A's earn much-needed win over Mets

The A's really needed that. There isn't much to say, really. The simple act of getting back in the win column is far more valuable than a single game in the standings — there's just an air of success that penetrated the Coliseum tonight that had been lacking throughout the fanbase, the media, the team's comments to the media, and did I say the fanbase? Coco Crisp...

Living The Life Of Dreams

This was an actual dream I had this morning: Matt Harvey is in the clubhouse before the game tonight, and he gives the most inspirational speech of the season … something like “Are you going to let management bully you and make you do things you don’t want to do? Well I’m not! And I’m going out there and lead you guys to victory tonight!!!” Raucous cheers, the team hits...

Crisp's 3-run triple helps A's halt slide

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Coco Crisp hit a tiebreaking three-run triple in the fourth inning to help Scott Kazmir earn his career-best 14th win, and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Mets 6-2 on Tuesday night to snap a five-game losing streak. Coming off a miserable road trip when he went 2-for-23, Crisp grounded out and singled before lining an 0-1 pitch from Mets starter Dillon...

A’s Tickets 15% Below Average For Series Vs Mets

For pretty much the entire season the Oakland Athletics have had the best record in baseball. For most of the season it hasn’t even been really close, and their run differential is still the only one in the league above +100, currently at +161. But a five-game losing streak has dropped them to only the second best record in the league. Unfortunately, now the team with the best...

Mets On Verge Of Setting Historic Streak Of Offensive Futility

All the leaves are brown… and the skies are gray… If the Mets thought they had it rough against the woeful Chicago Cubs, they’re in for some real trouble this week as they head to the West Coast for some California reaming. The Mets begin a five-game west coast swing with a pair of games starting tonight against the Oakland A’s before kicking off a weekend series with the...

Mets-Athletics Preview

After the Oakland Athletics bolstered their rotation with two high-profile trades prior to the non-waiver deadline, many figured they would cruise to the AL West crown. Despite a season-worst losing streak that caused them to fall out of first place for the first time since April, the A's are confident they can regroup.

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Aug 19

After a very limited Monday, there are plenty of opportunities to spot start on Tuesday. Let’s look at the rankings: Scott Kazmir takes the top spot for two reasons: He’ll face the Mets, who are 29th in wOBA over the last two weeks (.268) and he’ll face Dillon Gee, who Steamer doesn’t like. That 50/20 W%/L% split seems a bit drastic to me, but I think Kazmir probably has...

Vargas still trying to find edge after surgery

Having cooled off the Kansas City Royals for the moment, the Oakland Athletics now hope Scott Kazmir can get back on track. Plagued by one poor inning in each of his last two outings, the All-Star left-hander tries to avoid losing a fourth straight start to the Royals on Wednesday night.

Remaining Schedule Favorable for the Tribe

If you’re still riding the roller coaster ride that has been the Cleveland Indians season, congratulations on wearing your Cleveland sports pride and pain on your sleeve. After 117 games, the Indians have been a largely underwhelming team. A frantic finish to the 2013 season led the club back to the postseason for the first time since 2007, but offseason rotation and lineup concerns...

Kazmir Improves to 13-4, A’s Hold Off Twins 6-5

What looked like a sure win through six innings, got a bit dicey by the end, but when all was said and done the A’s had held off a Minnesota Twins’ comeback, holding onto a 6-5 win to take the first two games of the weekend series. Scott Kazmir set down the first 12 batters he faced before losing his bid for a perfect game, but maintained his shutout through six innings with...

MLB Game Picks - Monday: October 4, 2014

Mediocrity continues with another 8-7 day. The Astros surprised me all weekend. Scott Kazmir lost. The most laughable incorrect pick was the White Sox. What the heck was that!? They did not have a relief pitcher that could get anyone out no matter who they put out there. After Jose Quintana threw too many pitches through five, but had a 3-1 lead when he left, the White Sox bullpen...

A's, Scott Kazmir dominate Giants

If the last four days were any indication, a rematch of the 1989 World Series would be as big a wipeout as the original. Of course, the A's of 25 years ago swept the Giants in four fairly lopsided games. This year's model managed to take only three of four in the annual home-and-home, but the lasting imprint was that of Oakland domination after a 6-1 victory behind Scott...

Oakland Athletics fueled by baseball’s best starting rotation

Already armed with one of the American League’s best starting rotations, the Oakland Athletics dramatically improved their chances for a deep run in the playoffs on Saturday when they shipped a trio of promising young prospects to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for starting pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel. In a single transaction, Oakland took arguably the top two starting...

Scott Kazmir was once again brilliant Saturday night, recovering from a rocky first inning to mow down Toronto hitters en route to his fifth consecutive victory at O.co Coliseum.
