OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: June Comeback
The A's are only the sixth team in major-league history to return to even after sinking 15 games under.
The others: Pittsburgh (1965), Houston (1969), St. Louis (1973), the White Sox (2001) and Tampa Bay (2004).
I doubt any of the others bounced back as quickly as the A's did in June and July (so far).

Unfortunately, none of those 5 teams made the playoffs, including the dominant Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Hopefully, we will be the first - we are just 3 games out of the wild card. Go A's!
BTW - I will be heading into enemy territory this week to see our Green and Gold play the California/Anaheim/West Coast/SoCal Angels of Los Angeles/Orange County. I will be going with a few Giants fans who will be rooting the A's, because they hate the Angels. It should be a hoot.

I'll be there Wednesday oakchick.
I can't bring myself to hate the angels like I hate the Yankees & giants. They're just not a hateable team. Lots of class acts on the team and exciting players.
I expect some green and gold to be represented in the stands as usual!
