A’s Off-Season Quest: DITR FOTR SP

A’s Off-Season Quest: DITR FOTR SP

Anchored by the uncertainty that is Sean Manaea, Kendall Graveman, Daniel Mengden, and Paul Blackburn, the further uncertainty that is Jharel Cotton, Chris Bassitt, Daniel Gossett, Andrew Triggs, and Frankie Montas, and then that whole other category that is Jesse Hahn, the A’s are overtly in the market to add at least one SP to the 2018 mix. Roll snake eyes and that addition could conceivably vault the A’s into the wild card picture, and Oakland has rolled it several times in just the past few seasons. Bartolo Colon was aging and declining, only as it turned out he really wasn’t...

Athletics end last-place season with 5-2 win over Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Daniel Mengden struck out eight, Khris Davis hit his career-best 43rd homer and the last-place Oakland Athletics ended the season with a 5-2 win at Texas on Sunday. The Athletics (75-87) finished at the bottom of the AL West for the third consecutive season, a franchise ...

Strong start for Daniel Mengden, Khris Davis’ 43rd homer power A’s win

ARLINGTON, Texas: Close the book on the A’s 2017 season, and while you’re at it, pencil Daniel Mengden in for a spot in Oakland’s rotation next spring. Mengden, back from a spate of injuries and minor-league time, had the best finish of any of Oakland’s starters and he punctuated that by going seven scoreless innings Sunday in the A’s 5-2 win at Texas. Khris Davis hit his 43rd homer in the eighth inning, establishing a career high, and Jed Lowrie upped his Oakland doubles record to 49 with a two-run liner to left in the third inning.

Short night for Daniel Gossett in A’s loss at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas - With the A’s looking more at next year as the 2017 season dwindles down, every starting pitching performance, good or bad, could impact decisions the team makes this winter. Oakland will have a lot of question marks in the rotation next spring, and while some pitchers helped themselves enormously this month - such as Daniel Mengden, who will get the ball for the season finale against the Rangers on Sunday - others haven’t left quite as strong an impression. Count Saturday starter Daniel Gossett in the latter group. Gossett didn’t even...

Khris Davis hits 42nd homer in A’s 6-3 loss to Mariners

Silver linings are all that’s left for a last-place team playing out the string, and the A’s had quite a few in Tuesday night’s 6-3 loss to the Mariners. How about Khris Davis? The left fielder hit his 42nd home run, matching his 2016 total, and the combined 84 over two years are tied with Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton for most in the majors. Davis’ latest homer was to right field, his specialty. How about Daniel Mengden? The pitcher ran his scoreless innings streak to 19, making a run at making next year’s season-opening rotation, and exited with a...

Game Thread #157: A’s vs. Mariners

Daniel Mengden is on the mound again in Oakland’s final home night game of the season. It’s been a long season and a somehow even longer week. We’ve gotten more press than anytime in the last few years, though not due to our incredible selection of Matts. Bruce Maxwell took a stand by not standing, and I think I got brain poisoning from reading the comments on ESPN’s various articles about the situation - I don’t know what I expected. Dead_dove.jpg. Anyway, my time as the Tuesday game recapper is drawing to a close. Let’s finish things up with a win, shall we? Daniel Mengden...

Game 158, Mariners at Athletics

James Paxton vs. Daniel Mengden, 7:05pm This season hasn’t gone according to plan for either club, and now the games are about seeing something from rookies and planning for the future. Given how different these clubs looked a month and a half ago, or at least, how different these clubs looked at themselves, it’s kind […]
