It was yet another good week for Oakland A’s baseball, and thus the A’s Twitterverse. From Frankie Montas’ first win as a starter, to Matt Chapman’s ridiculous arm, scroll down to relive the week that was.
Good to know that someone has a fond memory stemming from the 2013 ALDS.
5 years ago I moved to the Bay w/ the girl I marry tomorrow. I was scared we’d lose our love for the game being so far from home & our Phils. She took me to an @Athletics game. Game 2 2013 ALDS. Sonny v Verlander. She gave me this team. How can you not be romantic about baseball?— Sal Ferraro (@salferraro) May 27, 2018
Just look at this smile.
Manaea gave up 6 runs and shaved his head the next day – let’s hope this isn’t his “Britney” moment.

Just a general shoutout to 6’8” Nate, and all the great GIFs that came from his tenure (also, check out his Fangraphs piece).

We‘re gonna need a masked Canha bobblehead.
Can we get this guy on the mound ... just once? Please?
This Matt Chapman throw was a few days ago and I forgot about it, but he's cool to watch so whatever here it is.— David Adler (@_dadler) May 23, 2018
Check out how once he saw Teoscar Hernandez getting down the line (sprint speed: 29.5 ft/sec), he just casually ripped an 89.1 mph throw over to 1st for the out. pic.twitter.com/7XGkqeAkdO
Well, this is refreshing.
Hey @davekaval, no requests or suggestions. Just thanks for doing all you do to make things great— Andy Kleiber (@akondrake) May 27, 2018
For us long-distance A’s fans, it’s great to watch the Coliseum evolve from afar.
