Memoirs of a third deck reject

Back in the days before tarps and sewage leaks, there was a culture to the Coliseum’s third deck — one that people who aren’t A’s fans simply can’t understand. Often times, when

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

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)
