Reading this just made me laugh. HHmmm, i wonder why Giles had a negative experience.....Is it because he almost cost his team a championship and I'm guessing that every Houston fan was screaming "nnnoooo!" when he entered the game during the post season last year.
Really disappointing loss to Seattle last night, but wow that game kept me on the edge of my seat. I really thought we might have pulled it out in a walk off in the 10th, but then that 11th inning... hoping we kick their butts tonight.
Rockies still surging! Gotta check how much Coors Field playoff tickets are going for...
Couldn't ask for a better closing weekend at Fenway after a great seasonhttps://twitter.com/RealKentMurphy/status/1046136839571165189
Just finished the Cubs-Brewers game plausibly live. What is up with Chicago? When the Brewers won, the crowd sounded like they were in Milwaukee.
Lol that hug!!!!!
Well that was a season that ended abruptly early. Ugh. That inability to score runs late in the season really killed the Cubs.
Did I really just read that there are rumors that Joe Maddon is going to get fired? This can't be a legit rumor can it?
bummer. super fun year so can't help but be optimistic for next year when we don't have +5 SP on the DL. fist bump to @MrX and go BoSox at this point vs those asshole. p.s. Aaron Boone's face still sucks.
So does this thread officially close now that the A's have been eliminated and their season done?
I found it interesting at all of these people that were picking the A's prior to the game. It's almost like they became the chic pick and that's why everyone started to pick them to win. But planning on bullpenning a game, I don't know. If anything, I think last night showed why if you can find a true ace, then you'd rather have that option than trying to piece a game together. Unless you're going to have 9 truly lights out relievers that only pitch 1 inning each. But if you're relying on Rodney as a key piece, I don't necessarily trust that.
Also last night just demonstrated how much more dominant Mariano Rivera really was for all of those years since he could go out and pitch multiple scoreless innings.
But regardless, winning 97 games when you expectations weren't that high is a huge accomplishment.
Boston vs. New York should be interesting. Would have to think Boston is going to win that series but you never know.
