Found July 22, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
OAKLAND, Calif. -- When rookie starting pitcher Jarrod Parker walked off the mound after eight innings of one-run ball against the New York Yankees in line for no decision, Oakland A's third baseman Brandon Inge had a message for him. "Inge, he told me," Parker explained. "He said, 'I'm gonna get you one.' And he did. That's pretty sweet that he went up there and did it." It wasn't another walk-off, but Inge delivered on his claim with a solo home run on the first pitch of the bottom of the eighth inning. It powered the A's to their third consecutive one-run victory over the Yankees -- a 2-1 triumph Saturday -- and pushed Oakland's MLB-best July record to 13-2. When Inge made contact, Yankees starting pitcher Phil Hughes pointed to the sky, indicating he thought it was a harmless pop-up. "I thought he just hit it really good and really high, to be honest," Hughes said. "Looking back at the replay, it's pr...

Yankeetorial: We must not do something stupid due to the terrible events out West

Not long ago, CC was returning, Brett Gardner was healing, Joba was throwing well, Arod was heating up, and our only problem was securing tickets for the upcoming midnight premier of "The Dark Knight Rises." We were fat, dumb and winning. The last thing anyone pondered was having to suddenly drain our farm system for a Shane Victorino or a Justin Upton, some outfielding...

Report: Yankees Inquire About Justin Upton, 'in on Everybody' Leading Up to Trade Deadline

The Yankees aren't messing around. With Brett Gardner likely out for the remainder of the season, the Bronx Bombers appear to be in search of an outfielder, and they're "in on everybody" in advance of the July 31 trade deadline, according to SI.com. The Yankees have reportedly checked in on Justin Upton, Shane Victorino, Denard Span and presumably others. Upton...

Kernan Makes The Case For Victorino

From Kevin Kernan:The easy route would be to do nothing and hope the old guys, Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones, continue to produce loud hits for the Yankees. The Yankees, though, need to make a deal for an outfielder. Send a limo down the New Jersey Turnpike to pick up speedy Shane Victorino from the Phillies. Victorino would put the Yankees that much closer to victory. The Athletics...

Yankeetorial: Oakland has undressed the fundamental fact that we are back to waiting for Arod

Dim the mood lights. Cue the Moby soundtrack. Push the potato snug into the tailpipe, and let's get comfy. Nobody wants to hear us whinnying when nine eight seven games up. But today, all that stands between hope and a humiliating four-game sweep is Hiroki Kuroda, and we've rolled enough of his dice to not plan the victory party in advance. (Which is bad juju, BTW...

Photos: Colorado Rockies honor theater shooting victims

These images show how the Colorado Rockies honored the victims of the horrific shooting in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater that left 12 dead and injured 58 others. There was a moment of silence before game against the Padres at Petco Park in San Diego. Rockies players wore the date “7-20” under their eyes and wore purple jerseys and black wristbands.

Warren Bouncing Back

All baseball players wish they could make an immediate impact when joining the big league club for the first time. For some the game does pan out that way. For Adam Warren, his start was quite the opposite. Yet the 24-year-old’s mood was not dampened.

A's win in 12 to complete four-game sweep of Yankees

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics have won so many games in walk-off fashion they almost expect it of themselves when a game is tied in the late innings. And once again the Athletics saved their best for last on Sunday after falling behind 4-0 early in the game. The hero of the game was Coco Crisp, whose game-winning single in the bottom of the 12th lifted Oakland to a...

I'm not worried that we've lost two in a row

Why would anyone worry about such a thing? You'd be a fool to worry. The Yankees are too far ahead to blow the lead. And we have too many great players. There's no need to worry. None at all. And I'm not worried. Not one bit. I'm not even thinking about the fact that I'm not worried. It's not worth wasting time thinking about. So I'm not. Worried, that...

Podcast Episode 15: No A's For Effort

In the hopes of being able to talk about something positive, I waited until the end of yesterday's series finale in Oakland to complete this episode of the podcast. Of course, that positive news never came. The show is hopeful to some extent, as I interviewed my guest, Mike Pinto of "Mike's Entertainment and Sports Show," before the game began. Topics include Brett...
