The Oakland A’s continue to be awesome

Friday, August 5th, 2005

Well, it looked at the start of the season like this might be a bad year in Oakland. It turns out, all we needed to do was be patient and wait. Unlike the Giants who are in a death spiral of steriod withdrawls (without Barry “I didn’t inhale, or at least know what I was inhaling” Bonds), the A’s are red hot!

How hot are they? They’ve won 34 of their last 42 (that’s 34-8 for a winning percentage of .810 for the math challenged out there) since the end of May.

Or said another way, they’re so hot I was disappointed when they lost their first game in over a week on Wednesday, to only take 3 of 4 in the Metrodome. 3 month’s ago I would have been happy (and I mean HAPPY) to get a split of a 4 game series there.

Way to go A’s!
