The A's have 64 games left to play. The Angels have 65 games left to play. Let's eliminate the common games and see where the remaining schedules differ. The teams will play each other 10 times....

The Bullpen Gets Me Down

I haven't followed the team that closely this year, and the bullpen statistics posted on AN actually look pretty good, but I'm hoping you can give me some encouragement regarding the A's bullpen. I...

Angels, Facts of Life Edition

You know, it's kind of sad to see Pujols up there. He looks awful. But it's not sad to remember his contract. In fact, looking at it makes A's fans really happy. You know the information, but like...

Angels Really Suck and I'm Still Surprised

With the A's losing 4 straight to the Indians, and now being at 12-18 in games played against teams other than the Houston Astros, I'm kind of down. I thought they might have been better, although...

Giambi: One Out Away From .199

I love the facial hair, and man those were some good times.  But, uh, Giambi can't really hit any more.  i know with Crosby and Hannahan and Davis and so forth in the lineup, Giambi doesn't really...

What To Do With Zito ...

Be realistic for a moment:  what should the Giants do with Zito?  He got killed again today:  lots of walks, lots of hits, 5 runs in 2 innings.  He isn't just bad any more.  He isn't just really...

Worst Game Ever?

Hard to argue with that game Lidle pitched, game 4 of the ALCS against the Yankees.  Hard to argue with the A's going 0 for 13 (was it?) with RISP in game 1 of the ALCS against the Tigers.   But...

Chavvy Prediction Time ...

With Chavvy set to come back soon, and apparently fully healthy, I'd be curious to know what ANers think he will do this year.  Yeah, it will probably take him some time to adjust to big league...

Dollar Off Per Hit? Help, Please...

Although I go to about 20 A's games a year I never actually buy tickets at the box office.  I always buy them from the scalpers on the bridge from BART.  So what's this about $1 off Sunday tickets...

Competing with the Yankees

Nice to see our small market club in first place, and I was just going to enjoy it for a while.  Then I saw this on the internet today:  A friend called last week to tell me he'd been offered 4...

Is Crosby Dumb?

Like most on AN, I know I spend too much time following the A's. But did you read what Crosby said to the Chron this morning?: Crosby got the MLB TV package so he could follow the A's while away...

Mark Ellis Bobblehead

ANers know I have a long-time and exaggerated sense of the worth and contribution of Mark Ellis.  I'm 43 years old and actually have the Ellis name on an A's jersey - how pathetic is that?

AN Goes to All Star Game at ATT Park

I lucked into amazing tickets at the last minute for last night's All Star Game.  I've been to 4 All Star Games now (the last 3 Bay Area games plus 1979's in Seattle) and this was the most...

Critical Two Weeks For the A's...

For my money, this whole Bradley thing make me sick, and I think him being gone clearly makes the team worse on both offense and defense going into the most important two weeks of their schedule....

No Milton, No Pennant?

Obviously Billy did what he felt he had to do, but is it too early to begin drawing conclusions?  I'd like to hear your thoughts.  For the same of discussion, please assume that the A's get...

Kendall's OPS Percentage

Just looked it up ... Kendall's OPS (on base plus slugging) is .414.  The next lowest player in all of baseball is .541.  Think about that.  127 points separate Kendall from the next worst guy in...

Kendall Conspiracy Mystery

The only way I can understand the A's letting Kendall hit in the bottom of the 7th of a tie game last night with a runner at third and one out is that Kendall must have a hostage somewhere in the...

Chavvy Can't Hit

Awesome win!  OK, now my favorite topic: Given the crap ARod gets for failing in the clutch, can you even imagine what the NY media would do to Chavvy?  As bad as Chavvy has always been in the...

We're barely a week in, much too soon to make generalizations, but what the heck?  Isn't it amazing how much this club already looks like last year's club?  Not that there should be any great...

Two Out of Three Ain't Bad

I'm normally an A's pessimist, but I still think the A's have a good shot at winning this Series.  Personally, I would prefer to see Haren and not Harden in Game 3, but whatever.  Obviously, if the...

Perez in the Post-Season

Forgive the diary on such an obvious topic, but in the unlikely event that Chavvy or somebody else in the infield can't play in the post-season, the A's simply can't play Antonio Perez. Don't get...
