Losing 2 to the Royals. At home. Who are the worst team in baseball (possibly ever). Eric Chavez getting hurt. Mark Ellis getting hurt. Sketchy obliques, fragile hands and wonky backs. May. A bullpen full of guys we have barely heard of and can't tell apart. 3 of 4 sophomores slumping. Pop ups. . . soo many pathetic pop ups. Denny Bautista's braces. The melting of the ice in Huston Street's veins. The A's collective amnesia re what to do when runners are in scoring position. Getting beat by Matt Stairs. Losing, losing and more losing. Finding new ways of losing. Losing 10 of 11. Losing countless 1-run games. Losing after coming from behind. Losing after having a 7 run lead. Ambiorix frigging Burgos.
Buckle Down Athletics!
