Let’s take a deep breath and exhale. Yes, it’s true the A’s went a rather uninspiring 2-5 on their just-completed road trip. In the process, their three-game lead in the AL West melted away about as fast as you could say Nelson Cruz and Raul Ibanez. But let’s try to have some perspective. Despite the disappointing trip, Bob Melvin’s troops are still perched 10 games above .500 at 44-34 and trail the Texas Rangers by only one game in standings.
Maybe I will be at the Coliseum this week... wait, I am! Coco Lean bobblehead day!!!
