    Athletics 14, Tigers 4: We had this game on for a bit, got bored and decided to watch some random stuff we had recorded. When the show ended we went back to the game to see the A’s up 14-1. Allison let’s out a big “oh for f***’s sake!” and quickly turns on the “Awesom-O”…

    BJ UPTON

    B.J. Upton has been so bad lately that dudes who are bad have been like, “damn, B.J., you’re really bad.” THAT’s how bad he’s been.  But he came through when it mattered last night. A day after yet another benching, Upton had two hits, including a walkoff RBI single in the tenth. Sure, it was…

Dave O’Brein got Gonzalez’s joking-but-pointed comments: “We’re waiting for…
