Game #18: A's Win for Earth

Game #18: A's Win for Earth

It’s Earth Day, and thousands of some of the most intelligent and enthusiastic citizens of the nation took to the streets to celebrate baseball’s greenest, greatest team on the Earth, our Oakland A’s. Much like the Earth, the A’s have been getting hotter as of late, winning four consecutive games coming into today’s matchup, and with Jharel Cotton taking on Ariel Miranda the A’s were looking to push that streak to five. The A’s did a lot of recycling this offseason, reusing the likes of Adam Rosales, Santiago Casilla, and more, and many of the recycled A’s products would...

Since You Didn’t Ask: Bullpen Roles

Since You Didn’t Ask: Bullpen Roles

The A’s are meeting today with their relievers to spell out roles, but clearly whoever is in charge of these meetings is not very well organized. The meeting is just hours away and somehow I still have yet to get my official invitation. Yet clearly everyone agrees that these decisions should be made by "some dude on the internet". Before the A’s announce their actual decision, let me share how it would go if I were king. I am going to include, in my analysis, Santiago Casilla, even though after watching him throw last night from a strangely low arm slot, lob in sliders that had less...

Spring Game #32: A’s cap off Arizona by losing 15-11

Spring Game #32: A’s cap off Arizona by losing 15-11

It certainly wasn’t the best game of the Spring, but it might’ve been the most game of the Spring. But real baseball is less than a week away! The Bay Area will finally have baseball again tomorrow, but the A’s still had to finish off their time in Arizona. The pitching staff apparently didn’t get the memo. The pitching schedule was extremely weird from the get-go – Santiago Casilla made the start for the A’s, with the bullpen (Sean Doolittle and Ryan Madson) pitching the next two innings. That was before 2016 draftee Daulton Jefferies came in for the “start”, going for 2.2...
