WEEKEND ROADIE: A’S – RAYS

  On the last day before rosters expanded, we took the drive back up to the O.co Coliseum for a game I had been looking forward to all season. I love the Tampa Bay Rays for how they built their team into a contender and have sustained it since shocking the baseball world by playing […]

WEEKEND ROADIE: A’S-ROYALS MAY 18-19

The season-ticket experience with the Oakland A’s continued two weekends ago and it was our first Saturday night/Sunday day combo trip. The A’s were taking on the Royals, who we now know were just starting a major tailspin. The A’s had taken the Friday night game with some high drama as they bested James Shields by a score […]

WEEKEND ROADIE: ORIOLES AT A’S

Man, what a busy couple of weeks for me, with baseball and otherwise. I’m just now getting this post up for last weekend’s trip to the O.co Coliseum to see the Orioles and A’s.

WEEKEND ROADIE: TIGERS AT A’S

Headed up to Oakland this past weekend to see the red-hot A’s take on the Tigers, with Oakland going for their 10th win in a row. It didn’t happen. Justin Verlander happened. Brett Anderson serving up moonshots happened. At the end of the day, I travelled back home with a little bit of sunburn as the […]

THE A’S ARE STILL SWINGIN’

THE A’S ARE STILL SWINGIN’

After 94 wins and an AL west division crown, the Oakland Athletics apparently couldn’t stand the prosperity. So they went to Detroit and put themselves in a two-game hole in their best-of-five playoff series. Back at home Tuesday night in front of their O.co Coliseum fans, the A’s staved off elimination with a clean 2-0 […]

AT THE BALLPARK: A’S – RED SOX

Just got back from the O.co Coliseum and have this to report, as if you hadn’t heard: The Oakland A’s are on fire. A 7-1 victory that never seemed out of reach after Coco Crisp led off the bottom of the first with a homerun put the A’s in the wildcard driver’s seat and pulled […]
