Maybe this was rock bottom for the A’s

There have been several times over the last few weeks I have thought “Well, it can’t get worse than THAT for the A’s.”

Then there was last night. 1-0 in the 9th with 1 out and nobody on.

6-1 final.

Out of respect for anyone’s sanity, I will not review that final inning.

Friend of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast Sean Doolittle did not have his stuff.

He summed it up best after the game on SFGate.com when he said:

” After the season’s over, are we going to look back and point at tonight and be like, ‘This is the game where the wheels came off for good,’ or are we going to be able to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and talk about how resilient we are as a team and how we were able to overcome a game like this and still get it done?”

They have 11 games left. Play well over 11 games and nobody remembers this.

Don’t and this will be all anyone will remember.

No pressure.

I guess I should update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
