Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Jul 19-21

As I mentioned in Friday’s rankings, for the second half I’ve elected to show the projected ROS ERA from Steamer (link below). This number is a key input for the rankings and often when there’s a ranking that looks suspect, it’s because Steamer is more or less bullish than the general public. On Saturday, Wade Miley is the day’s top pitcher facing Travis Wood and the Cubs...

Watch: A's Sonny Gray has some fun with New Yorkers

I wouldn't really call this a prank video, more like Sonny Gray of the Oakland A's just being a goofball with people while wandering the streets of New York City.Sonny plays the innocent country-boy role perfectly...probably because that is who he is. The 24-year-old star pitcher for the Athletics is from Nashville, Tennessee and probably hasn't had a full taste of "...

WATCH: A's pitcher Sonny Gray pranks unwitting New Yorkers

MLB Fan Cave can be an awesome thing, as Oakland Athletics pitcher Sonny Gray proves here. The young starting pitcher took to the streets of New York City to prank some innocent bystanders.  And the Results were pretty epic. Your browser does not support iframes. Is it weird that the funniest part of this video to me is when Gray goes up to a New Yorker, says “tag your it” and...

Gray goes seven strong, A's beat Giants 6-1

Sonny Gray did his part to finish off one stingy homestand for A’s pitchers. He stymied the Giants over seven innings on Tuesday to pace a 6-1 over the reeling Giants. That capped a 6-0 homestand, the 11th perfect homestand of six more games in Oakland history. It feels a little misleading to refer to Tuesday as the end of the homestand, given that the A’s simply cross the...

Oakland A’s: Analyzing the Jeff Samardzija trade

The Oakland A’s are considered by many to be favorites to contend for the World Series title in the American League but their acquisition of starting pitcher, Jeff Samardzija from Chicago may make the difference between another early exit in the playoffs and a deep run into October. Oakland’s pitching staff was already one of the league’s best despite lacking a bonafide ace...

DraftKings – A Touch of Gray

Ugh! Not another silly Grateful Dead reference and about their one commercial hit from 1987 at that. Seriously that song is the least Dead song in the history of Dead songs. It’s not my fault that Sonny Gray’s last name is Gray and not Sonny Darkstar or Sonny “Sugar” Magnolia. I wasn’t in charge of giving out sir names whenever that happened, so give me a break. Anythewho...

The Oakland A’s most promising draft picks of 2014

This year the Oakland A’s went very college heavy during the draft with 30 out of the 40 draftees being collegiate players. By selecting college players, it is more likely that they will actually sign with the team and will work their way up to the minor leagues fairly quickly. This happened with current starter Sonny Gray who was drafted in 2011 from Vanderbilt University and...

Oakland A’s: Grading the first third of the season

They have demonstrated their outstanding talent these past couple of months and ultimately proved already that they are the team to beat this year. Let’s grade the first third...
