The Oakland A’s Will Laugh Off Doubters in 2015

The Oakland A’s are often doubted by anyone who isn’t a loyal fan of the team. Most years, this doubt is proven to be foolish. Sonny Gray will be a big part of that Oakland mojo. (Mandatory Credit: Christian Petersen/Getty Images) The Oakland A’s are doubted nearly every year. From criticism of Billy Beane to jokes about the modest Coliseum, it seems that non-fans of...

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...

Oakland A’s 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

The Oakland A’s had some high highs and some even lower lows last season. Even though they led the American League West for the first half of the season, they famously imploded in August. They were able to claw their way into the postseason AL Wild Card game, but ultimately lost the game to the Kansas City Royals. Last season was suppose to be the year the Athletics made it to...

A's name fresh-faced 'veteran' Sonny Gray Opening Day starter

Oakland A's manager Bob Melvin named his 2015 Opening Day starter on Monday morning, and it's the same man who held that title in 2014: right-hander Sonny Gray. The 25-year-old will make his second Opening Day start as a member of the A's, a designation that really says something when you consider the non-stop roster churning that GM Billy Beane put the A's through over the past...

MESA, Ariz. (AP) Sonny Gray has been picked to start the Oakland Athletics' opener for the second straight season. Manager Bob Melvin made the announcement Monday, saying Gray will face Texas on April 6.

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...

Sonny Gray’s Inevitable Rise to Stardom

Sonny Gray, right-handed hurler for the Oakland A’s, will continue his rise to stardom in 2015 and beyond. (Mandatory Credit: Rick Yeatts/Getty Images) Sonny Gray doesn’t physically resemble an ace. Upon closer examination, the Oakland A’s starting pitcher doesn’t even have the build of a typical mound presence. Listed at 5-10, 180 pounds, and probably only weighing that...

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...
