Exactly. Get behind early, game over.

No one wants back into this game more than Callaspo and Hammel. Right?

I really miss Tommy Milone. Game over.

This game is very, very close to being out of reach.

Agreed. For example, that last AB by Callaspo was putrid. Just gave the out away.

Freiman is really bad on offense, and really really bad on defense. And he can't run. Other than that ...

Yes, but the argument is that the Royals are so lot. If you're faster than a fat guy, that doesn't prove you're fast.

I don't know ... in last 12 games they have scored more than 3 runs just 3 times, and in at least 1 of those games they were handed zillions of walks.

Dogmatic refusal to bunt in OBVIOUS bunt situations has killed A's 2 games in a row.

Commented on Game #116: The one with all the walks, Athletics 9 Twins 4 on Aug 10 2014, 2:07a
On MLB, Tazawa's strikes are middle of the plate and waist high. His balls are way out of strike zone. In short: looks like he totally sucks.
