The Swingin' A's, they made Santiago look like a Cy Young candidate, lowered his ERA from like 8.00 to under 5.00...and then Jaso pinch hits and blasts a 2-run dong.
Chavez with another gem....85 WHIP and a 1.35 ERA, he should be 3-0 but because the A's can't give him runs he's got 3 N/D's. And I guess the ironic part is Jim Johnson gets the win.
And not that there's many people who would doubt the strength of Cespedes, but if there are any, they need to look at that swing he took on his deep flyout in the 9th...the dude had one hand off the bat to call time, ump didn't grant it, so the pitch is already on the way to the plate at 95+, and he STILL gets his hand back on the bat and damn near hit it out. That was impressive.
And this just in: Daric Barton SUCKS. He's hitting .080...that is Point. ZERO. Eight. Zero. And he made another error. Brandon Moss should be the EVERYDAY 1B and that's all there is to it. Beane is a witch who works wonders, but he's just dead wrong on Barton, and it's a shame that Fuld was let go when it should have been Barton, or even Reddick who has options, send him down to Sacto to find his stroke.
