Oakland will not make the playoffs

no way to know that. the angels have been down many different times this season, but they've gotten back off the mat and rallied. the A's have the character to do the same thing. 

 

lighten up. enjoy some trash talk. this thread is for a's fans lurking. busting capillaries.

Hi Carl. How's it going buddy? - Scott

We went from 3 1/2 back to 5 games up in 18 days. Oakland has a great team and they could do the same. When the math says Oaklands done then I can relax. Not before.

The next three with Seattle will show the direction the A'ths take for the rest of the season. The M's are currently the third WC team in the standings, 4.5 in back of the A's.

Ideal scenario for the Angels would be the Mariners beat Oakland now, catch up to the point where they're basically equal to each other in the standings, then split their remaining games against each other.

The ideal option is to have the Angels continue to win each series until November.

the Adam Dunn acquisition is interesting.

 

I jokingly said on another thread that they should give Dunn the number that former A's slugger (and a guy who played for a lot of teams) Dave Kingman used to wear.

 

because they're the same type of hitter -- HR or strikeout guy.

 

Kingman hit 442 MLB career HRs and struck out 1,816 times in his MLB career over 14 seasons good for 15th on the all time strike out list.

 

and Dunn? He has 460 HRs and 2.352 strikeouts over 16 seasons.

 

that made me think Dunn is on pace to be the all time strike out king -- and he is (245 K's behind Reggie Jackson)

 

Dunn at 2.352 is THIRD on the all time strike out list behind Reggie Jackson 2,597 and Jim Thome at 2,548 (looks like Thome retired just in time)

 

Dunn is first for active players , next is (active?) A-Rod (5th all time) at 2,075.

 

Bobby Abreu is 13th all time (and 3rd active?) 1,840.

 

Jeetz is 14th all time and 4th (active?) 1,827.
