I miss the Bay Area and this was one of the reasons why. The fact that we have great baseball here makes me wish I was back in the Bay for this weekend series.
All three games had 9th inning drama. And even though it sucked that the Giants won the first two games, the fact that the A’s won the last one in this kind of fashion was something to behold. Giants fans have gotten worse every year and since 2010, the bandwagon scum has been pretty brutal.
But now with that walk-off, it ended interleague play on a good note. This is a new era of A’s baseball. AJ Griffin pitched well. Brandon Hicks with big hits. Brandon Moss doing big things. In fact, the entire roster is pretty much mostly new players. And with Derek Norris apparently the team’s catcher of the future, we might have something good for the future of this team.
Go A’s! Baseball baby!
