    Angles/Rockies game has got to be one of the most lopsided scores in recent history I would think, 25-1 :o

    The Angels outscored the Rockies by 20 runs in the series & still lost the series. Ouch.

    Reminds me of the Yankees losing to Brooklyn one year.  They killed them in runs and still lost the series.

    A lot of mediocre teams. Which I guess is good because everyone has a chance for the wild card. There are teams underperforming and teams overperforming

    Mets last year had 101 wins.  This year they absolutely stink.

    yeah there's only a handful of really good teams and really bad teams.

    Also there should be an asterisk next to German's perfect game since it was against Oakland :tongue:

    As a long time fan of the A's, I can't really disagree too much.

    I'm really happy with the Reds this year....didn't expect much improvement over last year.

    Watched some highlights of other games last night. This whole deal with calling a strike when the timer runs out on the batter is interesting. That's going to fuck up stats or at least lead to some asterisks at some point.

    Dude, your Reds since Elly came up have been on fire!

    I believe Lodolo is still out but just think when he gets back?

    Seemed like there were more Yankees fans at the game then A's. Not sure what the attendance was but there was a lot of cheering when the final out was recorded.

    I'm really happy. Last year was such a bummer. 

    Votto's return was so kick ass.

    The ownership group has destroyed what was left of any fan morale. Even my Aunt who attends multiple games a year even with everything that has been going on is keeping away from the Coliseum. She has had enough.

    Votto is one of my all time favorites but I think they'd be better with Encarnacion Strand getting a shot if Votto is gonna be streaky guy.  Perhaps they are waiting until they need another spark to try him up.  He's killing triple A like he killed in Spring Training.

    It's about 10k. We went to a game there last year. Cool little ballpark in Summerlin. We grabbed beers and went to our seats on the first base line, sat down and went back to the concourse. It was way too damn hot (120 or so that day & that's the actual temp. No idea what the heat index was). By the time we got back to the concourse, my beer was hot, not warm. If they play there, there won't be any day games, that's for sure.

    That will be after next season. The lease runs through next year and the stadium isn’t supposed to open until 2028. There is also a pretty nice minor league field in Reno that they are looking at using. It would better in the summer, but early season and late season games would be subject to cold and snowy conditions. Maybe a mixed schedule where they play games in both cities. Las Vegas early in the season and then Reno during the summer, and then Vegas at the end of the season. Not optimal, but they have created this cluster and they are going to have to figure something out.

    Imagine how much less it would cost to just remove that garbage area in centerfield of Oakland and not be the cock that Fisher is?

    I wonder what happens to the AAA stadium in Vegas after the A’s are done with it. I don’t think any city has both MLB and AAA teams. Doesn’t the AAA team always leave after an MLB team comes in? I had originally heard that the Vegas AAA stadium was built in a way that it could be “easily” expanded. I guess that’s not the case…
