About Me: Born Portland, Maine. Spent 21 years in New England. Catholic schools-Priests asked if I got the calling (to be a priest)but instead got the calling for the draft so chose(USMC). Lifelong Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, Patriots fan. Been in the other BAY AREA past 45 years(SF) and as there is a rivalry similar to NY-Boston with SF and LA, the sports bars here in No. Cal. have fans rooting for us as if I were in Boston. Still go to New England once-twice per year to visit family---extremely partial to better seafood on East Coast & better sports fans as here they are more fair weather. Had a great run though with Joe Montana/Steve Young & 49ers and recently the SF Giants 2 World Series victories and now the Warriors to hopefully, along with the Clippers, keep the Lakers out of the playoffs. Remember Wrigley's Spearment Gum Ad ? Double your pleasure, double your fun. I get almost as much pleasure watching Yankees lose as I do watching the Sox win and ditto for the Celtics winning & Lakers losing !!! When Sox & Celtics don't play NY & LA, I root for any team that does!

    This has nothing to do with Lester but I was happy to see Peavy finally get a victory after 2 losses with SF and about 10 losses in a row. He gave up 1 run & 4 hits in 7 innings and Giants gave him a more »

    Lester pitches mediocre games 9 hits 3 runs and defense saved him from more with 2 double plays and runner tossed out at the plate.  This is a game he might have lost with Boston but Oakland offense b more »

    From my iPAD....fans getting a bit edgy here in Oakland. Lester has given up 5 hits in 4 innings but luckily only 1 run with 2 double plays  & runner thrown out at the plate. A's are hitless...must re more »

    As they say in poker, Beane went all in. They'll miss Cespedes, a fan favorite, but they still are leaders in run production and Jon will mend their wounds missing Cespedes. As the A's won't be in the more »

  • Posted 07/31/2014 11:08:53 EDT

    It's not a complete sweet deal for the A's because even with Jon pitching a good game giving up 1-2 runs, 3-4 hits, without Cespedes they too are giving up a possible 1-2 runs on offense.

    I am hoping Jon gets another ring. Keeping him we still weren't even a .500 team. When he pitched, other teams pitched their best and Jon needed to not give up more than 1-2 runs, 3-4 hits because man more »
