I'm a little surprised Ladendorf hasn't been called up yet
Commented on Athletics roster analysis: The case for Tyler Ladendorf to start Thursday night against C.J. Wilson on Aug 28 2014, 1:40p - 1 reply
Remember in April when people were saying that Callaspo would be our starting DH all year
Commented on Game #128: Back to the top! Athletics 2, Angels 1 on Aug 24 2014, 3:15a
I really hate the idea of using 12 pitchers in a 5-game series

The Nate Silver "secret sauce" hasn't really worked since it was introduced

Meh

This is a bit much. Anyone can beat anybody

Yeah the angels have no depth except for OF/DH

Being emotionally invested in the games

Of course if Detroit gets passed

NL central race looks great

That's how he's been doing it for three years and it's worked just fine
Commented on Game #113: Sogard Homers in A's Loss on Aug 7 2014, 2:32p
I think the point still stands
Commented on Game #113: Sogard Homers in A's Loss on Aug 7 2014, 1:26a
Sure. He hits about one sac fly a month
Commented on Game #113: Sogard Homers in A's Loss on Aug 7 2014, 12:57a
Lester will face more batters this year than Cespedes will face pitchers
Commented on Game #113: Sogard Homers in A's Loss on Aug 7 2014, 12:54a
Agreed
Commented on Game #112: Hammel, bullpen combine for shutout, A's extend AL West lead on Aug 6 2014, 3:16p
Kuiper is adequate and inoffensive
Commented on Game #112: Hammel, bullpen combine for shutout, A's extend AL West lead on Aug 6 2014, 3:15p
That's probably a demotion for Braden

It's been on national TV every other year

It hasn't been that rare in practice

I like the second wild card
Commented on Why The Wild Card Game Should Be A Two-Game Series on Aug 6 2014, 3:28a
Ha yeah
Commented on Game #112: Hammel, bullpen combine for shutout, A's extend AL West lead on Aug 6 2014, 3:14a
Love this idea

BB ain't gonna give his first nine figure contract out to a 30 year old pitcher

it was a ball on pitch f/x IIRC

This is the same statistic that led people to pick Crosby as MVP in 2006
Commented on How much do the Athletics really lose with Yoenis Cespedes gone? on Aug 4 2014, 8:12a
I don't think Fuld should be reverse platooned
Commented on How much do the Athletics really lose with Yoenis Cespedes gone? on Aug 4 2014, 8:00a
A healthy Reddick with a 113 wRC+ is a borderline star
Commented on Game #110: Royals flush A's three aces in series loss - Athletics 2, Royals 4 on Aug 4 2014, 3:30a
Clearly Reddick needs to teach the rest of the guys how to hit a fastball
Commented on Game #110: Royals flush A's three aces in series loss - Athletics 2, Royals 4 on Aug 4 2014, 3:20a
I think the team still gets those
Commented on What will the Athletics payroll look like in 2015? on Aug 4 2014, 3:13a
There are a dozen Kyle Blanks floating around baseball at any time
Commented on Decompression: What Beane Could Have, Maybe Should Have, Done on Aug 3 2014, 2:50p
Seems kind of pointless to speculate now

When has this ever been a problem?
Commented on Decompression: What Beane Could Have, Maybe Should Have, Done on Aug 3 2014, 1:48p - 1 reply
We have 3 2b with playoff experience
Commented on Decompression: What Beane Could Have, Maybe Should Have, Done on Aug 3 2014, 1:44p
I don't think Jack Z and Amaro are risk averse at all. Probably the opposite
Commented on Decompression: What Beane Could Have, Maybe Should Have, Done on Aug 3 2014, 1:42p
Never had a rotation like this before?
Commented on Decompression: What Beane Could Have, Maybe Should Have, Done on Aug 3 2014, 1:26p - 1 reply
Yeah I totally agree
Commented on What will the Athletics payroll look like in 2015? on Aug 3 2014, 1:13p
10 pitchers is enough but I can't remember the A's ever carrying 10
Commented on Lester, Gomes For Cespedes Trade: The Long And Short Of It on Aug 3 2014, 12:47p
Appreciate the article, but no way the A's are anywhere near top 10 in NOI

Believe it or not most postseason revenue is shared among the league, including gate receipts

Maybe they're right to give him another chance
Commented on Game Thread #109: A's vs. Royals (3) on Aug 2 2014, 7:07p
yall remember last August when AN was saying the same thing about our offense
Commented on Game #108: Our worst narrative nightmare confirmed, Jeremy Guthrie shuts out A's on Aug 2 2014, 1:07p
no more ridiculous than saying that Beane is an idiot for not DFAing Hammel
Commented on Game #108: Our worst narrative nightmare confirmed, Jeremy Guthrie shuts out A's on Aug 2 2014, 12:57p
because hes starting today vs a lefty and catchers basically never catch a day game after a night
Commented on Game #108: Our worst narrative nightmare confirmed, Jeremy Guthrie shuts out A's on Aug 2 2014, 12:50p
reddick's wRC+ is 104 after last night's game

Voted on Aug 2 2014, 11:38a
I'd think Blanks or Freiman would start vs a LHP during the playoffs

Different defensive stats mostly

Ok, seems really unlikely though

That's just a large section of sports fandom, unfortunately
