Am I supposed to recap the game? Am I supposed to break it down?
If you have been following the A’s for the last 2 months, you know what happened. They fell a run short. Opportunities were squandered. A bounce here or there and there would have been victory.
Instead it was another agonizing loss and then the indignity of sitting and waiting through an extra inning game between the Angels and the Mariners that didn’t go their way either.
They need to win tomorrow. The Mariners will be throwing King Felix against a practice squad team in Seattle.
Win and all of this will be gone.
Lose and suddenly… yikes. I don’t even want to think it.
Just win, already. I have no more teeth left to grind.
I guess I should update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
