A's roll past Rangers again

Coco Crisp, Khris Davis lead the power show as rejuvenated A’s rally for 6-4 win

Is Coco Crisp’s RISP production worth a second look?

Coco Crisp isn’t talked about much by those discussing deals that could be made with the trade deadline upon us next Monday. Maybe that’s a mistake. Crisp gave the A’s the lead in Tuesday’s 6-3 win over Texas with a… Continue Reading → The post Is Coco Crisp’s RISP production worth a second look? appeared first on Inside the As.

Game #97: A's Walk It Off In 13, Win 1-0

Reprising his role from four years ago to this date, Coco Crisp walked the A's off the field with the game-winning single in the bottom of the thirteenth inning to score Ryon Healy, whose lead-off double was the only extra-base hit in the game. If you like low-scoring pitchers' duels, was this ever your jam! The A's even the series at 1 in another Friday night thriller in thirteen. I'll be back with all the details....

Game #94: Coco's Boner Ultimately Leads to Good Feelings

The A's win a close, exciting game against the Astros and take game two of the series. Dillon Overton pitched relatively well in his spot start/starting rotation audition by allowing three runs in 6.1 innings pitched, but the offense stayed dormant until the 7th inning and scratched back until tying the game in the bottom of the ninth at 3 via a Coco Crisp game tying hit. Unfortunately and bizarrely, however, Coco was thrown out between second and third base after he assumed he hit a walk off home run, costing the A's a potential victory in the ninth inning and sending the game into extras....

Ryon Healy arrives and Billy Burns is demoted, so Danny Valencia, Coco Crisp can count on seeing diminished time

The A’s will begin  the second half of the season resculpting their lineup, beginning with Friday’s move to send down center fielder Billy Burns and promote 2013 third-round draft pick Ryon Healy, who is the club’s new third baseman. The… Continue Reading → The post Ryon Healy arrives and Billy Burns is demoted, so Danny Valencia, Coco Crisp can count on seeing diminished time appeared first on Inside the As.

Oakland A’s Danny Valencia, Coco Crisp losing playing time, says Bob Melvin

The Athletics are jump-starting their youth movement by cutting back playing time for their best hitter and for one of their clubhouse leaders. Oakland A’s manager Bob Melvin has indicated that a youth movement is afoot for the club in his pre-game meeting with A’s beat writers as we get the second half started: Melvin says with situation #Athletics are in, they need to see what they have with the young kids. Sounds like that's the focus now.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) July 15, 2016 To that end, the A’s are making Ryon Healy the starting third baseman and will be reducing...

What is the A's plan with Coco Crisp and his vesting option?

Some theories on Coco remaining an every day player for the A's. We all know about Coco Crisp's vesting option. If he plays in just 59 of the A's remaining 76 games, he'll be guaranteed an $11 million dollar contract on the 2017 A's. Coco has looked leaps and bounds better than he did last year, but that's only been good enough to make him one of the worst players in the game. Why aren't the A's preventing him from reaching that vesting option? They're asleep at the wheel, in cruise control on their way to wasting buckets of cash Nah. There are plenty of ways to criticize the front office,...

Coco Crisp accepts one-game suspension for tossing bat in direction of umpire

The Athletics outfielder will not appeal the suspension, saying he deserves it for throwing his bat towards home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn, but that he did not intend to hit him. Major League Baseball issued a one-game suspension to Oakland A’s outfielder Coco Crisp for “intentionally throwing his bat in the direction of home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn, which struck Reyburn on the foot” after striking out in the fifth inning of Thursday’s game (via Jane Lee, MLB.com) in Houston. Crisp will not appeal the suspension and will be unavailable for Friday night’s game against the...

Athletics 3, Twins 1: Hot Coco sinks Twins in the seventh

It wasn't a blowout, but it still didn't end well for the Twins. The Twins just couldn't really get anything going today, because apparently they hate America. Ricky Nolasco had an okay start, going 6 innings and giving up three earned runs on four hits and three walks. But yeah--that was not nearly enough. The Twins managed to load the bases in the bottom of the 4th inning for Max Kepler, who came to the plate and hit an RBI ground out for the Twins' only run of the game. At least they got a run? For America? Coco Crisp ended up hitting in the go-ahead run for the Athletics in the 7th...

Trevor May Off DL, Buddy Boshers Sent To AAA

Ron Gardenhire's secret love child gets to eat Korean BBQ in Rochester with Byung-Ho for now. With Trevor May's rehab stint over, and Eddie Rosario / Kennys Vargas recently given last new chances in the bigs, either an ailing Twin had to be put on the DL or someone required ceremonial execution before May's return. The scapegoat ended up being Buddy Boshers, who had an effective stint in relief for the MLB club: 13.0 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB, 14 SO, 1.38 ERA, 2.48 FIP. Not too shabby. May returns to a last-place team and Boshers goes to a first-place one. Alas, while the mosquitoes in...
