DLD 2011-07-14 -- Rankings

A DLD for a second day in a row!? Unheard of! But it's really happening, because we clearly need something to take our minds off of baseball around here.

GOG 2011 #18

After a dramatic week, and somehow pulling off a split in the four game series against the Angels, I'm sure everyone on the A's is hoping for a smooth, uneventful beatdown of the approximately...

GOG 2011 #04

These A's have been looking sort-of familiar lately, with their inability to score runs and pitching staff that refuses to ever give them up. The theory that Oakland pitching is enough to keep the...

GOG 2011 #03

The A's are limping along after another series loss (but a pretty sweet performance from Cahill, who has suddenly decided to become a strikeout pitcher) but they now get to face another 2-4 team...

GOG #32 - Red Sox at Oakland - UPDATED with answers

Hey, it's my first GOG since 2009. I'm counting on the A's to make it a good one! Oakland is in the midst of what passes for a hot streak this season. The Red Sox, on the other hand, have lost...

Shutdowns and Meltdowns

Over at fangraphs, they recently proposed a fun statistic for keeping track of relief pitcher performances: shutdowns and meltdowns (actually, the idea was first proposed by tangotiger on The Book...

Praise for Anderson on Fangraphs Audio

1

Dave Cameron says that, taking their contracts into account, he would trade Felix straight up for Brett Anderson. (I'm pretty sure this was recorded before he signed his contract with the A's, though.)

DLD 3/4/10 -- Dumping Hella Links

The International System of Units (SI) needs a new prefix to denote 10^27 (right now it only goes up to yotta, for 10^24). A physics student at Davis has proposed a term that I am totally in favor...

Dave Cameron is bullish on Pennington

4

Dave Cameron (of USS Mariner and fangraphs fame) writes about Pennington: "If he can show enough glove to stick at shortstop, he’s one of the better young players in the game at the position." This is very different from the majority of opinions on AN (including mine). But Dave Cameron really knows his stuff, so we can hope that he's right.

DLD 10/15/09 - The Decline of AN Civilization

Because not having a DLD is barbaric... Actually, the title references Penelope Spheeris' 1981 documentary about the Los Angeles punk scene. This was on my mind because of the death of Brendan...

The season is coming to an end and, after yet another sweep at the hands of the Mariners, it just can't come soon enough.

Miguel Angel Sano signs with Minnesota

There was a lot of enthusiasm about this guy on AN earlier this year. His signing bonus is the largest ever to a position player from Latin America (except Cuba), but it's not as much as the A's gave to Ynoa.

The time has come to buckle down! As of right now, the A's have 81 games in the loss column, meaning they need to win out to reach .500 for the season. Unfortunately, the green and gold is up...
