Flying High Again

Last night the A's put a 5-spot bitch slap on the Yankees in the bottom of the 8th. Milton Bradley led off with a triple, Cano kicked one, the flood gates opened and the the Big Hurt hurt big with a bases clearing double. Huston Street, who had been warming up, sat back down. In all the games I have seen Bradley and Thomas in, I have never seen them smiling as much as they were last night. I don't know who the funny guy is over there, I guess it might be Swisher. Whatever it was they were having a lot of fun in that game. 2-1 and away we go.

That's More Like It!

The A's rebounded from a bad opening night to have a great 2nd game, beating the Yankees 4-3. Huston Street got the win. Scutaro (Mr Clutch) got the game winning hit in the bottom of the 9th! Is there a more valuable backup infielder than Scutaro?? Crosby goes down, and Scutaro goes in. Crosby is great, but Scutaro is a great fill-in too. It is hard to believe that was Scutaro's 6th walk off hit. I remember 2 of them last year.

Harden had a good start, making Matsui look lost on a strike three pitch. Matsui was fooled out of his pants. After that swing he was standing there in just a jock strap with his pants literally on the ground. Literally! How about Swisher hitting a bomb after he misplayed a ball in left? Chavvy hit a bomb. Milton Bradley (he got game) made an awesome play off the wall then throwing into 2nd to almost get Damon going for 2. It Boggles the mind.

The Train to October is back on track!

A Bump on the Road to 120 Wins

Well I went to last night's opening night. The crowd was buzzing, the skies had cleared, the field looked great, the Yankees were in town. It was electric. Then Zito couldn't get out of the 2nd inning. And I realized the A's haven't won anything yet in 2006, and all the hype in the world couldn't help me with the score which was 11-1 Yankees when we left. Of course many will exagerate the importance of one game, but it was the first game, and it was disspointing. Luckily the A's have 161 more to get back on track.
