Not done yet? A's fielding calls on Jason Hammel, Zobrist available

Billy Beane might not be done quite yet. This is, after all, what happens when you put together a team with four bona fide aces and another plus starter in Jesse Chavez — quality pitchers like Jason Hammel (yes, Jason Hammel is still a good pitcher) fall to the floor like breadcrumbs. The rest of MLB is hungry, apparently: Source: #Athletics getting "flooded" with calls on Hammel. Weren’t planning to trade him, but . . . — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 31, 2014 The move would make sense, given that Hammel doesn't seem to have much of a future on the 2014 A's other than...

Jason Hammel was God-awful on Wednesday

After Jason Hammel's God-awful performance on Wednesday is it finally time to drop Jason Hammel from the rotation? My first tennis coach was quite the character. Like most coaches who have "been around" he had seen it all. He was pretty cool about losses and usually found a way to turn a loss into what he would call "a teaching moment"; he'd put his arm around his student, walk around the complex and attempt to soothe the bruised ego of the student by bringing up something he or she did right during the loss. Sometimes it would be difficult to do and rarely if ever did he use his favorite...

Game #107: Hammel Shelled for 8 in Series Loss

It's not often in the 2014 season that an A's game is a complete and utter loss and waste of time and at-bats, and especially not after the first inning, but that's what we were treated to today as Jason Hammel was exactly as bad in the first inning as a pitcher is allowed to be without being yanked immediately. His 6 runs in the first set the A's up for failure, and the offense didn't bother; one comeback in two days is enough as they fell 8-1. Baseball's a funny game. Hilarious even. Obviously, this isn't one of those times. Today was horrible. Only in the most ironic or sarcastic...

Jason Hammel rocked again, A’s lose 8-1

HOUSTON – The closer the A’s have gotten to the trade deadline, the more their rotation depth has seemed to be in question. Their top three starters – Scott Kazmir, Sonny Gray and Jeff Samardzija — are as good as any threesome in the American League. No. 4 man Jesse Chavez, while consistent most of the first half in his first season as a starter, is coming off his worst outing. Then there’s Jason Hammel. The A’s lost to the Astros 8-1 on Wednesday, and Hammel’s fingerprints were all over it. While the A’s are a proven come-from-behind team, Hammel gave them virtually no chance...

Jason Hammel, the other pitcher the Oakland Athletics got in the trade with Jeff Samardzija , is still adjusting to his new team. And is still without a victory.

Let's not freak out about Jason Hammel

Let's not freak out about Jason Hammel

The other pitcher the Athletics got in the Shark trade is off to an inauspicious start in Oakland. The Oakland Athletics spent big to get Jason Hammel. Sure, he was just tagging along behind the larger haul of Jeff Samardzija, but he did not come cheaply. So, it comes as no surprise that A's fans expect a lot from him. Unfortunately, he has stumbled out of the gate in his first two starts in green and gold; he was behind Oakland's only loss to the Giants, and he got smoked in his subsequent effort against the Orioles. That shaky first impression has a lot of folks second-guessing Beane's...

Newcomers Samardzija, Hammel to start second half for A's

Manager Bob Melvin said Oakland A's will go with Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel because they have pitched fewer stressful innings that Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir and Jesse Chavez.
