We’re back with A’s Week in Twitter, where we round up the best of the Oakland Athletics Twitterverse. You wouldn’t know that Khris Davis crushed an MLB-leading 48 homers this year, because on Twitter, his record 4th-straight year of batting .247 has been by far a bigger story. So from Khris’ consistency, to clinching the Wild Card spot, scroll to see what made the cut!
This is really happening, huh?

Reminder of the journey that got us here.
Ah yes ... hilarious.
Exciting news everyone, with the A’s officially in the playoffs this play is officially hilarious https://t.co/kIkvjNBz0v— Tim Eckert-Fong (@teckertfong) September 25, 2018
Time for Brad to dust off the ol’ uni.

Who even cares about the home run title, anyway?

Wired: Khris Davis going for a record fourth consecutive season with the same batting average
Needs to finish with one hit in 3/4/5 at-bats, or two hits in 7/8/9 at-bats.https://t.co/LBzSvaw9Ud pic.twitter.com/ykYatjG6Gy
that’s what they say about a guy like Khris Davis — he can just roll outta bed and hit .247 https://t.co/byI1CYEnFy— Cespedes Family BBQ (@CespedesBBQ) September 30, 2018
It bodes well he sees this as a dream.
Why the A's are so much fun:Matt Chapman "as anyone who grew up loving baseball, the opportunity to play in Yankee Stadium(Wed.) for the chance to open a division series in Fenway Park is a dream come true."— Peter Gammons (@pgammo) September 30, 2018
Seven. Earned. Runs. All. Year.
Blake Treinen is the first reliever in history with 30+ saves, an ERA under 1, and 100 strikeouts.— j (@j_nyy) September 30, 2018
My biggest fear is the Yankees trailing in the late innings on Wednesday and having to face him
Who woulda thunk?
Security guard here at Safeco told me, “Every baseball fan in America who doesn’t have a team in the playoffs this year is rooting for the A’s. What a great story.”— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) September 24, 2018
Music to our ears.
If the A’s go with Johnny Bullpen in the WC game, I reckon they will be sitting pretty! Never easy to hit a team using a different pitcher every inning. Saves rotation for ALDS. I’m actually hella excited for the @Athletics #goAs #builtforthepostseason #darkhorse— Travis Blackley (@Travis_Blackley) October 1, 2018
Still worried about Hendriks starting the big game? Fear not, puppies believe in him.
