Well it isn’t quite the same thing as advancing in the ALDS, but you know a little piece of Billy Beane sees this as revenge for that ousting from the playoffs 11 years ago. Moneybag Yankees roll into town and get swept in a 4 game series (by 4 runs total). Good for the A’s though. That’s all you can say. Anybody who thinks this weekend was a complete fluke and that the A’s “got lucky” is an idiot. The A’s are an above average team that’s been playing lights-out baseball. Wouldn’t be surprised to see them in the mix for the second wild card spot come September.
P.S.- If for no other reason, I need to quit delivering pizza solely because of the fact that I can’t listen to one more fucking Sterling botch job. Guy made the game-tying home run sound a lazy fly to center.
