Today's A's, August 24th
Opponent: Baltimore Orioles
A's in the West: Second place, 3 1/2 games behind Texas, 12 games ahead of Seattle
I didn't watch yesterday's game because I was out and did not get back until late because of basically the worst post-movie Q&A I've ever been in (which is saying something because Q&A is inherently terrible), but thank god, I guess, based on the play-by-play that I read while sitting in the theater listening to actors being weirdly bad at talking, because this is just getting frustrating as all hell, this total inability to win games when the playoff spot is sitting right there just waiting to be taken and run with.
I have to admit that my fantasy team's concurrent struggles are probably playing into this as well. I think I'm having identification issues because, as I mentioned, that team is also named "Oakland" and because it has Tom Milone and Dan Straily on it.
Prediction: A's win.
