Farmers Only: James Vasquez plays the hero

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre 9, Louisville 1 It was a rough night for Bats starter Josh Smith. After getting the first out of the game he gave up a HBP, single, single, and walk. All of this was followed by a Chris "Chicken" Parmelee grand slam. Smith gave up another run in the second, and the Bats replaced him with Layne Somsen "that I used to know" to start the third. Smith's line looked a little like this: 2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 2 BB, 1 SO. Samson gave up two on a 4th inning homer to Nick Swisher. Stephen "Johnson and" Johnson gave up Parmelee's second homer of the night in the 5th. Dayan "and day...

The 2005 Oakland A's season can happen again in 2016

Hope is such a wonderful thing. It beats the heck out of the alternative. You would have thought that the 2005 Oakland Athletics campaign reached its nadir after the A's lost their eighth straight contest and 11th of their last 12, taking them to 14-23 in the middle of May. Gone were two of the Big Three, and the remaining one, Barry Zito, was off on the wrong foot, owning a 5.54 ERA in his first eight starts. Oakland was placing its staff ace, Rich Harden, on the disabled list with an oblique injury that would keep him out for a month. Right fielder Nick Swisher, their top prospect, was...

Swisher called his spring release from the Braves a “slap in the face” because it was done so late in the spring, limiting his opportunities to go elsewhere.
