Athletics @ Astros Series Preview

Jack and Lily landed in Lihue with little in their pockets and nothing on the schedule.  No jobs lined up, no place to stay, no black-tie driver holding a placard with “Wandering College Graduates” scrawled upon it.  Just a young couple with hopes and dreams and other applicable Neil Diamond lyrics.  They figured they’d figure [...]

Mariners drop eighth straight to Astros

Mariners drop eighth straight to Astros

Erasmo snatches his third loss of the season as the M's fall to 7-13 on Tuesday. Hi. Hi everyone. You may have heard about the Mariners. On Tuesday, the Mariners, a baseball team situated in Seattle Washington, lost their eighth straight game of baseball, falling to the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. The Astros are considered by many to be the worst team in all of baseball, but currently only have one more loss than the Mariners. It was a bad game. We've recapped a lot of baseball games over the past eight days. Each and every one of them has described a Mariner loss. I could do that...

It’s All Porter’s Fault

Astros 7, [ugh] Mariners2 W: Keuchel L: King Felix Hernandez box score Well, the question about Porter and his managing started early in this one. He had Dominguez DH’ing and Gonzalez playing 3B. I have questioned it before and I rather did last night again. But, Porter pulled the win out of the jaws of [...]

Astros @ Mariners Series Preview

Pigfucker My 4-year-old son told me yesterday about a great movie he watched with his (maternal) grandparents.  He couldn’t remember the movie’s title other than it was “not Frozen,” which is about all that matters in our household these days, but he remembered the ending in detail. Apparently the protagonist bell cow was on some [...]

Game #18: A's vs. Astros

The A's and Astros do battle on this holiday Sunday, with Oakland looking to complete the sweep — first pitch from the Coliseum is set for 1:05. Happy Holidays, Athletics Nation! For the purpose of helping you enjoy Easter Sunday, the sixth day of Passover, or whatever other holiday you might be celebrating on this 20th day of April, the A's are looking to complete their second sweep of the season against the bottom-dwelling Houston Astros, who have managed to fall 7.5 games behind Oakland in the AL West Standings just three weeks into the season. The A's are red-hot through 17 games,...

Post-Game #17: A's walk-off, 14 hits beat Astros 4-3

Post-Game #17: A's walk-off, 14 hits beat Astros 4-3

The A's won on three ninth-inning runs, with Reddick swatting the game-winning hit. It appeared that the Athletics would end up leaving far too many men on the bases, but ninth inning heroics from Jed Lowrie, Josh Donaldson, Yoenis Cespedes, Alberto Callaspo, and Josh Reddick allowed the A's to pull off a four to three victory over the Astros at the Coliseum. Your recap will appear here shortly.

Statistics Don’t Lie

The statistically important thing is that a male’s most productive years are at the height of his sexual drive, between the ages of 18 and 32. During those years males will do their best, most innovative work. Theory of relativity? Young male. Cubism? Young males. DNA was invented by young males.

Astros Series Preview: Q&A with David Coleman of The Crawfish Boxes

With the A's and Astros squaring off for three games, I asked David Coleman of The Crawfish Boxes a few questions about his favorite team. Here's what he had to say! The Oakland Athletics survived a brutal series in Anaheim against the Angels and finished their road trip with an impressive 7-2 record. Granted, that mark could have been 8-1, but it also could have been 5-4 if not for a couple of late-inning comebacks against the Halos -- so, all things considered, it's difficult not to be satisfied with the final tally. The A's enter their three-game series against the Houston Astros with...

Royals @ Astros Series Preview

submitted by Bench   It’s wonderfully early in the season, which means we can believe that the quality pitching will continue but that the bats will somehow turn around.  It could happen, so we might as well indulge ourselves.  Sadly, “it could happen” is always the dark side of the coin that the Royals represent.  [...]

It's unlikely, but the Astros can take the series with a win today.

Astros @ Rangers

(submitted by austro)   Thank You, Sir! May I Have Another? Houston Astros (4-6) @ Texas Rangers (4-5)   The Astros generally fare poorly in Arlington at Whatever-It’s-Called-Today Ballpark-or-Stadium-or-Field, and given the recent performance of their wet noodle bats, there’s not much reason for optimism this time around, either. On the other hand, they’re playing [...]
