Can a manager make any more bad moves and
still win a game than what Ned Yost did for
the Royals last night?
1. Taking James Shields out of the game.
2. Bringing in a starter who threw 70+ pitches 2 days ago when you have a lights out bullpen.
3. Running a ridiculous double steal in the 1st I

Remarkable. Surprised the TV announcers didn't bring up the most obvious observation...this game
was the A's season in a nutshell. Start off strong, but fade down the stretch. When you blow
2-0, 7-3, & 8-7 leads you just have to say it just wasn't meant to be.

Anybody questioning why A's skipper Melvin put in god awful Jason Hammel LN & not Mr. Notre Dame, Jeff Smardjiza with their season on the line?
*****


Can TBS please drop the Cal Ripken Jr. experiment. He offers nothing, was AWFUL and worst of all is holding the excellent Ron Darling back. Somebody please ask Cal if he did uppers to keep his consecutive game streak going since he played in the "uppers" era of baseball and be done with him.
Just worthless...worthless.

TUESDAY
I don't understand all of these wild card teams
(Pitt/SF/Oak/KC) all celebrating for making the post season. It's one and done. For the losers, what did they really accomplish? Nothing. So they played one extra game. Big deal. I thought Oakland & KC really overreacted.
******

Watch everybody jump on the bash Dennis Allen bandwagon. I was ripping him from DAY 1 when he failed to have a back up center ready for their game @ San Diego. I knew and said right then this guy was a loser and would be fired within 3 years.
I love it how other hosts have the guts (lack thereof) to rip a guy after the fact, but not the brains to realize things as they are happening.
*******

Oakland named Tony Sparano its interim head coach.
Why? Did they look at his Dolphins head coaching record?
