Game #147: A's Win, Scare Fans In Process

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the ballpark. Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still. That is the time when ghosts are...

Game #147: A's Hold On To A Barnburner, 4.5 Up

The recap will be up later. Just savor the win.

Game Thread #147: Athletics at Rangers (7)

It's 9-8 after a complete and utter meltdown by Ryan Cook. The only reason the A's got out of the inning was by 2 terrible calls by the umpires. I can admit that. The A's better score another half...

Game Thread #147: Athletics at Rangers (6)

Welcome to the sixth thread! The A's hold a 9-2 lead as we go to the eighth inning. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Game Thread #147: Athletics at Rangers (5)

We're going to the sixth inning; the A's have added two more and Straily's finished 5! NO MERCY! It's 8-2 A's. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Game Thread #147: Athletics at Rangers (4)

Dan Straily has settled down nicely, while Derek Holland went the entirely opposite way. He was out after three innings, as Josh Donaldson wanted to tie Cespedes for RBI's in tonight's game; he...

Game Thread #147: Athletics at Rangers (3)

After Cespedes provided the first three runs, Donaldson created the fourth, with a solo home run to give the A's a 4-2 lead. After a shaky start, Straily has rebounded. We're going to the fourth...

Game Thread #147: Athletics at Rangers (2)

Well, that was interesting. After the A's jumped out to a 3-0 lead on an awesome home run by Cespedes (yay!), Straily gave it almost all back (boo). It's 3-2, going to the second. LET'S GO...

Happy Friday, and welcome to the road to October! This weekend's three-game series offers a chance for our 2013 Oakland Athletics to further secure their place as the back-to-back American League...

Game #145: A's Annihilate Twins, Open 3-Game Lead

In what would turn out to be a much-needed laugher in Minnesota tonight (minus one very large injury scare), the A's had the perfect opportunity to play their bench, rest their starters for the day...

Game Thread #145: Athletics at Twins (4)

We're going to the sixth inning. It's 16-2 A's. That is not a typo. Sonny Gray will likely be out of the game, with a whole lot of other A's regulars. Let the kids play!

Game Thread #145: Athletics at Twins (3)

The A's scored a million (approx.) runs in the 4th inning. It was a long inning, but Gray pitched nicely after his hour break. We're going to the fifth, 13-1 A's.

Game Thread #145: Athletics at Twins (2)

We're going to the fourth inning. Trust me, a lot has happened. The A's have scored 3 runs (another home run by Coco!), Josh Donaldson was hit in the hand; still in the game, but probably nice and...

Before the game festivities begin, I just want to take a moment--as MLB teams are all doing around the league--and remember that today is 9/11, the National Day of Service and Remembrance. For me,...

Game #139: A's Tied for First With Series Win

The plucky A's, winners of eight of their last ten games, shook off yesterday's loss like it didn't even matter, and continued their trend of stomping all over ace pitchers as they dismantled...

Game Thread #139: Athletics vs. Rangers (3)

We're going to the bottom of the seventh. The A's hold a 9-3 lead. Yes, really. Also. Daric. Barton.

Game Thread #139: Athletics vs. Rangers (2)

Are you still breathing? The A's jumped out to a 3-0 lead, thanks in part to a homerun by Brandon Moss, who continues his hot, hot two weeks, but Texas has scored two to make it close. It's 3-2,...

Happy Wednesday! Happy Anniversary to me (3 years, can y'all believe it?)! And Happy September baseball! Once again, the A's are playing meaningful September baseball, and find themselves locked in...

Game #134: A's Show Tremendous Resilience in Win

The A's continue their success against the American League's ace pitchers as they take down David Price en route to a win over the Rays, taking the all-important first game of this playoff-deciding...

Game Thread #134: Athletics vs. Rays (4)

Well, the Rays have tied the game up, so no win for Parker, but the good news is that it IS tied. Two K's from Cook took care of that. We go to the bottom of the eighth, 3-3. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Game Thread #134: Athletics vs. Rays (3)

So...um...Kurt Suzuki hit a 3-run home run off David Price. So, there's that. And the A's are winning 3-1, going to the bottom of the sixth. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Good evening, and Happy Friday of Labor Day weekend! Are you ready for more playoff-atmosphere Oakland Athletics baseball? Hopefully the crowd at O.co is roaring tonight as the A's face off against...

Game #132: Best Game Ever - A's Destroy Tigers

Hey, AN, don't look now, but we have a winning streak! Talk about unlikely 3-game winning streaks! The A's have now beaten Sanchez, Verlander and now Fister, and I guess "beaten" is too tame of a...

Game Thread #132: Athletics at Tigers (4)

The A's have a 10-1 lead in Detroit, and they're trying to bring it home. We go to the eighth! LET'S GO OAK-LAND!

Game Thread #132: Athletics at Tigers (3)

According to our radio announcers, the buzzword for this series is ADD-ON RUNS! Indeed, the A's have added on; it's 7-1, going to the sixth inning. Whee! More fun for the A's in Detroit! LET'S GO...

Game Thread #132: Athletics at Tigers (2)

Believe it or not, the A's have picked up right where they left off last night, with the bases loaded, no one out in the second. They managed to plate 3, and after 2 innings, it's 3-0 A's. We go to...
