Can’t the A’s let their fans be happy for 24 hours?

I didn’t even get a chance to write a Dodged Bullet – Teeth Grinder for yesterday and the A’s lost a crusher today.

A 3-0 crusher.

Freddy Gavlis (???) hit a 2 run, 2 out, 2 strike 7th inning homer and that was all the Phillies needed.

The A’s loaded the bases against the rotten Jerome Williams and couldn’t score in the second. Once again a mediocre pitcher looks like a Cy Young contender (7 innings of shutout ball)

Oddly Williams has beaten the A’s 3 times this season, each time while playing for a different team. Evidently he also did so with the Astros and the Rangers this year.

If Adam Dunn wasn’t as slow as a glacier, he might have been able to score from second on a single, but hey. He is not here for his legs.

So one step forward in the wonderful Friday night win, and one step back with this crappy outcome.

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

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