Cmon Chirinos.

We really just let Pujols lumber home and score.

See y'all tomorrow.

Framer had another tough game, but he's a young kid. Hopefully, he'll put it together.

He reminds me a lot of Wandy - he has flashes where he does well and times of complete suckage.

Maybe, like Wandy, he'll eventually make a decent 4 or 5.
Damn that's a great callback. And yes, Wandy was atrocious the first 2-3 seasons he made appearances in the bigs.

The crap he did last year that "almost hit us in the ass" lead to us winning 103 games and winning the division by 6 games.... So I think his strategy is justified.


Key word.. "almost". This board was clutching its nuts the entire month of August while it looked like Oakland was going to pass us. We righted the ship and had a great year overall. But when the team was missing key bats, every boneheaded decision mattered.

Do I have to say it again? Hinch is a great coach.

I can still call out his bad decisions. Get over and move on.
Sure, you can call out his so-called bad decisions. But you are acting like you're ruling on these decisions being bad is a fact. It isn't. It's just your opinion as well. So when people call you out, get over it.

Ok. Top of the lineup. Time to do something. If they are retired quickly, it will be bedtime.

George wants to make it interesting. I hope this is the start of a Springer streak where he gets really hot.

Win or lose this game, damn its good to see George square some up again.

And just a reminder that tomorrow is likely a bullpen game. You can't just yank Framber at the first sign of trouble in 3rd or 4th.

not to pile on...but, yes, Chirinos is fading fast offensively and defensively. It's very noticeable

the A's (53-41) win again. Nice no-show job by the White Sox this weekend.

Oakland is off Monday and hosts dreadful Seattle Tuesday and Wednesday.

poised to gain in the loss column this week while the Astros (59-35) are in Anaheim
A's move within 5 games in the loss column.

let's hope the Mariners show up to play

earlier this season the Padres & Rockies set the MLB record for most combined runs scored in a 4-game series.

the Angels & Astros may get close to it this week
15 combined runs scored in game 1.

should be more of the same Tuesday

Shouldn't have low-balled CFM this past off-season.

Why does everyone think he was low balled? What did they offer him?

He signed a deal for 3 year 45M, but the 3rd year could get cheaper is Charlie spends too much time on the IL. We did not give him the QO of 1 year 17.9 M so i would assume our offer was in the 15-17 M range for 1 year. I'm not sure if it was reported if we ever pumped it to multiple years. Before this year Charlie has earned a total of 45 M in his career and the deal TB offered basically doubles it for the 3 seasons at age 35-37.

He basically said that was the case in an interview at the all star game

IIRC we bumped the offer to 2 years. It was the 3rd year that we were unwilling to do

And to me there's a difference in low balling and coming up short of what TB offered. I don't think he was low balled I think he just wanted the extra year and TB gave it to him.
