When it comes to predictions versus reality, actions versus results, this 2015 Athletics season has often appeared as lopsided and nonsensical as a fun-house mirror reflection. Tuesday night, Oakland found themselves staring down a mirror image of a different sort: a flipped likeness of their previous game where the A’s more »

The A’s clung to a 1-0 lead after six innings Sunday afternoon when the game turned into a battle of the bullpens, a painful phrase for Athletics fans to hear this season. All too familiarly, Oakland coughed up the lead in the top of the seventh, however the resilient A’s more »

A’s losses in 2015 generally fall into at least one of three categories: poor offense, miserable defense, or bullpen disaster. The Rays and A’s combined to go yard five times during Saturday’s lively match-up, and the A’s even flashed some nifty glove-work, but in what has become the most familiar of the three scenarios, the more »

With one chance left to avoid not only the series sweep but an entire road trip sweep, there’s no one the A’s would have wanted on the mound Monday night other than Sonny Gray. But despite the presence of their ace, the A’s fell once more in Baltimore, a solemn more »

After their victimization at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays, the A’s were looking forward to a fresh start Friday at Camden Yards. What transpired instead was Oakland’s fourth straight loss, a wild 13 inning grinder capped off by a walk-off homer from Manny Machado. Machado, who has dazzled all year, smashed more »

If Bob Melvin thought that yesterday’s error-laden second inning was the worst the A’s had seen all year, it had nothing on the the demoralizing ugliness of today’s seven-run second frame. The Blue Jays batters were once again on fire, effortlessly trouncing the Athletics 10-3 for their 10th win in a row.
