Complete Inning By Inning Breakdown of Royals Wildcard Win

    My wife was mourning NO HUD?  That cracks me up. Top of First:Shields had some trouble finding the strike zone against Crisp who hit the sixth pitch to left for a single. Fuld got under a pitch and flied to Gordon.  The third pitch in his sequence looked like a missed call by the ump.  Against Donaldson it seemed that the A’s know which pitch is the change.  But then...

  With his team mired in a tough stretch, Oakland manager Bob Melvin was worried about missed opportunities — especially when a pitch in the dirt with the bases loaded in the 10th inning didn't scoot far enough to get a runner home.

In August, the Oakland Athletics have seen their once-potent offense fall of a cliff. The team has hit just 22 home runs this month to go along with a line of .224/.304/.351. The trade of Yoenis Cespedes has had much to do with those struggles, but nearly every other regular has struggled as well, most notably Jonny Gomes, Brandon Moss, Jed Lowrie, Derek Norris, Alberto Callaspo...

Also, Oakland’s shortstop Jed Lowrie kind of sucks and 2014 Jeter wouldn’t provide much of a drop-off. This deal needs to happen...
