Every year the same. Heartless little sissy at bats with runners on base. I'm soooooo sick of the slow starts I can't stand it. Come on guys show some life.
You'd think it'd be differnt this year...this isn't the same group of players from the 99-03 teams
Make that 10 left on.
Up by one run now...if the A's could ever get a hit with RISP...they'd should be up by 3 or 4 runs.
OH GOD can we get a shut down inning we get some runs and just give them right back. Losers.
Blanton was lucky to get out of the 6th only giving up one run.
Were going to lose
duke in the ninth in texas
Yea I was wrong
Street not availalbe again? Gee I'm shocked an A's pitcher with a "minor" injury missing more time than expected. I mean the A's never downplay pitcher injuries ever...
Duke I trust...throw his bad outing against Det..he's thrown 10 innings of perfect baseball.
Early on I was sure all of the LOB were going to
I'm still worried how similar this team is to last year's team. Too many anemic bats. We only seem to win when our pitching is lights out or the other team self destructs. Kendall is not the same guy as in Pittsburgh. And Crosby is always hurt.
last year I had totally written them off and since there was no real expections it did not matter.
The only constant this year and years past is MACHA. He must not know how to prepare the A'S for the beginning of the season IMO. Tonight, the A'S were lucky.
I said that in an earlier thread,
Yep. Every April no sense of urgency as after all, its just April. Well these games count too and one of these years the A's are going to dig a hole they can't get out of.
Also throw it'd be next to impossible for the A's to dig as big a hole as they did last year and yet they still made a race out of it.
It will be tougher to dig out this year with Texas and Seattle having improved.
Hopefully when Ellis and Frank's bats get hot Swish, Chavey & Miltys won't cool down.
Great Harden Hurt and a another lose looming in Texas. I just got tickets to see the A's in San diego I hope we are not out of the picture by then.
