Oakland A’s pitcher Sonny Gray does Opening Day the right way

Monday night was quite the night for sports fans, it was the official opening day for MLB baseball. However, the real deal and word on the street is about those boys in Oakland, the Athletics. With such hype during the season break continuing all throughout spring training, the A’s were most definitely a team to watch for- would it be a train wreck waiting to happen or a Billy...

A’s, Sonny Gray get 6 Outs Away From Opening Day History

Sonny Gray. Photo Credit: USA TODAY Sports.   In baseball history there has been one, yes just one, no-hitter thrown on Opening Day. On April 16, 1940 Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians threw the first no-no of his career defeating the Chicago White Sox by a score of 1-0. He is the only player to ever pitch a no-hitter on Opening Day, in the game’s long and rich history you’d...

Oakland A’s opening day observations

Sonny days are here in Oakland as Sonny Gray delivered an impressive Opening Day performance for the A’s. Here are my Opening Day observations: Sonny Gray had a no-hitter going into the top of the eighth inning. On an 0-2 count, Texas Rangers left fielder Ryan Rua roped a single to right field to end the no-no. Gray finished the night having allowed no runs, one hit, one walk...

Five Bold Predictions for the Oakland A’s 2015 Season

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. However, the A’s have been notorious for taking on the underdog role and surprising not only themselves but fans all around the league with their cunning team chemistry...

Oakland A’s battle of the five man rotation

With opening day fast approaching, major league teams have begun to declare who will be their opening day starting pitcher. While this is a huge compliment to the individual pitcher, it does not give fans much information about what the starting rotation or overall bullpen will look like. Looking specifically at the Oakland A’s, for the second consecutive year, right hander Sonny...

Player Profile #98: Sonny Gray | SP | OAK

Heading into last season I was very high on Sonny Gray. He made his debut in mid-2013 right before the All-Star break and pitched to some impressive ratios across 64 solid innings. Following up his notable rookie campaign, he was able to put up very similar numbers over a full season’s worth of innings and ended up as the 27th-best SP on ESPN’s Player Rater. If you look at...

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...
