Game #64: Cotton Implodes in 8-1 Loss

Game #64: Cotton Implodes in 8-1 Loss

Jharel Cotton got knocked around the 5th inning and the A’s couldn’t get the offense going at all. Jharel Cotton and the somehow-still-here Josh Smith combined to give up 8 runs, while the only run the A’s managed was on a balk. Not much else to this one. The Only Offense 2nd inning. Yonder Alonso smoked the first pitch he saw for a single. Chad Pinder got hit by a pitch and Matt Joyce worked a fantastic 12-pitch at-bat and eventually singled to right field to load the bases with 1 out - Stanton's arm was too strong and Alonso was too slow for Chip Hale to send him home. Josh Phegley...

Matt Joyce is finally hitting like he was supposed to for the Oakland A’s

Matt Joyce is finally hitting like he was supposed to for the Oakland A’s

Last winter the Oakland A’s signed several stopgap veteran hitters to one-year contracts, which helped fill some holes in the lineup while their prospects developed. They gave two years to outfielder Matt Joyce, though, and with the larger commitment came the hope that he might be more than just a warm body. After a strong 2016 season, could a further breakout be coming? Joyce, April: .167/.230/.288, 40 wRC+, 2 HR, 6.8% BB, 20.3% Ks (in 74 PAs) Welp. Of course, we know better than to put full stock in one month of baseball stats. In fact, Joyce profiled as one of the unluckiest hitters in...

Athletics vs Blue Jays: Jays Soaring

Athletics vs Blue Jays: Jays Soaring

The A’s dramatic comeback yesterday may have been for naught, but at the very least the offense is showing some signs of life by putting up ten runs two games in a row. Also showing some signs of life is the front office, dipping into the minor leagues and calling Matt Olson up to the show as his numbers were simply too hot to ignore for the Sounds and right field has been a black hole of a position all season for the A’s. Olson drew a key bases-loaded walk during yesterday’s ninth inning rally, though Olson’s direct competition in Matt Joyce dealt the biggest blow of that frame...

Faltering defense continues to be A's unwanted storyline

NEW YORK A weekend that began with promise instead wound up feeling like another lost opportunity for the As.Their defense once again paved the way to their undoing Sunday, and there were plenty of players willing to accept responsibility for a 9-5 loss to the Yankees in the rubber match of a three-game series in the Bronx.When right fielder Matt Joyce had a catchable fly ball pop out of his glove for a third-inning error that loaded the bases, it seemed inevitable the mistake would come back to haunt the As.
