    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PVP that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on Root Sports unless otherwise noted.

    7-18 Mike Fiers, RHP vs. Kendall Graveman, RHP 9:05

    7-19 Dallas Keuchel, LHP vs. TBA 9:05

    7-20 Doug Fister, RHP vs. Daniel Mengden, RHP 2:35


    Tuesday was supposed to be Manaea but he was used in an emergency situation on Sunday. The A's have not announced a replacement yet.

    Man, TBA is everywhere. I swear we just faced him yesterday... must have been traded.

    The game tonight is going to be streamed on Yahoo for free if anyone is interested. I have Amazon Fire TV so I downloaded the Yahoo app on it to see how it works tonight (assuming it doesn't get blacked out since I am in DFW)

    I want to say sweep but with the way the A's played us before the break and how they just played Toronto, I'll be happy with 2-1. I do expect them to exact revenge on Graveman tonight. Also, let's hope the Halos give the Rangers hell.

    Hopefully Graveman doesn't look like a grave digger against us like he did last time out. I like our matchup with TBA...he should be tired after starting just yesterday.

    Dillon Overton likely to be the spot starter on Tuesday.

    Should take 2 of 3...although, I really just want a sweep.

    I hope Fiers can bring it tonight.

    A's always play us tough. Hopefully we got 2 out of 3.

    A series win puts us at .500 or better on the road.

    Meanwhile, Texas follows us to the west coast to play the Angels who have warmed up lately winning 7 of their last 10.

    We should come back from this road trip no worse than 3.5 back.

    Question. Was wondering if the Astros have any interest in Chapman? Looks like we don't need a closer anymore but I dunno.

    On a broader note, are we going after anyone in the deadline? Upgrades at bat perhaps?
