Well, not really, but it sounds better the way I just said.
Plus, it would be really swell if the A's were to take two of three in Detroit, so as not to render my Game 6 tickets worthless.
Well, at least he didn't swing at the HBP.
Now the question is, can the A's score two runs off Rogers?
And here's to hoping that it won't be all they need.
Rogers may not be a cold-weather pitcher, so I wouldn't throw in the towel just yet.
Rally the A's?
Also, who is this guy, and what has he done with Kenny Rogers? Seriously. Kenny Rogers?!?
i've said it on DT i'm rooting for Detriot no doubt but i'm aldo wondering how far the A's can go.
But honestly, for the sake of Ken, I'll sacrifice our revenge for a beat-down by the A's here.
I won't watch him until he stops pummelling the A's.
if anything look at his delivery it does not change if it's a curve or a fastball that's the difference.IMO.
I thought saber guys don't think that way Ken??
Man, I hate that dude.
do you question the A's not doing the basics?
& covering 2nd base on a stolen base
The sabermetric thing that bothers me the most is when there's a runner on third and less than two outs, and the batter takes a "let's get a walk" approach to the plate, when what you need is for them to put the ball in play.
That's been less of a problem in the last couple years with Kendall, Kotsay, and Payton. Those guys can put a ball in play. Now if only that would rub off on Crosby and Swisher, we'd be really golden.
But your point is well taken.
C'mon A's! Dagnabbit, I wanted a series out of this one.
do you guys have a guy like LoDuca short swing puts the ball in play to all fields? & does not strike out alot?
shame on you Ken!!
ps i feel like Tommy Lasorda saying that.
it doesn't matter how many runs harden gives up if we don't score any.
they haven't shown it so far.
you say it like it's a bad thing
So yes, it is a bad thing.
if anything you don't have Tomko to give up a bomb in the 7th. or do you?
Speaking of which, the bottom of the lineup, wow, it isn't good.
