Game #100: Johnson Turns Cespedes Blowout Into Doolittle Save

A's fans: Let's do it, so awesome; we dropped a 5-spot on the Astros, and another two, and we're leading 7-0 and 8-1, we're rolling, let's go! Oh, it's 9-2! Let's bring in Jim Johnson! Totally perfect spot! We're up by a touchdown; no worries right? HOLY HELL WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS GAME?! I didn't know the Astros could score 5-runs in an inning like we did? What is happening? Why is the tying run up? HELP US GREGERSON! Why is Doolittle getting a save? Is Cespedes hurt? WHY OH WHY? Wait, we win? WE STILL WIN! And end scene. FEELINGS! We have FEELINGS! There are a lot of things that...

Twitter apoplectic over Jim Johnson's latest meltdown

Twitter apoplectic over Jim Johnson's latest meltdown

Our third attempt to predict Jim Johnson's demise. While this website has now twice predicted Jim Johnson's demise, Wednesday night's performance, conceding four runs, three earned, to the Houston Astros in the eighth inning, completely took the cake. This is the first time that Jim Johnson has been handed a lead of any kind since June 15, where, given a 7-run lead in the ninth against the New York Yankees, he gave up two runs and could not finish the inning, leaving two on and two out after giving up two hits and two walks, including a home run. Bob Melvin said after the game he hoped to...

A’s survive another Johnson debacle to beat Astros 9-7

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at the Coliseum Oakland had a laugher over the Astros pretty much wrapped up on Wednesday when Jim Johnson entered the game with a seven-run lead. In what well might have been the beleaguered reliever’s last appearance with the A’s, Johnson didn’t retire a batter and was charged with four of Houston’s five runs in the eighth. Set-up man Luke Gregerson had to enter what had been a blowout to get the final two outs of the inning and closer Sean Doolittle had to nail down Oakland’s 9-7 win in the ninth. Johnson, who was bounced from the closer...

Jason Hammel reports Monday: Is this the end for Jim Johnson or Brad Mills?

On Monday, the Oakland Athletics will need to make one last 25-man roster move when Jason Hammel formally reports to the club ahead of his likely Wednesday debut at AT&T Park against the San Francisco Giants. On Saturday, the A's made the difficult and perhaps only temporary choice to option Tommy Milone to Sacramento. Monday's move will have far greater ramifications for one member of the bullpen, each of which are out of options: Brad Mills or Jim Johnson. Brad Mills The acquisitions of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel push both Tommy Milone and Brad Mills out of the starting rotation....

Time to make Jim Johnson the Athletics' long man

Jim Johnson's nightmare season is continuing, but he's shown signs of life recently as a multi-inning reliever. Is it time to make that his permanent role? Jim Johnson is not a bad pitcher. Honest. He's having a nightmare of a season, but he is most definitely talented. Now, that doesn't mean that I want him pitching important innings in close games -- even good players can go on slumps in which they are not their normal fantastic selves, and at those times a shrewd manager should avoid putting them in positions to monumentally fail and cost their teams wins. But when you have a good player...
