A’s find out just how easy it is to shut out Giants these days

It’s not like we really needed any further proof, but it wasn’t hard to tell on Monday night which Bay Area team is the best in baseball and which is in

The future is now: Beane deals top prospects for Samardzija and Hammel

The rich get richer. That’s a typical reaction when the best team in baseball acquires two of the top pitchers in the National League, one of which was a top commodity on

A’s lose 5-4 on Rajai Davis’ walk-off grand slam off Sean Doolittle

To say Sean Doolittle was on fire coming into this game would be a massive understatement, even after giving up an earned run yesterday (breaking a streak of 24 straight scoreless outings)

Kazmir struggles against former team while Colon dominates

The A’s came into New York on a hot streak, winners of five of their last six, so the last thing they expected was to be on the wrong end

Athletics HBP their way to victory over Red Sox

The A’s acquired Brad Mills, tonight’s starting pitcher, for a dollar in a trade with the Brewers, so of course they beat the Red Sox in Mills’ first major league

That’s so Oakland: A’s double up Red Sox, improve on MLB’s best record

The Oakland A’s won their league-leading 45th game on Thursday night against the Red Sox, and they did it in typical A’s fashion. You know … Scott Kazmir, who two

A’s make it interesting, but lose slugfest to Rangers

At some point, I guess the A’s were due to be on the wrong end of a blowout. You don’t just lose two-fifths of your starting rotation (Jarrod Parker and

Coliseum light failure doesn’t stop A’s small ball attack

Lights out at the Oakland Coliseum. Where the #Athletics don’t need a new stadium. (CC: Bud Selig) — Casey Pratt (@CaseyPrattCSN) June 15, 2014 The A’s are probably used

A’s don’t deliver on fireworks night

It was fireworks night, the Coliseum was sold out, and Derek Jeter and the Yankees were in town. It was a picture-perfect scenario for the A’s. Well, except that they

Bandwagoners? Study shows Oakland A’s fans have third-highest “win sensitivity”

Emory Sports Marketing Analytics released a study this week that ranked Major League Baseball fan bases in a variety of ways, including “win sensitivity.” Instead of focusing on how the folks

Cespedes wows again, A’s rout Angels

Yoenis Cespedes made the throw of the year last night, and apparently he isn’t quite done imposing his will on the Angels. An amazing throw nabbing Albert Pujols as Pujols

Yoenis Cespedes makes the throw of the year

A cynic might look at the final score (Angels 2, Athletics 1) and the number of innings it took to get to that final score (14) and complain. We had to wait

KNBR dominates May ratings, 95.7 says “thanks, but no thanks” to World Cup

The Nielsen numbers were released yesterday, and not a huge shock — the Giants are pulling in massive ratings for KNBR 680 (which finished No. 1 overall in San Francisco in

A’s looked fatigued, sloppy in loss to Angels

When the A’s faced Garrett Richards two weeks ago, he didn’t even make it through an inning before the A’s knocked him around for five runs. This time out, the

A’s fans have a right to boo Jim Johnson

Let me just preface this by saying that booing a pitcher for not doing his job doesn’t help him one bit. It decreases his morale, shrinks his self-confidence and frustrates

Donaldson a hero as A’s come alive in ninth to beat Tigers

The A’s haven’t been celebrating as many walk-off wins this season as they did a couple years ago, but once in a while, the magic comes back in the Coliseum

Probably just a coincidence: @957thegame tweeted far more about the A’s last night than the Giants

I’ll willingly admit this whole thing is completely ridiculous. But before we get back to the truly newsworthy items like scooters and mustaches, I’d like to share my findings after poring over

Pitcher’s duel turns into slugfest, A’s fall to Tigers 6-5

Damon Bruce rants against BASG, the internet and A’s fans (but mostly A’s fans)

I guess I kind of knew this was coming, since you can’t question Damon Bruce on Twitter without him getting offended and lashing out. That’s why it’s funny that one of

95.7 “The Game” gets defensive when their social media policy is questioned

The Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants played home games at the same time yesterday. The A’s hosted the Detroit Tigers, while the Giants faced the Chicago Cubs. Sellout crowds on both sides
