Oh, So Close – The Seattle Mariners Miss the Playoffs

The long arduous baseball season came to an end Sunday afternoon for the Seattle Mariners when they would receive no more help from the lowly Texas Rangers. Behind stellar pitching from Sonny Gray, the Oakland Athletics pulled the rip cord on their free fall in the standings and ensured at least one more game against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday night, while Felix Hernandez’s...

Oakland A’s: World Series or bust

The Oakland A’s dusted themselves off and have won the second American League Wild Card. The Oakland A’s are back in the postseason, thanks in large part to the complete game shutout Sonny Gray tossed against the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Oh, it wasn’t pretty. Going 12-17 in August was probably not what they imagined after acquiring Jon Lester from the Boston Red Sox at the...

The A’s finally clinched a playoff spot

It took all 162 games, and the end result was disappointing given their strong first half of the season, but the Oakland Athletics clinched the final American League playoff spot following a 4-0 win over the Rangers in Texas. Sonny Gray was marvelous in the clincher for Oakland, tossing a complete game shutout while walking none and striking out five. The A’s will head to Kansas...

Swept by Rangers, Athletics fall out of top AL wild-card spot

  Sonny Gray and the Oakland Athletics kept sliding, falling out of the top American League wild-card spot with a 7-2 loss to Texas on Thursday that gave the Rangers a three-game sweep. The latest loss to the team with the worst record in the majors dropped the A's a half-game behind idle Kansas City for the first wild-spot slot. Oakland owned the best record in the big leagues...

Gray’s Early Struggles, Slumping Offense Sink Oakland Athletics

Sonny Gray dug a four-run hole in the first inning and the sliding Oakland Athletics never rebounded, as the club got swept away by the Texas Rangers 7-2 on Thursday afternoon at the Coliseum. The right-hander was tagged for eight hits in five frames, dropping to 13-9 on the season with a 3.28 ERA. Gray last won on August 22 and the A’s record now stands at 83-69, leaving...

What is wrong with Sonny Gray?

We could go on for days in order to determine just what is wrong with the Oakland Athletics (hint: it has nothing to do with Yoenis Cespedes). They’re freefalling through the ranks of the American League and now will be lucky to grab a wild card, with a division title that looked like a lock just a couple of months ago now almost completely out of the question. In the midst of...

Oakland A’s: Is Sonny Gray running out of gas?

Sonny Gray has been a major part of the Oakland A’s starting rotation this season but is the 24-year-old right hander simply a victim of a lack of run support or is he running out of gas? Aside from the recently acquired Jon Lester, the Oakland A’s pitching staff has not lived up to the expectations and Gray has been a big part of that let down. Sonny Gray has pitched fewer...

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...
