Mariners almost lose to A's, don't

Dorothy, we're not in 2015 anymore. In another year, this might have been a loss. With the Mariners up 4-3 and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, a wild pitch from Steve Cishek sent Stephen Vogt to first. Tyler Ladendorf came in to pinch run and stole second. Chris Coghlan walked. With Jed Lowrie up to bat, the stage seemed set for a same-old-Mariners late-inning collapse. But...

You may have noticed that a few Oakland Athletics hitters are not doing so well at the plate. But fear not! A bad April is not a portender of a bad rest of the season. In fact, you'd do a lot better to stick with a player's preseason PECOTA projection as your projection for the rest of the season. Here is every A's player with an OPS below .550 so far in order of how far that OPS...

If you look at the positional adjustments for Wins Above Replacement on our website, it looks like left and right field are equally valuable, and the second-easiest positions to play on the field. Generally, that seems about right — first base is where you put your slugger, and the corner-outfield spots is where you put your other sluggers. And yet, if you look for bats that qualified...

Well, how about that on a Friday night? The A's take the first game of the series from the Mariners by the score of 3-2, as Coghlan's two RBI, including a game-winning home run, and Josh Reddick's solo home run made up the offense, while Surkamp's start, backed by Rodriguez, Axford, Doolittle and Madson from the pen took care of the Mariners.
