Last night I watched about 3 innings of the game then put on a movie. Once the A's are down a few runs there is no reason to watch the team. I know that unless its a pitchers duel the A's will not score more than 5 runs. To me this is the toughest season to watch the A's that I can remember.
I would not mind seeing some rookies like Patterson, Dollittle, or Pennigton hit but to watch guys like Crosby, Giambi, and Garciaparra who will be gone next year is tough. I still do not understand why Travis Buck is in AAA hitting over .360 when we have only 3 players in the starting lineup that can hit over .250. The toughest part is watching Geren manage like a little league manager. He makes out the starting lineup and then sits in the dugout the rest of the night doing nothing. So is it me or is this team tough to watch?
