    Oakland is 1-8 against us and 49-32 against everybody else.

    Let's go ahead and keep that going.

    A's will be ready for this test.

    They know how important it is to go into break with some positives for that WC berth... I'll be fair and say 2-2 split. 3-1 vs A's would say alot about this team IMO. Not easy. We've run into some injuries and need the guys at the bottom to produce.

    They've gone 16-5 since we swept them in the middle of June. They played some scrub teams, but also took 4 of 6 from the Indians in the last 10 days.

    Three wins will do, while BOS and NYY lose twice in the next three days.

    A's will likely be competing for playoffs the next few years. They unfortunately are in the same division as the Astros.

    Tucker trying to pull everything so far. That one was a perfect ball - fastball up and out - to drive to LF.

    George jammed himself on that one, he squared it up but if he pulls his hands in and gets it off the barrel it goes 400+ ft.
