A quick recap of a busy Friday around MLB, including an AL West showdown.
Aug 24, 2014, 8:56 AM EDT
The A’s and Angels are tied again at the very top of the American League West standings. Jon Lester struck out seven and allowed just one run on five hits and a walk, and Coco Crisp scored the go-ahead run on an eighth-inning wild pitch as Oakland topped the visiting Halos 2-1 on Saturday.

A’s outfielder Craig Gentry began the season on the disabled list with a back injury and now, after hitting just .264 with zero homers and a .625 OPS in 80 games, he’s going on the shelf again with a broken hand.

The A’s reached the halfway mark of their season Sunday, and it’s tough to find too much fault with what took place over the first 81 games.

The best record in Major League Baseball belongs to the Athletics. So does the longest winning streak. Jesse Chavez allowed just three hits over seven scoreless innings and Coco Crisp hit a walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the 10th as Oakland defeated the visiting Red Sox 2-1 on Saturday afternoon at O.co Coliseum.

Some news out of Oakland as the A’s announce that they’ve signed Coco Crisp to a two-year contract extension. Crisp signed a two-year deal with Oakland prior to the 2012 season and the A’s exercised their 2014 option on him back in November. They obviously wanted more Coco than that, so now they have him through…

Oakland announced four decisions on players with options for 2014, exercising their contracts on Coco Crisp and Brett Anderson while declining on Kurt Suzuki and Chris Young.

These Boston Red Sox are a new kind of dynasty. I suppose there’s a question if they really ARE a dynasty, if that word “Dynasty” even means anything in today’s game, with 30 teams and the game’s structure pushing toward parity. But Boston did win its third World Series in a 10-year-span. Only eight teams…

Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

The A’s made the most impetuous decision of the postseason in starting Sonny Gray over Bartolo Colon in Wednesday’s Game 5, choosing a rookie over the guy who finished second in the AL in ERA based on one excellent performance. And how’d the follow that up? By treating Game 5 against a completely dominant Justin…
