Game #42: Houston Astros 6, Oakland A's 1

The Athletics could not overcome one of the favorites for the American League Cy Young Award, and ultimately were left without a chance after the Astros broke it open in the eighth inning. Today's story is one of doing more than enough to lose with the A's dropping the final game of the series--Astros 6, Athletics 1--and falling to 14-28. Initially, the A's had their chances against the early favorite for the American League Cy Young award and gave him plenty of traffic on the bases. The A's went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position, however, and no runs scored on the hit because it...

GameThread #40: A's at Astros

The last place Oakland Athletics visit the first place Houston Astros. It appears the many years of mega losing is finally paying dividends for the Houston Astros. Punting a bunch of seasons in favor of testing out youngsters and acquiring draft picks has propelled the Houston Astros to an early lead in the AL West. That being said the division is still anyone's game, despite the double digit deficit the A's have run up on the backs of a 2013 Astros-like bullpen combined with a "Brooks Conrad in the NLDS" level defense. Last place. I guess it's nice to be the guy sitting around munching on...

Oakland A's trail Houston Astros by 9 games: AL West reset

Every off day, we reset the AL West landscape, updating you on the standings and key storylines from around the division. The Houston Astros extended their lead in the AL West to four games from 2½ since the Oakland Athletics last had an off day on April 27, though they led by seven on May 4. We're getting to the point now where even if the Astros begin to play like the 83-loss team FanGraphs projected them to, they'll still win 83 or 84 games, and it will take just a little bit of good luck to play like a .500 team instead and finish on 86 games, which might be enough to win the division...
