We don't even get two games tomorrow (yes, I know this is better for the team right now):

This is unreal.
It's official: Tonight's game is postponed due to field conditions. Fans just found out, and they're not happy. #Athletics— Joe Stiglich (@JoeStiglichCSN) April 5, 2014
Seriously, I would be so unbelievably furious if I was at the game. 1) Everyone paid a fortune to park (hopefully refunded) and showed up hours early to beat the dual-event crowd from the Warriors next door. 2) Oakland doesn't need to alienate the fans that drove all the way out on a Friday night to see the A's. 3) What happened to the field that couldn't be fixed from a rain? 4) At least if the sewer happens, the game still goes on. The ONLY THING the A's have going for them is the product on the field, and it was taken away tonight.
I'm going to say it again, because it bears repeating: The ONLY thing that that stadium has going for it is the product on the field--awesome and fun and a draw to the ballpark--and they absolutely CANNOT afford to mess with that, and I'm pretty upset on behalf of the fans who took time out of their day to support the A's.
Want to know the best part? We no longer get to face Chris Young. We face Felix Hernandez tomorrow instead and Young will be out of the rotation by our makeup game, some time in May. Nice work, A's. Way to completely screw over your fans AND your team.
We'll see you back here tomorrow for the regularly scheduled game.
