This A's team is strange. They don't have a single regular with an average above .247 and they only have one starter with an ERA below 4.12. Seems like they are where they are in part because their bullpen is incredible, but they're going to need others to step up, and they can't ask Hendriks to bail them out of every game, can they?This is such a strange season. Maybe this is the one where Beane's club goes the distance?
He was bad this year (.667 OPS) but also this was his first game action since Sept. 17. Margot didn't look good in the field tonight (even though he used to play for SD, although probably mostly CF) so Meadows will probably start against the righty Garcia tomorrow.Austin Meadows reduced to a PH (he can't field right now?) certainly widens the talent gap.
