This team, am I right? One week they pull together a four-game sweep of the Yankees; the next they drop four straight to Houston. The next weekend they sweep the Chicago White Sox in Chicago and take the first one from Houston, but despite a near-endless supply of home runs, they can't overcome their own pitching, and drop the middle game, and the lifeless series finale to the Astros. That's where we sit: The A's are coming off a good week since I last saw you; they went 4-2 on the week, not bad for a whole lot of youngsters trying to navigate The Show.
Tonight will feature Sonny Gray as he tries to open the series on a high note; the A's don't often see the Braves, so it should be fun. Look for our old friend, Ron Washington!
