    90s

    The Yankees and Rangers gave us a retro night in Arlington.

  2. A’s lose Craig Gentry to broken hand, call up speedster Billy Burns

    Jul 28, 2014, 5:17 PM EDT

    Craig Gentry A's

    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.

  3. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 29, 2014, 7:01 AM EDT

    Phillies celebrate

    Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Washington Nationals. The Big Question: Can the Nationals reclaim their throne atop the NL East? The Nationals were everybody’s…

  5. Nationals avoid arbitration with Jerry Blevins

    Jan 17, 2014, 6:57 PM EDT

    Jerry Blevins

    The Nationals and reliever Jerry Blevins have avoided arbitration with a one-year deal worth $1.675 million, reports Ben Nicholson-Smith. Blevins was eligible for arbitration for the second time. The Athletics traded Blevins to the Nationals last month in exchange for minor league outfielder Billy Burns. In 60 innings last season, Blevins posted a 3.15 ERA…

  6. Nationals get their lefty, acquire Jerry Blevins from A’s

    Dec 11, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Jerry Blevins

    Washington has been linked to basically every possible left-handed reliever all offseason and the Nationals finally snagged one, acquiring Jerry Blevins from the A’s for minor-league outfielder Billy Burns. Blevins was expendable because of Oakland’s impressive bullpen depth, but he’s been much more than a strict southpaw specialist with a 2.81 ERA and 132 strikeouts…

  7. Bob Melvin gets bailed out by overpowering Verlander

    Oct 10, 2013, 11:37 PM EDT

    Bob Melvin

    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…

  8. A’s bullpen finally has an off night

    Oct 8, 2013, 8:52 PM EDT

    Sean Doolittle

    Oakland’s bullpen entered Tuesday having gone nine straight games without allowing a run, dating back to Sept. 23. That streak snapped quickly in Game 4, with the bullpen surrendering five runs in two innings in the 8-6 loss. Sean Doolittle allowed the first two runs, one coming on Victor Martinez‘s disputed homer. He hadn’t allowed…

  9. ALDS Preview: Tigers vs. Athletics

    You can’t predict baseball, but you can at least lay out the parameters. So let’s take a look at what the Tigers and Athletics have in store for us in the American League Division Series. The Teams Detroit Tigers (93-69) vs. Oakland Athletics (96-66) The Matchups Game 1 Friday in Oakland: Max Scherzer vs. Bartolo…

  10. Sewage problems at O.co Coliseum no problem for the Athletics as they cut their magic number to one

    Sep 21, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Twins Athletics Baseball

    D.J. Short posted earlier about the O.co Coliseum’s latest sewage issue as a result of rain in the Oakland area. The showers caused a two-hour delay while players, coaches, and clubhouse personnel dealt with the primitive conditions indoors. Once play resumed, the A’s wasted no time getting on the board. Alberto Callaspo contributed an RBI…

  11. “Sewage issues” still being mopped up in Oakland

    Sep 18, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    Keep-Out-Sewage-Treatment-Sign-S-9098

    Last night the A’s had to avoid part of their dugout because of sewage coming up through the drains–which is an “issue” that’s occurred multiple times in Oakland this season–and Rael Enteen of CSNBayArea.com passes along a photo from this afternoon showing that things are still being mopped up: Sewage issues don’t appear to be…

  12. Jarrod Parker taken out due to hamstring injury

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics starter Jarrod Parker had to leave this afternoon’s game against the Cardinals in the fourth inning after surrendering a two-out double to Allen Craig. As Parker followed through on the pitch, he crumpled to the ground, clutching at his right leg. CSN Bay Area’s Nate Stuhlbarg is reporting that the right-hander suffered a hamstring…

  13. Seth Smith is bummed he didn’t get to pitch the 21st inning Monday night

    Apr 30, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    Seth Smith

    The A’s got through 19 innings using eight pitchers Monday against the Angels and they would have kept Jerry Blevins in for the 20th if not for Brandon Moss‘s walkoff shot. Had it gone to the 21st, it was going to be Seth Smith’s game. “It was bittersweet when Moss hit the home run because…

  14. Athletics lose Coco Crisp, Yoenis Cespedes to injury in extras

    Apr 13, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Coco Crisp, Jhonny Peralta

    The A’s lost two outfielders to injury Friday when Coco Crisp departed with a strained left groin and Yoenis Cespedes came out for a pinch-hitter with a left hand injury. X-rays were negative on Cespedes’ hand, CSNBayArea.com’s Casey Pratt reports. Cespedes was injured on an awkward slide into second while attempting a steal in the…

  15. A’s find common ground with John Jaso, Seth Smith

    Jan 17, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Seth Smith

    The A’s cut their remaining arbitration cases in half Thursday by agreeing to one-year deals with newly acquired catcher John Jaso and left fielder-designated hitter Seth Smith. Reliever Jerry Blevins and first baseman-outfielder Brandon Moss are the team’s remaining arbitration-eligible players. Jaso, picked up from the Mariners in a three-team deal Wednesday, was eligible for…

  16. Brett Anderson on A’s roster for ALDS following oblique injury

    Oct 6, 2012, 3:20 PM EDT

    Brett Anderson Getty

    The Athletics have officially announced their roster for their series against the Tigers in the ALDS, which will begin tonight in Detroit. No big surprises in here, but Casey Pratt of CSNBayArea.com passes along word that Brett Anderson is indeed on the roster after straining his oblique during a start in Detroit on September 19.…

  17. Orioles, Yankees drop one-run games

    Sep 23, 2012, 5:08 PM EDT

    Matt Wieters

    A pair of lengthy winning streaks came to an end Sunday, as both the Yankees and Orioles lost one-run games to keep the status quo atop the AL East. The Orioles saw their six-game streak conclude in losing 2-1 to Boston. Baltimore caught a very bad break in the top of the ninth, when Jim…

  18. Brandon McCarthy visits the A’s, shows off his scar

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:12 PM EDT

    Brandon McCarthy (via Amanda McCarthy on twitter)

    For the first time since being discharged from the hospital, Brandon McCarthy visited the A’s on Friday. “Everybody was really excited to see him and I think he was very excited to see us, too,” reliever Jerry Blevins said. “There’s just nothing that compares to the clubhouse atmosphere and just having him back and being…

  19. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:06 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Just gonna warn you: this was written as cold medicine was taking effect, with wine — ill advised, I know — and while listening to the new xx album. Lots of heavy stuff here, not best for reason or, for that matter, the reading of box scores.  But we’ll soldier through because this is the…

  20. Now that, my friends, is a save

    Sep 12, 2012, 1:31 AM EDT

    Jerry Blevins

    Oakland’s Jerry Blevins replaced Grant Balfour in a 6-5 game with runners at the corners and no outs against the Angels on Tuesday night. He promptly struck out Kendrys Morales and induced a double-play ball from Howie Kendrick to give the A’s a win. The Angels were attempting to come back from 6-3 down in…

  21. The Athletics win in walk-off fashion again

    Aug 4, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Coco Crisp Reuters

    I’d be lying if I said I stayed up to watch the very end of this, but the Athletics topped the Blue Jays 5-4 in 15 innings last night — or, early this morning, depending on your time zone — for their major-league leading 13th walk-off win of the season. Coco Crisp played the role…

  22. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 30, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Twins 3, Athletics 2: Holy ninth inning rally, Batman! Josh Willingham hits a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth off Brian Fuentes after the Twins were shutout for six innings by Jarrod Parker and two by Jerry Blevins and Grant Balfour. Angels 5, Yankees 1: The Angels win again and are now…

  23. Running down the rosters: Oakland Athletics

    Feb 9, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    Kurt Suzuki, Brandon McCarthy

    At least to the outside eye, it seems like the A’s have lacked a plan since they shipped off Matt Holliday after 93 games in 2009. It finally appeared that they were going for a full rebuild this winter, but after trading Trevor Cahill, Andrew Bailey and Gio Gonzalez, they re-signed Coco Crisp for $14…
