were just PLAIN BORING tonight. I couldn't keep my eyes open for this yawner.
Yeah, didn't help there was only 12k at the colisuem tonight and the A's did all they can to pretty much kill any chance of getting the crowd excited as they left 12 on base in tonight's game.
to me they are down about 5-7k a game i think those r the third deck people that idea has bombed big time
I agree Sacto. The 3rd deck closure will prove to be a major mistake and may also be proved intentional.
Maybe but it was just plain cooold tonight and it was the D-Rays....
Actually the A's attendance has been up this year at this point compared to last year. Not including tonight's game.
The 3rd deck closing was a good idea. The overall attendance so far is about the same, however the standard deviation is much better. Tonight's attendance was the lowest so far at 12k, whereas last year they drew 10k 4 times at this point in the season. The A's will really cash in if they are in contention down the stretch.
They are playing the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
Will be interesting to see if the Swisher bobblehead draws a big crowd today.
Really lucky today...that 9th was looking bad after they blew that 1st and 2nd with no outs situation with Scutaro not being able to get the bunt down.
UGLY WIN but I'd take it.
I got to the park around noon and still got a bobblehead. Made me think there would be a small crowd, but there were 25K.
Since no one has brought it up the only blurb on Duchscherer's injury was sore right elbow which was reported he was having problems last week as well. I've noticed earlier this year how he'd be shaking his right arm after pitches on a regular basis. When you hear about elbow problems with a pitcher typically the prognosis isn't good.
That would be a big loss.
Can you say Cortisone shot.
