Woulda probably still lost like 3-2 lol

Lol you are totally right.

Honestly I'm more pissed about game 4 than game 5. I knew we we're going to lose last night. Verlander is too good and we threw a guy with 10 career starts out there.

That choke job in game 4 will live in infamy. I'll never forget the bases loaded no outs inning... Ever.

People must not know this, but pitchers are only focusing on the catchers mitt. I remember once hearing Jason Schmidt say that he could never even tell you if there were 5,000 people in the stands, or 40,000. You pull your brim down low and focus on the zone.
wow that's great insight man thx
Good season. Tough to win it all. Props

Coulda said that last year
This season was disappointing

And game 4 lost us this series, they choked so bad. Everyone knew they weren't beating Verlander

Bartolo, Balfour, and Lowrie and free agents now

As well as Chris Young, Seth Smith. Moss is arb eligible

Bet next year our SS will be the worst player on our team

I'm pretty sure Lowrie isn't a free agent. I think he has one more year. Then in 2015 it's Russell time.
so are the A's moving?

You're right
I would still rather have Lowrie at 2b though. He was one of the worst fielding short stops this year

Russell finished the season at Sacramento. If he gets hot during spring training, it wouldn't be surprised if he's given a shot.
So the Braves are building a ballpark even though their stadium isn't even twenty years old...........
Rumors that Cardinals are interested in Jed Lowrie

They have a lot to trade

I hope the A's don't trade Lowrie. I feel like 2014 is the last year in our window to compete with this current core before we have to start trading off everybody and rebuild. Keep Lowrie, if he performs well make him a qualifying offer (which he will surely turn down if he has a good year) and take the Comp Picks.
