Tim, you made your bed, now lie in it

Of the four games the A’s had with the Giants this week, Thursday’s is one I am the happiest they won. The A’s won three, and if they had to lose one of the four games, I would have...

A's June is over the moon ... and mystical

The first half of the season is over for the Oakland A’s, but there is no break now until the All-Star Game break in 14 games. But here is the real halfway point, and it’s looking good for the...

We haven't seen anything yet

Almost all A's in April

It's been awhile, A's Nation, but this native Texan A's fan is back to offer his two cents worth on Oakland's young season. I was concerned for a while there when the Rangers swept the series...

The Cream Also Rises ... in Detroit

So as Billy Beane might say, this "crapshoot" called a baseball playoff series once again goes to a deciding Game 5 in the ALDS. And deciding Games 5 have not been good for the A’s during...

The A's have only just begun

And Boston, please take note. The A's are Close to You. But if the A's were Carpenters, they also would be advised to keep on hammering those nails. . Still ... Oh it was a beautiful weekend in...

They're the Incredible Green Hulks again

And as they come down the stretch, the A's have turned into the Incredible Green Hulks again. It's deja vu all over again from 2012, only this year they are in position to pull away at the end...

Darling, Yu Send Me

Honest Yu do, honest Yu do. The Oakland A’s demonstrated on Wednesday a textbook example on how to beat Texas Rangers ace Yu Darvish. In Darvish’s 100 pitches Wednesday at the O.Co, the...

A's most underrated? Sogard

The A's and Angels just started the final game of their 4-game set a little while ago at the O.Co. But I would just like to say a few words about what may have an impact on any moves the team...

The Donaldson (All-Star) Dilemma

All this time following the A’s, and for the past several years almost all of their All-Stars have been pitchers, and generally rightfully so. So now comes this season, and there finally is...

A’s drafts after ‘Moneyball’ a long and winding road

Judging by the results going back to the 2002 “Moneyball” draft, few if any of the players the Oakland A’s take in the baseball draft that began Thursday night (June 6) will be playing for the...

Welcome back, Mr. Hickey

To my Ranger-fan friends in Texas

I got an email this morn (Monday 7/23) from a close friend of my wife's back in the DFW area, telling us how happy she was to see the Yankees get swept by the A's. This is generally what my reply...

Gotta Be Their Pitching

The A’s hitting is bad, very bad as the past two games and four of the past four attest. But look at whom they’ve been hitting against, and while you still won’t be happy, you may resist hitting...

Raking A's

Yes, I know, it's JUST spring training and it's Arizona, but a point of emphasis needs to be made about the A's hitting. After all, isn't this the time of the year when the pitchers are supposed...
