Three Teams Combined For One Run

I follow the Red Sox, A’s and Giants in this year long tally.

Those three teams combined for one run on the 4th of July, 2014.

Not much in terms of fireworks. Now to be fair, the Red Sox had an excuse. Their game was washed out.

The Giants? No so much. Once again a great pitching performance by the team was squandered and the lowly Padres beat them 2-0.

And the A’s and Blue Jays couldn’t score until Oakland walked off with the only run.

Not a lot of offense. But a collective record of 1-1-1 for the day,

Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

Did Max Scherzer make a mistake turning down the big contract by the Tigers? And what is the risk of signing an ace?

WFAN’s Jason Keidel and I talk about that and go on a few other tangents on today’s episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Zack Greinke, Max Scherzer, David Peralta, Steve Pearce, Vance Worley, R. A. Dickey, Marcell Ozuna andJose Altuve   all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball.

All the A’s needed was some home cooking

OK, the trip to Detroit sucked for the A’s. Tough losses… close losses… the kind that bring back nightmares of the last 2 post seasons.

But alas, a trip back to the East Bay and all is well. Granted, there was a strange replay that didn’t go their way. And they had a strong R. A. Dickey performance to contend with. But in the end, Sonny Gray was great, Sean Doolittle put Rajai Davis behind him and the A’s remain the only team playing above .600.

With the Orioles and Red Sox washed out, if the A’s win today, they will knock the only Canadian team out of first place on the 4th of July.

TAKE THAT, KING GEORGE!
