Alvarez has a quantifiable problem with lefties. Shocked he didn't bother to swing at the 3-1 fastball, yet opted to take a cut at the 3-2 junk.


He actually has a better avg vs lefties than righties

I'm not sure they got him at first...but I'll take it after this past week.

Pretty sure he has better numbers versus lefties. Just a bad at bat man.

Friggin Oakland whistlers. I hate watching the astros play in this garbage stadium with these annoying fans. Good riddance A's.

So for Kyle Tucker to be eligible for post-season play, does he only need to play 1 game in August?

HOLY S**T; we won the game. We really needed that W or we would be in a real bad spot. We get the Tigers for three and the A's get the Yankees for three. We really need to sweep Detroit. That would negate anything the A's do.

I was about ready to pee my shorts. Alleluia!

Wife and I have tickets for Sat & Sun next weekend at the Juice Box.

Thank god Luhnow pulled off that last minute deal for Greinke. If we had to start Sneed or Urquidy against this A's lineup today, we'd only be 5.5 up right now. So nice to have another horse to lean on when we get into a funk.

I am not absolutely sure but I think is getting confused with the old rule where you couldn't make a waiver trade after August 31 and have the player be eligible for the postseason. I am pretty sure anybody in your organization on September 1 is eligible...don't even have to be on the 40 man roster. I know that sounds crazy but I am 99% sure I've read that before.

I hope the A's sweep the Yankees. I'm really not worried about Oakland catching us.

Time to come home and string together some W's.

yes, the best record ship has just about sailed off the horizon.

the Yankees started the season 8-10. Since then NYY is 75-32.

they had a 3-8 stretch in June, but other than that no bad stretches since May 1st.

the Astros won't be able to catch them unless the Yankees play a bad 2 weeks of baseball


What is nuts about this, is they are still missing key weapons due back in September.


We are single series sweep both ways from being ahead of them again.

One series.

We still have a very good chance of securing home field.

Home field over Yankees is not a big deal. Between Verlander/Cole you expect at least a split in NY, then we have Greinke and Miley at home. And I feel a lot better about Miley at home than in Yankee Stadium.

Not sure I agree. In the 2017 ALCS the home team won every game. And in 7 regular season games this year the home team won 6.

He's hitting .357 against them.

Quantify that for us. Is that good?

This says .357

Either way, not too shabby.
