We’ve had Monday to put the Yankees series in the rear-view mirror. Let’s agree to say we lost the series 2-1, no shame in that, and move on.Continue reading “A’s Week Ahead 2 September 2019”
September already? Yes, I know the feeling. Just a month to go in the 2019 MLB regular season and the A’s are firmly in the play-off hunt.
This week’s review looks at the series against the Royals and Yankees, plus the call-ups of Seth Brown, Sheldon Neuse and Sean Murphy, as well as previewing Sean Manaea’s return to MLB action today.
It was a positive home-stand overall in Oakland, even though dropping the last two games to the Giants meant it ended on a sour note.
The A’s are 74–55 heading into this week, 9.5 games behind the Astros in the AL West, a half-game behind the Rays for the second Wild Card and a game behind Cleveland for the first Wild Card.
The A’s are off to Kansas City and New York this week.Continue reading “A’s Week Ahead 26 August 2019”
It’s been an important home-stand at the Coliseum for the A’s. Our latest review video looks back at what happened, prior to the Sunday game against the Giants.
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The last two times I’ve made a video it’s been put out of date within a few hours by breaking news; firstly with the A’s signing Jake Diekman and then yesterday when I spoke about Marcus Stroman on the Periscope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.
The latter involved me saying he was likely going to the Yankees, rather than the A’s, I should add. I got the city right, at least.
Let’s see if I can tempt fate for the third time then!Continue reading “A’s roster moves (as of 9.15pm UK time!)”
We’ve got the Trade Deadline coming up this week. Handy, really, as we have two off-days to contend with in a slightly strange week ahead.Continue reading “A’s Week Ahead 29 July 2019”
