      The A's lost in extra innings, frustrating as hell. :( 9 games to go now, and we have a 2 games lead on the Angels.

      It will be a nervous end to the season... 6 of these games are against the best team in the AL (Texas Rangers) and the other 3 against the Mariners, who are crap but seem to play better against the A's for some reason (or should I say, the A's play worse against them - the games between A's and M's this season have usually been among the most boring of all)

      Love it as well, not that I'm a fan or anything, just cool to see. Perfect timing considering the movie a little while ago as well! Watching ESPN earlier, there's a few pundits out there who really think the A's are a team not many will want to meet in the playoffs. Not that that means anything, but shows there's the respect there.

      Hope they do alright... apart from when they meet the Yankees ;)

      Top 8.  Redsox lead 2-1.  See what happens when they allow a Met fan in.  My 7 year old son is loving Yankee Stadium though.

      It's awesome! At the start of the season there were people saying the A's would lose over 100 games, after trading away the likes of Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill and Andrew Bailey. This is a team that consists mostly of rookies (the ENTIRE rotation is made of rookies at the moment - Parker, Milone, Straily, Griffin and Blackley) and/or total unknowns. I love it!

      To make things even better, the A's are now tied with the Rangers for the AL West lead. Last game of the regular season will therefore be a battle for the AL crown. I can't wait!

      By the way, a MLB.TV account was the best purchase I made this year. Love how there is a baseball game nearly every day. I'm gonna miss it immensely when the season ends!

      Oakland is the FIRST PLAYOFF team in baseball history that had over 100 games started by rookie pitchers.  The next best was like 68 by a Dodger team in the 1950's

      Great accomplishment.

      Nice job, sweeping Texas to win the division. 

      Now the real season starts.

      Yanks 5-1 over BoSox lookin to wrap it up ,gotta stay out of that wildcard game. Like Russian roulette

      Great season..... I'm always amazed how after 162 games it comes down to the last day for so many teams. Unreal.

      Props to Miguel Cabrera, AL Triple Crown and missed the MLB Triple Crown by .006 B/A.

      I also have to point out how many haters were getting on Jeter when he got 3000 hits. People saying he shouldn't make the HOF and will never hit over 280 again.  Well he just hit 316 w/ 216 hits which were more hits than the Triple Crown winner. 

      Am I the only one who knew Bobby V in Boston was a BAD idea?  What sucks is the Yanks played Boston for the last series of the season and it meant nothing. I'll admit, I like when the Red Sox are good because it makes the rivalry better. Maybe I'm a purist.

      But, Lets go Yanks and maybe A-Rod will actually contribute this year instead of batting .120 in the post season.

      Anyone else notice that yet again, another team misses the playoffs due to the bullshit Divisional structure. In the AL both Tampa Bay and the LA Angels have better records than Detroit, but because Detroit won their division they go to the playoffs.

      Another failure due to the need of an antiquated Divisional structure.

      I had thought about that a few times this season as I watched Jeter doing his thing. Had a great season once again.

      And I agree, though we had Baltimore(!?) right on our tails the whole season, its just not the same when its not Boston. Though beating the living sh*t out of them on the last day regardless of position will never get old! :D

      Anyone catch that O's- Yanks game last night.  Girardi pinch-hit for A-Roid in the bottom of the 9th down 2-1, brought on Ibanez who hits a game tying HR.  Then Ibanez hits the winning HR in the 12th inning.   One of the gutsiest manager moves I've ever seen.  Sitting down a future Hall of Famer for a 39 yr old journeyman.  I was shocked.  Then to have Ibanez hit 2 HR's to win , WoW.   A-Roid has got to be sick.

      I think A-roid is finished, outside of 2009 , his Yankee post-season numbers are awful.  Steroids have caught up to him. 

      Oakland A's staved off elimination with a dramatic 3-run 9th to beat the Tigers. The A's just never die, gotta love that. Game 5 tonight, I got to try and stay up for that, even if I fall asleep at work tomorrow. Looks like your team is for real Diego. Of course they're no match for the mighty Bronx Bombers.  ;)

      Giants became the first team in history to lose the first 2 at home and come back to win 3 on the road. Poor Reds . Home teams went 0-5.

      Jason Werth just hit a 9th inning walk-off HR for the Nationals to tie the series 2-2.  Game 5 Tomorrow

      What a great day for baseball.  FOUR elimination games in one day.

      Go Yanks !!!!    Wrap it up tonight and CC starts Game 1

      After the awful disappointment of Game 5 loss against the Tigers, I can finally bear to talk about Baseball again.

      And Justin Verlander... he's unreal, out of this world. Another nearly complete game for him in this playoffs, ridiculously effective too.

      Anyone watching the World Series?

      Giants won the first two games. I like Verlander but I was pissed off for seeing him suck so much in the WS, after having almost single handedly eliminated the A's.

      Come on Tigers, don't let the dark side of the Bay Area to win the whole thing... I have faith!

      Blues jays lining up a trade to get Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle from the Marlins for number of prospects. Nice to have something to be excited about coming into the spring.

      HUUUUUGE Blue Jays trade. Took basically the whole Marlins lineup (all their good players anyway). I'd be glad for the now lonely Giancarlo Stanton to come to Philadelphia (my team).

      Can't wait for the new season to start. Spring training is... erm... fun... but gets really boring after a while.

      Been reading "The Boys of Summer" by Roger Kahn, about the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 50's. Sports writing at its best. Makes me want to go back in time and watch those guys - Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, Joe Black and all the others. It's a shame the Dodgers moved away from Brooklyn.

      Baseball season started this weekend... the A's lost their 9th consecutive opening day game, an American League record. They also lost badly in the 2nd game against the Mariners but finally won a game in the third time of trying last night. Jed Lowrie is looking great so far.

      Ah....Yet again another reason why Baseball is going down the tubes.  Ryan Braun...suspended for PED's.  The same guy who last year, failed a test and due to a clerical error, in which he ruined an innocent mans life, was reinstated and the positive test overturned, has failed ANOTHER drug test and has admitted he lied and used. Of course only after he ruined a lab techs life and did everything in his power to blame that poor lab technician and slam him in the press and in public.

      These guys just lie and lie and lie and attack people who accuse them, then when the evidence is overwhelming....they admit what they did, then cry and ask for forgivness.  I dont think their is a word in the dictionary to define how much disgust and contempt I have for these players and Baseball.

      When friends and family ask me "Why do you follow Liverpool?"..."Why do you watch European Football?"  I point to any number of instances that show how US Sport is going downhill and every year I am vindicated.  Baseball has been SHIT for years.

      Add A-roid to that, could be facing a lifetime ban. So much for the HR record Alex. Couldn't happen to a bigger dirt-bag. 

      Then compare to Derek Jeter, comes back from 3 month injury and first pitch back, BOOM, HR. So Jeteresque.  Easily best Yankee of his time. First ballot HOF. Without question.

      What a difference in class between the two.

      As someone who only recently started to watch baseball, I can't say I've known the game before the PED scandals... so recent news do not affect as much as it probably does to guys like you two. However, it is a shame to see the discussion of such a beautiful game revolving around cheating, bans, and stuff like that - it's annoying and truly saddening.

      I still think a greater debate over PEDs is necessary, I think the definition of a thing such as 'doping' is quite subjective and up for discussion. Anyway, it's undeniable that the ethics and the image of the game have been severely damage with all these scandals in recent years.

      By the way, what do you guys think of Barry Bonds omission in the HOF?
