I've recovered enough from the A's win to watch them pull out another nail biter.

I wonder how many empty seats there will be in Detroit.  The game time (1 pm) wasn't set until after the end of the business day on Friday, so many people aren't able to get off of work to go.  Tickets were on Stubhub for as little as $16.

Goooooooooooo Pirates and Dodgers!
Goooooooooooo Rays and A's!

Freddy Garcia starting an elimination game.

Dodgers, if you don't finish them off, well, you don't deserve to go on.

That would be quite something if you couldn't buy a whole city block in Detroit for less than that.

in case it doesn't get greenlit, here's what looks like a fun time at the A's game last night.  Well, fun for some other people besides this dude (not my video, but I'll apologize on the asshat who filmed it vertically)

I turned 39 years old this summer. I was explaining to some folks this week that the game against the Reds was the first time in my life I got to watch my Pirates eliminate another team in the postseason--I was only 4 in 1979 and don't remember it, and there was only one round of playoffs in 90-92. Have to say, it felt pretty good. It'll feel even better if they can send the Cards packing today...

I was with my dad at Three Rivers in 1990 for a game against the Mets the day after Pittsburgh clinched the division--they'd done it the day before, in the last game of a road trip, and the stadium was full with a raucous crowd who had hoped to see them clinch at home, but who now were just thrilled and partying. David Cone was pitching, and the crowd was making paper airplanes out of these rally signs that had been handed out, and one of them thrown from the upper deck sailed all the way to the mound when Cone was standing there, and there was a huge roar of approval and applause. I was 16, and it was all pretty exciting. Two years later I was 18, and sitting home with World Series tickets, when Bonds failed to throw out Bream and the Pirates were sent home for the third straight season. Now, as I said, I'm 39, and it's a little giddily disorienting to be experiencing games like this again.

/still watching the games with my dad, who's still somehow alive after a whole series of absurd and serious health problems in the last 2 years...

My memory is failing me... Wasn't the Sid Bream game a Game 7?

Never mind, I misread.  I thought you said 'a chance to eliminate another team'.

At least it's the last 1pm start of the post season.

My dad died a couple weeks ago after battling cancer for more than a year. He was a HUGE Giants fan. He was in the middle of chemo and radiation treatment during last year's world series. Sitting with him, watching the Giants win is a very fond memory. I swear it held him together.

Enjoy the Pirates run!

Who's an A's fan that loves working from home?

THIS GUY!!!

Crap I didn't realize the first game was on the MLB network. I was hoping to watch all the games with the aid of the DVR.
 
2013-10-07 12:52:43 PM
I'm worried that the Pirates crowd will be dull today, given the weather and the game time.

So that's what, 10:00 in Oakland?  Would it really have killed them to have multiple games on at the same time?

I was at Saturday's game. The first time I was at Alameda County Coliseum since 1986, which was probably the last time it was called Alameda County Coliseum. One of the best games I have ever seen. Sogard's play that night is not getting enough credit. If he did not smother that ball in the second (?) Detroit has a runner on 2b and may have scored.

swankywanky: in case it doesn't get greenlit, here's what looks like a fun time at the A's game last night.



So less than a Dodger game. I went with a friend who wore his Detroit hat and Jersey. It made for a great back and forth with the crowd around us and some good discussion. I saw an A's game at the Cell and was comparing notes with some of the people next to me. I put on my A's cap and no one would even acknowledge my existence.

I rocked my Tigers hat for Game 5 last year, and was mostly around senior citizens, so I didn't have to take a lot of crap.  I'm Deaf, so I don't have to listen to any shouted extracurriculars.  After the game, I just shared some polite handshakes with the A's fans in my section.

/Have a ticket to Game 5 this year, too.

Similar story, and it involves sending the Cardinals packing:
Up in Boston in 2004, the first three games of the World Series was a non-stop party for me group of friends. Someone was always hosting everyone over  at their place to drink a ton, watch the game, and bask in the afterglow of the comeback in the ALCS. But as soon as the Sox were up 3-0 against the Cardinals, none of our friends were around anymore. No more parties, no more friends meeting out at the bar. Everyone seemed to make plans with their dads to go watch game 4. Just in case it was a sweep.

Did he just say that he can't think of a better situation to bunt than runner on 2nd in the 3rd inning? Really?
 
2013-10-07 02:18:49 PM
Nice golf swing from Reddick.
 
2013-10-07 02:19:08 PM
Reddick with a HR to right and it's 2-0 Oakland
 
2013-10-07 02:19:28 PM
Homer followed by a triple!

That was almost the same pitch.

Most awkward HR swing I have ever seen. Beautiful.
 
2013-10-07 02:22:09 PM
That was a seriously weak throw.

3-0 A's!!!
 
2013-10-07 02:22:59 PM
That throw was sad

Big test for Parker. Can he get through the heart of the Tiger's a second time.

OK Parker - just one ground ball away from getting out of this.

Ugh. If he adjusts for the second pass he is fine, but this looks like he hasn't.

Well shiat.
 
2013-10-07 02:37:18 PM
shiat. Time to start biting my nails.

That was a fat pitch to Martinez. Lucky it wasn't a 3 run homer.
