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

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

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

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

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

A’s waste opportunities in loss to Jays

One hit was all the A’s needed to trump the Rays 3-2 on Wednesday night for their fifth straight victory and 11th win in their last 12 games. That one hit

A’s prevail in squirrelly game over Indians

Oakland A’s bullpen nearly blows Jesse Chavez’s masterpiece

For most teams, the loss of their Opening Day starting pitcher – their ace – would spell doom and inevitable drop in production from the pitching staff. For the A’s,

Milone pitches gem, A’s blank Nationals 8-0

Tommy Milone hasn’t start off the season as well as he would like, so an eight-inning shutout performance has to do wonders for his confidence. The A’s southpaw received plenty
