what a gem by Jesse today, the fan base is really high on him huh?
Jim Johnson's control issues continue to plague him. WTF is going on with him?

Too bad he's not going to get the W after Johnson blows the save and loses yet another one.

Single, Walk, Pop-Up Bunt Out, Walk. Single and Walks all on 3-2 counts.
Jesus Christ Jim Johnson is wet hot garbage.
*sigh*

Johnson given the hook. Bases loaded, 1-out, 4-3 score.
And then he's got a Punch & Judy #9 hitting shortstop 0-2 and can't get him out. I was never crazy about Grant Balfour but the A's just might have an unmitigated disaster on their hands with Johnson.
I'd consider cutting Johnson outright. Just say "failure of a pickup" and leave it at that.

Of all things - Suzuki beating a throw from Reddick.
skipper is gonna have to address this issue after the game, it's pretty OBVIOUS that Johnson isn't cutting it right now
I never want to see him Johnson pitch another inning again. We are deep enough without him.
Feel bad for Chavez...pitched his a** off, A's offense deserted him after 1st inning, and then Gas Can Johnson costs Chavez not only the W, but might end up costing the A's a victory.
And yay, now the A's lose Moss' bat and get to have BARTON hitting cleanup.
Donaldson needs to crank his first HR here, please.

EDIT: And just foul right when I posted that.

Donaldson wants to go no gloves
