Ken Korach and Getting Back into the A's

I I have always liked Ken Korach and enjoyed reading the last posts about him.  I wrote for the Barry Zito Forever Blog for the last 7 years but it has been pretty dormant for a long time now.  I...

The Morning After

In the Posideon Adventure, which scared the crap out of me as a 7 year old when I watched it, the people on this huge ship are trying to stay alive after it flipped.  People are dying all over the...

What's in A's name?

Somehow a fan emailed me and wanted to know, "Why does the A's name have an apostrophe?"  I thought in this season of naming questions pondering the apostrophe seemed appropriate.  My idea is...

The Swisher/Bradley Handshake/Jig

Now we enter the bleak bleak months when there is no baseball.  We wait every year knowing any day now our favorite A's player might leave the team.  This year my favorite favorite looks all but...

This is the End

Last night my wife and I went to a Buddist meditation class. The teacher talked about "the Equality of Self", the idea that I think "me" is the real self, but to someone else I am "other" and they...

Baseball Girl, Didn't you WATCH the A's in the Postseason????

BBG made the post with the question: "What is so great about Mark Ellis?" and then 101 people commented.  And not one of them came up with this little factoid:  Mark Ellis played in the Twins...

Nico, are you sure we don't need Zito?

I understand Nico's rant, but I don't agree with it.  Zito is an articulate truthful guy.  He is pretty sure he is out of Oakland.  He knows he had a good time, he knows he can get some dumb team...

How are we going to keep Zito?

How are we going to keep Zito? This is the question I have been pondering for a few days now. Is there any chance at all? My hope was the A's would have won the WS this year and the excitement of...

The Curse is Over?

The Curse is over.  This is the headline of today's sports section of the Chronicle.  There's a curse?  What unlucky thing did we do to start the curse?  They talked about the Red Sox being cursed...

Barry Zito Forever

It is the eve of perhaps the last start in Barry Zito's career for the A's. He is up against Johan Santana. Most of the experts pick the Twins in this series. I predict a big game from Barry...

Saturday Night in Portland, Maine

Tonight I am in Portland, Maine, on a business trip. I went to downtown Portland looking for a sports bar with the A's game on. No luck. The only thing I could find was Buster Olney on Baseball...

Could it get any better?

Sometimes I wonder if I live in the best of all possible baseball worlds. Today Harden came off the DL and fanned 7 in 3 innings. If you look at the math, he faced 12 guys, got 9 of them out,...

Carrot Top hits a Grand Salami!

Tuesday night I watched the first 4 innings in the owners box, thanks to Santa Clara Rotary. It was great, but then one of the members asked my wife and I if we would like to go sit behind the...

OATPARP!

A friend and I have been arguing about the relative worth of Jason Kendall.  Jason Kendall is a very unusual player.  A catcher who bats leadoff, a player with very little home run potential, a...

The Isle of Misfit Toys

I know the A's could tank, but my point is assuming they don't tank, I don't want to hear about the playoffs being a crapshoot. I don't think it is a crapshoot, but there is luck involved. Maybe it...
