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...

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...
