We have got Kazmir, Chavez, and either Mills or Pomeranz depending on Pomeranz recovery. So I think we have a good shot at taking this series. But all I can do is just wait patiently and pray to God for his favor.
As painful as that was, you can make a case for the A's having this one coming. They stole 1-2 against Miami this weekend. **** happens. Win tomorrow. It's June and we just finished off a what? 17-9 month?
We out played them in every facet of the game, for every inning of the game, all the way to the bottom of the 9th. Even with Kazmir going out in the 5th due to injury. Yet ONE MAN lost the game. Because he only throws one pitch, and he finally faced a team who recognized it. Basically, because in reality we won that game tonight and only Doolittle lost, in order to take 2 of 3 we will really have to sweep them.
maybe. except he loaded the bases using his fastball just before that. a straight fastball, especially one that is consistently around the same speed, is only going to work for so long. even a 105mph fastball. Doolittle has got to learn to do something other than throw that 97mph high fastball that he throws. learn to change the speed up, learn to vary the location with pinpoint accuracy, master throwing that slider, something. cuz that one pitch aint gonna cut it.
