2013 Oakland A's thread

Man this team sucks with RISP. Probably going to lose today, once again losing a series to the freaking Mariners. A terrible homestand against mediocre-at-best teams, and now a murderous stretch of 13 games, including 7 on the road vs Orioles and Tigers..if they're within 5 games of 1st after this stretch they'll have to consider themselves lucky.
Sh** is gettin REAL out here, son. Somebody...anybody...please get hot
We are 6-10 vs Seattle. Guess who we play during the last series of the regular season? Yup.
Jane Lee@JaneMLB

Since the break, A's are batting .195 (50-for-257) with RISP. Only Twins have lower mark (.177) in AL.

Welp...here we go...

Jane Lee@JaneMLB

A's are 15-16 since the break, and their next four series are against the Orioles, Tigers, Rays and Rangers.
She also said that Melvin ended the press conference on his own today. Visibly Livid. I'm pretty sure that he ripped into somebody in the clubhouse.
To make matters worse, Reddick has a right wrist sprain again. Getting MRI now. Dude...WTF...
I hate to say it because it'll sound like a rushed, panic move but F it...have Choice's uniform pressed out for his MLB debut on Friday night in Baltimore.

Like I said last week, the team is done. I don't think they'll reach 90 wins.

Didn't expect this team to perform like the 2011 Red Sox after the All-Star Break....

The China Doll outfield of Cespedes, Crisp, and Reddick, such delicate flowers...just waiting for one of them to break a rib sneezing. Oh well, it's a good thing they have Young and his .150 avg ready to step in on a moment's notice.

So frustrating. Those were our 3 sparkplugs to begin the year...NONE of them are batting over .250???

hate to say it but I dont think we're making the playoffs unless Texas struggles also and we just beat them.
now we play the orioles and tigers away (7 games) and then the rays and texas. The next 2 weeks basically decide the rest of our season

my prediction is we miss out on the playoffs, this team is just awful right now.
We definitely suck right now no doubt but guys we have a month and a half left. Don't give up hope now!

I'm not giving up, Im just not getting my hopes up lol
We have to win our games against Texas to win the division, and there's still like 8 games left against them. Our next series against them is in 10 or 11 days, so hopefully we can get some momentum in the next couple of series. It'll be tough from here though, our schedule gets harder and harder while Texas' gets easier

I hope, but it's blind empty hope because this team hasn't given fans much reason to have any...I mean, it's been like a month since they've been able to string together a measley 3-gm win streak. Can't even remember the last time their 'Last 10' in the standings was 8-2 or even 7-3. They're coming off a homestand that they were supposed to make hay, should have gone 6-3 at worst.

Now they have to start a make-or-break 13-game stretch on the road @ BAL and DET (7 games). It'll be a miracle if they go 6-7...I think they'll go 4-9 and unless the Rangers sputter then winning the division will be a pipe dream.

Then that leaves the idiotic 2-team wildcard the A's have to chase along with 5-6 other teams.

So there you go, my Mr. Happy Sunshine A's Report for today.
