Born in San Francisco on May 7, 1979. I enjoy reading, watching tv, gardening, and going to movies. 6'0", 255 lbs. Explosive bat, (formerly) speedy. Bats: R. Throws: Badly.
Baseball history: Turned a double play at age 7. Best amateur game: I went 5-9 with 3 1bs, a 2b, and 3b (and 2 ks). Injured my knee (practicing, ironically) the day before my semi-pro tryout in 2003.
Was at Game 20 in 2002. Caught a ball from J. Dye in his first game back in 02. Was at Game 2, 2002 ALDS, Game 5, 2003 ALDS, Game 3, 2006 ALCS, and Game 5, 2012 ALDS. Got to bat at AT&T park (5 pitches, struck out) in 2007. Saw part of the AAA All-Star game in San Francisco. Attempted to see the 2010 Home Run Derby in Anaheim (got stuck on the grapevine for 2+ hours). Went to Matsui's walkoff game earlier this year. Planning to attend All- Star Game in Minneapolis in 2014. Planning to go see Frank Thomas' induction into Cooperstown.
Favorite baseball players: A's: Henderson (both), Stewart, McGwire, Canseco, Tejada, Chavez, Swisher, Thomas, Bradley, Dye, Long, Stairs, Kennedy, Piazza, Cust, Bradford, M.Sweeney, Hudsonmulderzito, Willingham, Cespedes
Favorite obscure and semi-obscure A's players: Mabry (Mr. Clutch), Lilly, the late C. Lidle, Bowie and McMillon.
Favorite non-A's players: Griffey Jr., Sosa, Bonds, Galarraga, Sheffield, Thome, Al.Belle, the Fielders, Pujols, R.Howard, J.Morgan, M.Vaughn, Ripken, Gwynn

That ball hung up there way too long

And the Dodgers would lose later.

Let's get some RBI of rain!

The question then becomes, is a Lester start every 5 days worth losing Cespedes' production?

Could have helped in the one run losses we keep having. Potentially, of course.

i just needed to see it for as long as we have been bad.

There are many adjectives for that video. Wow.
Commented on Game #134: You've Heard This One Before; Lifeless A's Fall Easily to Angels on Aug 30 2014, 8:38p
I shouldn't have doubled on that 11...

Cespedes was due for a hot streak, and when he is hot, he can carry a team. If we had some of his numbers with Boston, it could have helped smooth out this horrendous stretch of baseball. That type of player is hard to replace.

Thank you as well.

Except for that one glorious grand slam in the blowout of the Red Sox

Obstruction would be called as Nico caused the grass to stop growing in the spot where he landed

I'm seeing triple. 9 consecutive SF Geoff comments?
Commented on What Happened? on Aug 30 2014, 8:21p - 1 reply
Did that yesterday. (doubled on 11) Got a 2. Dealer had 4 and 2, then hit 2, 2, and 10.

Agreed with the one more year of Hudson part
Commented on What Happened? on Aug 30 2014, 8:17p
That's fair. But I don't think he cost us that much on defense, as a lot of commenters would have you believe.
Commented on What Happened? on Aug 30 2014, 8:16p
How about this: RBI are an example of the player doing something right to drive in the runner. Low RBI totals may not be an adequate indicator of a players' effectiveness, but high RBI totals shouldn't necessarily be written off.
Commented on What Happened? on Aug 30 2014, 8:13p
Yep
Commented on What Happened? on Aug 30 2014, 7:21p
I expect different results today.
Commented on What Happened? on Aug 30 2014, 6:39p
This is good also.
Commented on What Happened? on Aug 30 2014, 6:32p
But like I said (last?) week? Billy had a 20. Two tens and split in the hope of getting two aces.

Also, I don't care if he bobbled the ball out there. If he could catch a baserunner slipping, he's helped us out.
