OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: A's/Angels
Since the start of the last season they have now played 12 one run games against each other (23 games). Not good for the blood pressure.
Part of following these guys is getting the right medication, and double-dosing between now and July is a green-and-gold duty.
I got up and left the house for the 9th inning I could not watch. I drove into Montclair village by my house to get a salad as i drove by Crogans I peeked in the windows at the tv by the bar and saw the angels were still up so i did not turn on the radio. I got home found out we won and turned on the tivo and watched the 9th inning. I could not stand it the Angels fans have to be super pissed off at thier weak offence
Oh come on LF don't be a pussy. If I could gut out the 9th I know you can.
Yea wash i went way out to the sissy farm on this game. I was sure Anderson had got us again and could not watch the 9th at all.
Today's game is gonna be tough...Lackey has always pitched tough against the A's and Halsey will be making his first ever start for the A's.
The A'S were lucky in not facing Colon, although Carassco pitched great, and the Angels were unlucky facing Zito last night. For today's game it switches, the Angels are lucky today for not facing Harden while the A'S are unlucky for facing Lackey this afternoon.
So that means that Halsey will pitch great!
Even Macha said that game was "not for the faint of heart."
No TV in the Valley. Was there a game last night?
I had quietly wondered last night after Kotsay's catch in the 9th if he had hurt his left shoulder as he had Payton throw the ball in for him. Well he's out of the line up today, Bradley is still out (I'm thinking the DL is not far away), so we get our worst nightmare...Bobby Kielty against a right handed pitcher. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
So far, so good. 3-run bomb for Chavez, shutdown inning from Halsey.
Or maybe Kotsay is getting a day off. Probably sore not injured...glass half full!
Kielty strikes out swinging after Kendall works a hit...can we trade this guy back to the B-Jays or KC?
Man Mark Ellis really not playing well right now. I know he got a few knocks the other night but he is batting .185 right now - not Ellis like at all.
It's official...DJ doesn't have the lowest BA now for all everday players.
A's blow out the game in the 9th with 6 runs..capping it out with a 3 run hr by Crosby.
Let's not forget that Payton has *2* RBIs this season and NO walks!
"Big statement today to not only go in there and charge the mound and heat things up with the Angels but also to punk them for 10 runs in the process, dismantle their bullpen, and hold them down, all while throwing a spot starter out there, the day after your "ace" shuts them down"
you mean fat mike???
Bring on the bad blood. We got ourselves a real AL West rivalry! It's going to be fun next time we see the Angels in June.

There were about 500 people left in the stadium, and some woman was standing up holding a sign that read "Beat LA".
Sounds like a misplaced Giants' fan calling her hubby and telling him, "I think I took a wrong turn."
