative, and, well, just downright mean. Heaven forbid I say...

Bad idea Blez

but it's your site, and you can do anything you like. I thought it pretty lame though, that you labeled the one site "Pessimist." Should have been "Realist."   But I understand it makes you angry...

Don't ever compare Tejada to Chavez

Although it's the apologists favorite line lately, "Well, remember that one time Tejada started off slow ......" Tejada, with numbers in the next 4-5 seasons like he's put up lately, will be in the...

Chavez will not have an RBI

with RISP until May.  Write it down. (If then.) Hate to say I told you so, but I told you so.  No guts, no glory. "Oh, please,please,please walk me."  It's gone beyond bad, it's actually sad now to...

Another Kotsay plus

Although it seems like "no big deal," isn't it nice to see the on-deck guy telling the oncoming baserunner whether to slide or not?! (That is his job, by the way.) Kotsay was imploring Swisher to...

Hey Ohad ...

I had to go to work today in the midst of our back and forth regarding Chavez.  Looks like Blez thought it got a little personal. My man Nico took it waaaaay too seriously I thought, but oh well....

It's times like these ...

when a team needs its star player to really step up and put the team on his shoulders.  The great ones do -- Delgado, Bonds, Guerrero, Hunter, Ramirez, etc. -- whether their team is slumping or...

Why is 2005 a lost cause , , , ,

Help me understand now why some of you (and Billy Beane it sounds like) think 2005 will be a rebuilding year?  Or why 2006 will be "so much better?"  Does losing Hudson mean we go from contender to...
