    3 double plays, and Turbo wasn’t to blame for any of them?

    done after the first inning bullshit…waste of time tonight…ridiculous…later kids…

    And all these sucky players have one thing in common… Banner Bank.

    Has Ichiro! ever hit into two DPs in the same game?

    You can’t go into Oakland, hit into constant dp’s, hit exactly NO homers and expect to win…no matter how bad their batting is supposed to be

    Just not gonna happen

    218: Seems like Mark Mulder did something like that very early in the season last year before going on the DL — hitting like a two-run single in a game in which he was getting shelled.

    251: Go figure!

    With having to face Haren, Hardin and Blanton in the rest of this series, is a split even minutely possible?

    #121, 127 — the A’s have a Dominican academy (you can read about it, and specifically Tejada in “Away Games: The Life and Times of a Latin Baseball Player by Marcos Breton, Jose Luis Villegas) and FWIW, Scutaro, Calero, Casilla, Loaiza are also on the team.

    oh, and in the recent past … Long, Justice, Durham, McLemore, Rhodes, Gant, McMillon, Singleton, Bynum, Payton, Shannon Stewart

    oh, and you can’t go wrong with a plain old apple pie.

    although, a chocolate cream pie is not bad, either.

    I’m sure everyone’s gone…but let me ramble on anyway…

    Jeez, I didn’t realize Scutaro was from Venezula! I had him pegged as continuing the fine tradtion of Italian-American players! (That’s my big hmmm…when the African-American community bemoans the loss of significant numbers, why aren’t any Italian-Americans crying?) And how odd, both Calero and Loaiza are on the DL; probably why I didn’t think of them. If I may be all conspiracy theory, may I point out that none the Latins on the team are dark-skinned Latins? I’m not trying to start anything, honest. I’m just wondering how much of the A’s troubles attracting fans have something to do with an Oakland native looking at the team and thinking, they don’t look like me, they look like some Midwest college team? Sure, Beane should get the best players he can, but what’s the point of getting into the play-offs every year if you can’t fill the place for the games?

    As for the list of African-Americans on the A’s, I can’t remember there being more than two on the team at any given time. (I’m sure I’m wrong, but what the hell.) It’s like they’re swapped out. Get rid of Long, put in Bradley. Let Payton go, get Thomas.

    I’m telling you, I’ve sat in that A’s crowd, and it’s like some bizzaro journey to Boston–a bunch of 19 year old, cursing White Boys with buzz cuts.

    The A’s don’t attract fans because the Colliseum sucks, period. Its been completely re-designed as a football stadium that the baseball side suffers. Throw in the fact it’s old and not very appealing and you have low attendance.

    As far as the white 19 year old comment, not sure what you’re talking about, the crowds in Oakland are as multi-ethnic as any I’ve ever seen.
