    I don’t know if you just turn it on and off.

    You really think it’s impossible for the A’s to win one game in NY? Those games are complete coin flips.

    3-7 against AL playoff teams in September.

    The Yankees were missing Judge, Sanchez and Happ for the August series. Cutch wasn't there yet.

    In games that matter: the Celtics are looking pretty good.

    Billy Beane is 1-13 when his team has a chance to eliminate the opponent in the playoffs.

    1-2 in 3 pretty close games against Houston
    1-2 against Cleveland in a complete exhibition series, went to extras in both losses anyways
    1-2 against the Yankees when game 1 was a C lineup from us, some Yankee stadium bullshit in game 2
    0-1 so far when putting out the worst bullpen pieces we have after Johnson

    but OK, let's build up the narrative again

    Not really. NY is 53-28 at home. A’s flying cross country. Yankees are healthy now and playing well. I’d give Oakland a 25% of winning thst game.

    I said it a while ago but i still am not sold on the idea of heading into the playoffs with a bunch of rested players and zero momentum. Psychologically the team must be a million miles away from where we were before he started sitting everyone. Granted, they aren't tired I suppose.

    We dont match up well against the Yankees with our LH heavy SPIng, low velocity Sale, sub Par Porcello, post season Price, crappy Pen. Have to hope A's win the WC game I guess but that says a lot about our confidence after 107 wins. Jesus


    And screw the Bruins promo during a Yankee game you NESN jerks

    It says a lot about your confidence. Most of us take this game for what it is, meaningless.

    If they come out flat in the ALDS, Cora is going to receive a lot of criticism for his managing leading up to the playoffs. It's an unorthodox strategy that better work.

    So is the plan to just play like crap until next week assuming they will be good?

    We dont know who our "opponent will be.

    Anything can happen in a one game playoff. Anything.

    Hembree in the mix with Pom, Johnson and Cuevas doesn’t sound good for him.

    The A’s have an incredibly deep bullpen to go 3-6 outs at a time. If Fiers gives them 3-4 good innings it’s a toss up.

    Rodney and Familia in the cauldron of Yankee Stadium in October?

    Good luck with that, Oakland!

    Echoing this sentiment.... I know this game means nothing, but it pisses me off to see them getting absolutely manhandled by the Yankees.
