Oakland Athletics Let Sonny Gray’s Gem Go to Waste

The Oakland Athletics couldn’t buy a hit when it mattered most, as the club squandered a gem from Sonny Gray in a 2-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox. “I don’t know how you pitch any better,” said manager Bob Melvin after Gray ripped off nine punchouts on a bright Wednesday afternoon at the O.Co Coliseum in Oakland. “We just didn’t give him enough support.” The right-hander...

Sonny Gray Has Evolved

I attended the Oakland A’s game last night, something I do a few dozen times a year, and Sonny Gray happened to be on the mound plying his trade against a talented Anaheim squad. Though he was shaky in the first inning (his career ERA in the first inning is 4.50, so there could be something […]

Oakland A’s pitching updates

The Oakland A’s have been on a roller coaster of a ride this early in the season. One game they have a no hitter going, another game they outscore their opponent by double digits runs; then there are those games (far too many for fans to be fond of) that nothing goes their way. Between starting pitchers giving up a handful of runs early in the game, to routine fielding errors,...

Let’s be real and admit that this season could be a rough one for the Oakland A’s. Considering their virtually new lineup and their younger than average players, 2015 could be a shaky, trial and error type of year.

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...
