    Thought Lazardo was going to give it away there at the end. Melvin loves putting young guys in for pressure situations.

    Still about 10,000 seats left for the WCG. Over 45,000 seats sold already.

    Wednesday is tough for anyone having to travel to the game. I toyed with the idea but we'd basically have to take the day off to make it work. Especially with a 6pm start time. Hopefully they win and we can make a couple postseason games though.

    Yeah. That's definitely the issue for me too.

    The only playoff game have been able to go to was Game 1 of 2006 against the Tigers. That was Zito's last game as an Athletic (until his return in 2015).

    Nice. I've actually only really been following again for about a year. I liked baseball as a kid but just lost interest until we randomly went to a game last year and my wife of all people loved it. I think it's a good sport for young kids and then again once you hit middle age. Besides, I have to hold onto something on that side of the bridge living around here.

    Yeah. Good to get 2 shut down innings from Petit. And that first run from Semien was a big one to get a little energy back in this crowd. But this crowd is going to be silent if the A's cant get some more offense going.

    REALLY shitty timing for Manaea to get taken deep 3 times.

    Oh. Manaea has never given up 3 HRs in a game with the A's.
