I've been an A's fan for as long as I could tell the teams apart, growing up in the Canseco/McGwire/Eckersley era.

Since "discovering" Athletics Nation in early 2005, we're pleased to be a part of the best fan base on the Internet.

Open Thread: What A's Gear Did You Get for Christmas?


Happy Hollidays, er... holidays, everyone! Now that all your gifts have been opened up, it's time to share with Athletics Nation how your green and gold haul went. Posters? Jerseys? Bobbleheads?...

Matthew celebrates his first Christmas and confirms he is a big-time A's fan. Yes, we do wear A's clothing on Christmas Day! Go A's and Happy Holidays!

Just Win, Baby (and Don't Get Attached)


If Matt Holiday ends up being another player to cheer for, hitting around .280 with 20+ homers and contributing to a few A's wins in a 70 victory campaign, then it really doesn't mean a whole lot.

Today Is the First Day Of Winter


All you budding meteorologists and dayologists might try and say Winter doesn't officially start until December, but as far as I'm concerned, it's all darkness, starting today, until Spring Training.

World Series Evens Up at 1-1


Starting off a home game with a lead in the early innings is never a bad thing. If the first two games of the World Series are any indication, the 2008 contest is going to be low-scoring, and it's...

Open Thread - World Series Game 2 (cont)


After six full, the Rays lead the Phillies 4-0, in an attempt to even up the series. Despite keeping Philadelphia scoreless, starting pitcher Shields has departed, having thrown more than 100...

Open Game Thread: NLCS: Dodgers vs. Phillies (Game 1)


I hate to say this, but I still haven't forgiven the LA Dodgers for the 1988 World Series, and I probably never will. Even with the amusements of Manny Ramirez and the "what might have beens" of...

Rickey Henderson Should be the First Unanimous Hall of Famer


Every year, members of the Baseball Writers Association submit their ballots to cast votes for new inductees into baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. And so far, after decades of...

SB Nation Launches New Mobile Sites and Postseason Hub


Big news, AN fans. If you're as obsessed with the Green and Gold as I am, you'll probably find yourself feeling disconnected from the site when you're on the go. But in the last week, SB Nation ...

Tonight, K-Rod Is Spelled With an 'E'


I don't know what I like better - seeing the A's win four straight, or making the Angels look like complete idiots in the process, but tonight, I'm glad I don't have to make that choice,...

Open Thread: Game 151 - A's vs. Angels (Cont.)


After five innings, we have a real game on our hands. The A's are up 1-0 on the back of strong pitching by Greg Smith (only 1 walk, BTW) and an opportunistic double by Aaron Cunningham that plated...


Open Thread: Game 151 - A's vs. Angels

If you heard me tell you that at the end of the season, the A's Greg Smith would have his name among the pitching leaders, with Daisuke Matsuzaka and A.J. Burnett, you probably would be elated,...

A's Insert Buck, Receive Change


Going into Spring Training, the A's outfield situation was uncertain. As I pored through the pre-season previews and tried to become acquainted with names like Ryan Sweeney and Carlos Gonzalez,...

It's A New A's Record! (And Another A's Loss)


As the 2008 season draws to a close, weeknight contests at the Coliseum are seemingly less attended than Oakland City Council Meetings. The few fanatics who chose to spend their Thursday...

Open Thread: Game 146 - Rangers at A's (cont.)


Well, six runs for them, no runs for us. The vaunted Dustin Nippert continues his mastery of the A's, holding the green and gold (and red/white/blue tonight) to a pair of hits, matching their...

Open Thread: Game 146 - Rangers at A's


Following a woeful sweep on the road at the hands of the Kansas City Royals, the A's picked themselves off the floor and won four of the last five contests to conclude the trip away from the...


Open Game Thread - Game 142: A's @ Orioles

Well, we'll see whether this happens or not. The first game of today's doubleheader was rained out, and while it cleared up for a bit in Baltimore, apparently (according to Baltimore Sun beat...

Intermission - Grab Popcorn, a Beverage and a Dog


The A's dropped the first game of the double-header, 5-4, in 10 innings, following a critical Crosby error. BBG will be providing a more thorough recap, as the first half of our double recap...

Are You, As a Fan, Running Hard to First, Until the Last Out?


Baseball in Septmber is when heroes and goats are made, and when every game takes on the ultimate importance, as the air turns crisp, the kids return to school, and we challenge for the...

The A's Win a Series Against the Angels, Reduce My Lifespan in the Process


Being a 2008 Oakland A's fan is really weird. We get really nervous when our hitters bat with runners on base. And we tend to distrust those pitchers and hitters who are just about the only...

Open Thread: Game 132 - A's at Angels (Cont.)


Three hours into the contest, what once looked like a game the A's were going to, for once, win going away, is a one-run contest which Bob Geren is managing as if it were the 7th game of the...

Open Thread: Game 132 - A's at Angels (Cont.)


Rajai Davis made his impact known in the first at bat of the game, lining a single of Joe Saunders' hand, and quickly following with a stolen base. Whether rattled or bruised, Saunders never really...

Captain Kirk Beams Down to Save A's After Duke Leaves With an Injury


The A's led this game from wire to wire. Not only did they never trail, but from the first pitch, a home run off the bat of Mark Ellis, the A's had positive margins over the surging Minnesota...

Ziegler's Streak Snapped, A's Lose In 12


In a season of short-term hope, long-term frustration and the heartbreak of seeing some of our hometown favorites leave, the story of Brad Ziegler has been something to hold on to, something that...

Open Thread: Game 120 - A's vs. Rays (Cont.)


The Streak is over. Brad Ziegler's scoreless start to his career is over at 39 innings. But rather than dump him with the loss, the veteran Big Hurt, with a career that's spanned a tad longer than...

Open Thread: Game 120 - A's vs. Rays

The combination of the A's clearly having fallen out of contention, and their usual unfair share of injuries has led us to a point where we're as excited about seeing the new guys Cliff Pennington...

Could Be a Quiet Ride to Detroit...


First the good news: 35. Then the bad news: 10. As the A's rookie phenom Brad Ziegler wrote this morning, today would have been a great opportunity for the A's to stop their losing skid, and...
