I am tired of hearing "low scoring = boring" regarding baseball. Maybe non-fans feel that way; but actual, knowledgeable, baseball fans do not.

A no-hitter is the greatest thing a fan could see. A HR derby type of contest is repulsive.

I dont care to hear the opinion of baseball from someone who doesnt like baseball.

It aint easy being an A's fan but it sure is cheap. I get a ticket package for $40 that has 4 tickets and 6 two for one tickets and get to sit in field level seats to most games also, Tuesday nights is free parking so that also saves a bunch of cash. Stadium is still pretty empty unless the Yankees or Red Sox are in town. I'd say about 3k people at a night game...makes for short beer lines.

Ok, but this game was not close to a no hitter. There were 11H, 7BB, one player got caught stealling and picked off, and there were only 2 RBI because the first run was scored on a bases loaded double play. The two teams combined for a whopping 2-13 with runners in scoring position. The Angels only scored because the first baseman tried to avoid the second baseman and the ball bounced out of his glove. Actual, knowledgeable baseball fans left their seats after the 5th listened to the rest of the game in the car on the way home.
