The A’s have been in Chicago this past week, firstly taking on the Cubs and then the White Sox. We look back at the games so far and preview Sunday’s finale.
The A’s finish up their Inter-league NL Central action with a three-game series in Wrigley Field, before moving to the South side of Chicago to take on more familiar foes in the White Sox. Just as importantly for us, three of the six games are a convenient time to watch in the UK.Continue reading “A’s Week Ahead 5 August 2019”
This week’s Sunday review on our YouTube channel looks back at the Trade deadline moves and previews the Sunday game against the St Louis Cardinals.
The last two times I’ve made a video it’s been put out of date within a few hours by breaking news; firstly with the A’s signing Jake Diekman and then yesterday when I spoke about Marcus Stroman on the Periscope livestream.

In last week’s Sunday review video I took a look at the A’s off-season dealings, not only the players we brought in but those we allowed to leave as free agents.
The news yesterday that the LA Angels had designated Matt Harvey for assignment gave me another reason to consider the great job the A’s Front Office have done once again in spite of the greater spending power our rivals have over us.Continue reading “It’s not always what you spend, but how you spend it”
This week the A’s take on the Mariners (again) before heading to Minnesota for a tough four-game series against the Twins.Continue reading “A’s Week Ahead 15 July 2019”
