Open Thread: Game 107 - Oakland Athletics vs. Toronto Blue Jays (cont'd (cont'd))

He did it. Bob Melvin went to Ryan Cook for the 3rd day in a row, because dammit, he's the closer and this is a save situation. No one is the least bit surprised that he blew the save again. This time, it was a solo homer to someone whose name I literally forgot already. Cooper, I think. OK, they just said the name on the broadcast. David Cooper. That's even worse than Jeff Mathis, because at least I've heard of Jeff Mathis.

It's 1-1. Please, A's, walk this one off in the 9th. There aren't enough relievers for another marathon, and the Angels are coming to town on Monday. You're probably going to need a few arms around for that series.

RALLY THREAD!
