I Admire-Hate You: Sox-A’s Gamer II

The A’s are pretty much the model of “grab other team’s castoffs and make them awesome, find the market inefficiencies, and stay competitive year after”.  Of course, that’s led to exactly one postseason series victory (and they were swept in the ALCS immediately thereafter), but I dunno, I think they really may have the pieces to go far this year.  Certainly a team like the Red Sox is unlikely to shift them from their present course of destroying the AL.

Rubby De La Rosa takes on Jesse Chavez.  Here’s hoping for one of De La Rosa’s scoreless outings because that’s pretty much what it takes for the Red Sox to win a game these days (and even then, no guarantees).

  • Early xmas gift by “blue” leads to a 1-1 tie at the bottom of the 8th.

  • An event-free top of the 9th sets up an Oakland walk-off. Hold tight, bullpen (e.g. the only consistently good part of our team, although that’s actually pretty unfair to the starters, who have been amazingly consistent recently…our offense is just fucking awful).

  • Coco the go-ahead RBI both games, this time an extra-inning walkoff single off Uehara (run goes to the guy before Koji, though, Mujica).
