losing cespedes hurts. that's not news. but it's not a killer. he's not in the elite hitter class.

we have a 7 game lead on the WC2 spot. yeah, it'd be nuts.

let's say that hammel had more positive results than he was good. teehee.

no. he said hoping for a WC spot. that means chasing WC2, not in the lead for WC1.

heck DET is on the verge of being in the chase for WC2

i thought bringing in cook today was a terrible idea. but i ate the comment because i didn't want to be negative.

i like your style. i admire your passion. it just wouldn't be a good look for me.
Commented on Game Thread #121: A's at Kansas City (3) on Aug 14 2014, 5:48p
this is why i wanted you to write about run differential vs purely the offense given that we traded offense for pitching.

somebody said that utley will only void his NTC if the phillies tell him that his career is over and they no longer want him. seems unlikely.

i think that'd be very helpful. be the best trainman you can be. but just dial the volume back a bit.

and for three years now i've been ranting that cook needs clean starts to innings. he's bad with runners on.

and what purpose does it serve anyway? for a fan of the a's to predict failure?

i think that's the point. SSS.

we have 3 new starts in our top 5. maybe it's taking longer than expected but these guys can pitch and our catchers will learn to use their best pitches eventually.

at least abad is decent vs righties too, if there is a pinch hitter.

even miggy cabrera fails 60% of the time. it's the prediction of failure even before the at bats starts which kills me.

there's no way that's sustainable for a team. on some level its luck. just like hitting every hung curveball or bad pitch.

i appreciate your passion. i feel the same way you do quite a bit. i just monitor my posts. i feel like my venting makes me more negative and more angry. it doesn't make me feel better.
Commented on Game Thread #121: A's at Kansas City (3) on Aug 14 2014, 5:11p
my point is the pitching has been not carrying its fair share of the load. but focus on what you want.

dude, i do econometrics for a living. i know this stuff far better than you. i understand how averages work. for some reason, you think the a's are unique in how they accumulate runs over a season. i'm saying they're not. you're lost, not me.

in the community guidelines, you can get a strike for being persistently negative and can get banned for the same. there are some on this site that walk the wrong side of the line but never get called out.
