    MLB Adds Some Special Effects to Yoenis Cespedes’ Historic Throw (Video)

    If you haven’t seen the utterly insane throw by Athletics left fielder Yoenis Cespedes that nabbed the Angels’ Howie Kendrick at home plate the other night, you must go watch that right now. Unbelievable, isn’t it? That play is going to be on MLB highlight reels forever. When A’s fans talk about it, the conversation […]

    “Bad British Commentary”: MLB Edition (Video)

    “Bad British Commentary” is a recurring feature comedy web series Words In My Mouth from YouTube channel The Whistle. It exists under one singular principle: To imagine what American sports would sound like if they had somewhat clueless and very British commentators, and they’ve just come out with a new Major League Baseball edition. The […]

    The MLB regular season has begun, and while the San Diego Padres’ Ball Girls appear to be in mid-season form, just seven hours up the I-5 North in Oakland, the A’s fans still seem to be shaking off the leftover rust from a long off-season. Unfortunately for the dude in the GIF below, it appears […]

    This Day In Sports History (October 17th) — The Earthquake Series

    It was on this day in 1989 that Game 3 of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland A’s was cancelled following the Loma Prieta Earthquake.  The earthquake struck the city of San Francisco approximately 30 minutes before game-time, causing massive chaos to ensue at Candlestick Park and around the city.

    Oakland A’s Fans Sure Love to Dance (Videos)

    Oakland sports fans are a pretty spirited demographic. However, whereas the Raiders fans like to expend a lot of energy beating each other up, the Athletics fans apparently prefer to dance their crazy out. This is especially true right now. After edging out the Rangers and the high-priced Angles to win the AL West last […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/26/2013 — A.J. Griffin

    The Oakland A’s headed into last night’s contest against the Cincinnati Reds having lost in each of A.J. Griffin‘s last five starts.  But thanks to a near-flawless performance from Griffin, that losing streak wouldn’t reach six straight. Giffin got off to a shaky start as he walked a couple of batters in the opening inning, […]

    Wave Goodbye to These Giants Fans (GIF)

    This post was supposed to be about an Oakland A’s fan taunting a San Francisco Giants fan who was about to get ejected from last night’s A’s-Giants game. However, all I did was ask one little question and, all of a sudden, it turns into a post about umpire incompetence. Let me explain. You see, […]

    The Oakland Athletics were 13 games behind the Texas Rangers on June 30. Then they lost three starting pitchers from their rotation in the span of a month, with one of them—Brandon McCarthy—suffering a terrifying, life-threatening injury. So what happened to the A’s after that? They went 17-8 down the home stretch, putting together two […]
