That might be the better percentage play but I think the A's acted on instinct today. They pretty much had the crowd roaring, every thing going their way. Why give a free out.

Wow. I can't believe they pulled that off. I was jumping for joy and I'm ill today.

The key for game 5 will be running Verlander as early as possible. Stay patient and keep the pitch count up per at bat. Play good defense and see if we can't had our setup and closer a 2-3 run lead.

Amazing comeback! What's funny is I was watching the game with a friend, who is far more knowledgable about baseball, and he's telling me the Tigers closer is going to choke.... just watch.


I figured he was just being hopeful, but he was right. The Tigers closer choked BIGTIME.


Anyways, we have to face Verlander in game 5, so I'm not getting too excited. We have trouble against pitchers who make batters miss (#1 in MLB in SO's), and Verlander is a strike out artist.

No you're definitely right. My friend was going crazy when we subbed a pinch hitter and the guy popped it up. The obvious play there is to sac-bunt the guy to 3rd with no outs. Then even a sac-fly wins the game.

Yea I didn't like the Kotaras move. The game is tied 3-3 so i would of left the superior defensive catcher. With that being said Bob Melvin is a mad scientist/witch doctor and his moves have worked out all season long.

I had to commute to work during the 9th inning so I was forced to listen to the A's walk-off on the radio, which isn't bad. Some people thought I was going crazy the way I was cheering in my car

Game 5 is going to be tough as hell, we saw what Verlander was able to do in Game 1 and even then the A's did a good job of getting the pitch count to a decent level early in the game. Just have to capitalize on opportunities when they're there.

run up the pitch count on Verlander. 121 in the first game. You think he won't go longer this time?

Running up the pitch count on him is a very very hard thing to do.

You guys should be more excited that Parker's ERA at home is almost two runs lower than on the road.

I was having a debate with a friend a few weeks ago about momentum in baseball, he argued that saying, that "momentum is only as good as the next day's pitcher" and I was saying momentum does exist. I guess we'll see tonight...

That is why it is important to gets some runs before he settles in but if we can work him where he is out of the game in the 7th/8th then you have to take that because he has the ability to go 9 innings.
