Three games behind Seattle.

Khris Davis has hit 106 HRs since the start of 2016, 3 behind the leader Giancarlo Stanton. (h/t NY Times)

If Treinen and Trivino can keep it up. And Edwin Jackson! I think Trevor Cahill is a legit starter, don't know why other teams didn't want him this year.

if only they could face CC everyday

2 behind NYY, close as they've been all year? With Manaea gone, they could really use that WC game in the Alameda Toilet Bowl.

Sleepy:

The A's lead all of baseball in position player WAR. What a world.

Jeff Sullivan:

In the second half they have a wRC+ of 121. No one else is above 110

It's been quiet, but the discovery of Ramon Laureano and the understandable turnaround of Stephen Piscotty have been enormous

It's no fun to analyze a situation like Piscotty's, since he's been through more than most people could imagine, but holy hell has he ever been good

One behind the Evils. Pretty good for a team with no starting rotation.

“They poisoned the well, and since they didn’t move, they now have to drink from it,” says David Peters, aka “Bleacher Dave,” who’s been going to games since 1970. “You get the attendance you deserve.”

dudes are raking today

helped by some terrible defense by the angels

you don't see position players pitching in September too often, especially in the 7th inning

Lost their first game when leading after 7 of the year last night, and it likely sank their shot at hosting the WC game.

three years pass...

Vegas, baby!

The A's have a .273 OBP. No team has had a sub.-280 OBP since 1965, just one has done so since 1910.
