2013 Oakland A's thread

lol at those announcers in the 9th. So melodramatic. Was a 3 run lead, guys. Balfour was never remotely in trouble.

Seriously.

"You need a good babysitter at catcher out there in the 9th"

"He really is a high wire act"

He gave up one walk, no hits and no runs. They acted like the bases were loaded and he was in the midst of having an emotional meltdown. VMart is the one who needed a babysitter.
Finish it in 4...do not want to see Scherzer or Verlander in a Game 5, even if at O.co.
So is it Straily getting the start in Game 4? Back before the series started I had heard it would be Griffin, but then just read it will be Straily. They both had strong Septembers, although think Straily was a little more impressive, lower ERA for the month and didn't give up as many HRs as Griffin.

Just win, baby.

It's been reported that Griffin has elbow tendinitis so he was left off the ALDS roster. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be a slug-fest. Hopefully we can come out on top because I don't want to have to face Scherzer or Verlander in game 5.

BALFOUR RAGE

Was I the only one who feared for Martinez's well-being, charging the mound like that, getting in the face of an Aussie with a sour demeanor. Balfour seems like the type of guy who routinely goes places, hoping to get involved in a good tussle.

This. They to need unload on Fister, put some runs up on the board, shut down their offense yet again and say adios to that eyesore of a city.

I dont think Balfour is playing with a full deck. He is a crazy dude.

I think the series will go 5 games and you will see a rematch of Game 1. I like Fister at home a little more than Straily on the road.

Wow, thanks because I completely missed that bit of news. Need Coco to yard top 1st, get that early lead.

LOL I don't think he's that crazy when he's not getting ready to come in. Or maybe he is crazy. Idk, just as long as he doesn't blow the game I don't really care. It seems to work for him.

Haha he just pitches like a maniac, he's a bad ass

Hopefully we see the good Straily tomorrow, although I honestly don't trust him on the road against Detroit. We rocked Fister last time we played him, hopefully we do again

Please win tomorrow..

That it does. He has been an excellent closer for the A's.

lol espn just discovered balfour rage
So... Do we win today? I hope so. We need to jump all over fister early if we want to shut this down.

Can we just start Sonny every game? Lol
