With his 21st HR today, Jack is now tied for 10th in the AL in HRs. He has done this in only 286 ABs.

Of the top 50 HR hitters in the AL, there are only 2 with a higher HR per AB ratio:

1. Alex Rodriguez NYY 42 HR, 461 AB, 10.98 AB/HR
2. Carlos Pena (remember him from 2002?) TB 28 HR, 368 AB, 13.14 AB/HR
3. Jack Cust OAK 21 HR, 286 AB, 13.62 AB/HR

Beane did it again.
Cust has carried this offense and kept the A's in the race. We are now at .500 and getting outstanding pitching. Can the A's catch the M's for the wildcard?

Tell me, are the M's so strong that they are going to run away with this? Who is in their rotation again?

No the M's are not.

Plus the Ms have to make up for a lot of lost time earlier in the season against a tough Cleveland team.

I thought they already made up at least a couple of those Cleveland games? And because of the schedule, it seems to me that one of them will be made up at Seattle. Not sure about all that, but I thought that was what I heard.

I dont know, I just know they have played 4 fewer games than the A's up to this point and thats a lot.

I heard recently that the M's have already made up 2 of the games.

I see where the M's are scheduled to play one game in Cleveland on the 30th (they start a series at Toronto the next day), so obviously, that is one of the make up games. Then Cleveland has a series in Seattle the last week of the season. So, my best guess is they have two games left to make up, if what I think I heard about one of them having to be at Seattle, is true. I'm sure 8/30 (Thursday) was a scheduled offday for them and since they have a game in Seattle on Wednesday, I assume they will play only one game in Cleveland on that day, unless I'm wrong about the games they've already made up.

I think I heard Buan saying they have 44 games in 45 days. Pretty brutal if you ask me. In preparation for that, I know Beane would have moved for a couple of arms spot starter type arms in preparation for that. All the M's did was add Parrish.

They are in hot Texas this weekend, 3 at home with LAA, makeup game in Cle, 3 games in Toronto, 3 in NY, off day, 3 in Detroit, home for Oak and TB for 7, they do get to steal one of the Cleveland snow games at Safeco when Cleveland comes in, a DH no less.
