As I mentioned before, it’s somewhat unique watching a game where I have a mild rooting (or typically, rooting against) interest, say less invested than a typical A’s regular season game.

The division series teams are set. Nope, still no O’s. In today’s links, a vote of confidence for the coaches, pondering the Jimenez effect, and a photographer gets a profile. Hello, friends.
