I am an A's fan living in Seattle. I have watched with dismay the last three games on local TV as the A's were swept with ease. The A's are terrible. They have no life, no passion, and had no chance to win even one of these games. The M's are not that good. The three starters that shut down the A's were nothing special, and were the equivalent of a # 3 and two # 5's, and they all made the punchless A's look.......punchless!
When you consider the four team division the A's have no chance to be anything but # 4. Did Billy Beane channel the Pirates or is it the Royals? As an A's fan I have never been so discouraged. Should Major League Baseball take up the issue of contraction again the A's would be under consideration to just disappear....much the same way this season did before Memorial Day.
Can anyone talk me off the ledge?
