OAKLAND, Calif. -- Rookie Tommy Milone pitched eight innings, allowed two hits and a run, struck out five and walked only one batter as the Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins, 5-1, on Wednesday afternoon. Milone (10-9) became the second pitcher on the staff to notch double-digit victories (Bartolo Colon, 10), and the win ended a personal three game losing streak. Coco Crisp was 3-for-3 with three runs scored, two RBIs, was on base four times and was a triple shy of the cycle. The A's have won six of their last seven games to keep pace in the American League Wild Card race. The struggling Twins have lost 11 of their last 13 games to maintain the worst record in the American League. Liam Hendriks pitched five innings, gave up six hits and four runs for Minnesota. Hendriks (0-6) has yet to post his first career Major League victory. The A's scored four runs in the first four innings. In the bottom of the first, Crisp led off with a walk and advanced to second on...

The Indians have old and new history with Bartolo Colon. The one-time Tribe ace most recently beat the Tribe at the age of 39 as a member of the Athletics on August 18th. No fake websites for Colon. He’s taken full responsibility for the incident.

Let’s just go ahead and get this out of the way now: there’s no such thing as a good time to lose a starting pitcher like Bartolo Colon. Over 24 starts with the A’s, Colon posted a 3.43 ERA and peripherals that make him look only a little less good, and Colon has been a big part of Oakland’s attempted playoff push. Now he’s done, having been found out for cheating, and...

Victor Conte not withstanding, the two recent positive tests and subsequent 50 game suspensions of Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon show that the MLB drug testing policy is, more or less, working. Though improvements must continue to be made to make the tests unbeatable, it is clear that the testing net as currently constructed is able to catch at least some offenders.
Gross. This video makes me physically ill, but I still can’t turn away from this quivering blob of lard trying – and failing – to shag fly balls in the outfield before an A’s game just prior to being suspended 50 games for jamming syringes into his undoubtedly rash-covered backside.
And why is he wearing a hoodie before a day game in Oakland? His teammates are all wearing...
