It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Can somebody get Josh Donaldson a new pair of pants please? Donaldson, the A’s starting third baseman, was the victim of a diving Rick Porcello breaking ball Sunday.
Porcello entered Sunday’s game as a relief pitcher since his next start will be skipped with a Tigers’ off day. He threw two perfect innings.

A young Oakland A's fan who was handed a foul ball during Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers shocked nearby fans, including his family, when he immediately throws it back onto the field.
It happened in the top of the eighth inning when Tigers batter Victor Martinez hit a foul ball into the stands behind home plate. A nearby...
Things to notice/know:
1) The crowd is cheering in anticipation of Josh Reddick pieing Josh Donaldson.
2) Thus, Donaldson is bracing for impact in anticipation of it, but does so over the wrong shoulder.
3) Most importantly, in a subtle move, Reddick wipes the hand he touches Donaldson with against that disgusting beard/mouth/face of his.
4) Donaldson then thinks the worst is over...
Aside from the Oakland A’s pitching Sunday and Josh Donaldson wetting himself the funniest thing that happened during Sunday’s game with the Tigers was in the stands. When a foul ball was hit into the stands, a fan caught it and promptly handed it to a dad who was attending the game with his family [...]
The A’s lineup took two big hits Friday night against the Tigers.
First, Coco Crisp went out with a groin strain, then Yoenis Cespedes exited with a left hand injury. He underwent X-rays, which turned out negative.
Crisp is considered day-to-day and not expected to see the DL. But the Cespedes injury will be more costly. The club placed the slugger on the 15-day DL on Saturday...
The young and highly performing core of this roster is headed for big paydays very soon. The Tigers are going to have to make some tough decisions in the not so distant future. News flash to Tigers fans, they aren’t going to be able to keep everyone unless this payroll is going to jump by fifty to seventy million dollars, which isn’t going to happen.
Key Players that Could Soon...
Oakland Athletics left fielder Yoenis Cespedes was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained muscle in his left hand after he landed awkwardly in a tumbling slide Friday night.
Cespedes had an MRI on Saturday morning before the middle game of a weekend series against Detroit. It showed no structural damage, and manager Bob Melvin says no surgery will be needed...
Prince Fielder homered for the second straight game, Torii Hunter hit his first clout since joining Detroit to help back Justin Verlander and the Tigers snapped the Oakland Athletics' nine-game winning streak with a 7-3 victory Saturday.
Jhonny Peralta followed Fielder's leadoff shot in the fourth with a three-run homer, and the Tigers didn't let the A's back into...

Carlos Pena had two hits for the Astros, who have...
The Detroit Tigers ventured into o.co Coliseum (great name….**eye roll**) to take on the red hot Oakland A’s this weekend. The series was a rematch of last year’s hotly contested 5-game American League Divisional Series that wasn’t decided until Justin Verlander pitched a complete game in Game 5 to drag the Tigers to the ALCS against the New York Yankees. It was a series...
With a record of 9-2, The Oakland A’s are off to their best start since 1992 and have the best record in the American League. In an attempt to surpass Billy Martin’s 1981 Athletics’ eleven game win streak, the A’s must win their next three games, two of which are against the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers beat the A’s in
