I don’t think I have been this excited about A’s baseball since their Moneyball days. The fact that this team is winning games when nobody thought they would makes it special. What also makes the games special are the finishes — the walk-offs.
I do wonder about this A’s team and if they will make a trade today at the deadline. They need a bat at shortstop and a really could use another arm in the pen. At this point, I am OK with them parting away with some of the key components to this fun run (Griffin?) but if this team is serious about winning, they have to make the move.
The A’s are only 3.5 games out of first place and even though it is unlikely Texas will give that division lead up, it shows how good this A’s team is right now. Everything is fun right now. None of that weak stuff on the other side they call “torture” or whatever. This is just fun.
