Sources are saying the A’s are interesting and “kind of good,” and that’s all the Twitterverse can ask for.
Puig’s got competition.
It was fun while it lasted.
The A's keep coming up just short on extending that record road home run streak to 28 games... #RootedInOakland— Casey Pratt (@CaseyPrattABC7) June 28, 2018
Words to live by.
Asked about hitting 95-96 today, Edwin Jackson says “I try to be young once a week.” Says he enjoys being the new guy and tying to make a good impression (he’s done it a lot.)— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) June 25, 2018
Edwin is really here to save us all.
Edwin Jackson: "I'm not playing for the money. I'm not playing for anything else but to come have fun. I've been blessed in my career. I've made enough money to have my family set and now I'm just having fun." #Athletics #MLB— Ben Ross (@BenRossSports) July 1, 2018
Stomper had it out for LA stars this week.
So Labron just signed up to lose to the @warriors more often than he already does?— Stomper (@Stomper00) July 2, 2018
No, definitely an A’s hat.
Does Muncy wear a Dodgers hat into the hall of fame?— Jeff (@EpicJeffTime) June 28, 2018
Anyone else feel like most of Cleveland was former A’s?
Is this ... moneyball?
At 41-38, the Oakland Athletics have the exact same record as the Los Angeles Angels.— Adam Kadourhe (@AdamKadourhe) June 26, 2018
At a payroll of $189 million, the Angels paid $4,616,366 for each of those 41 wins.
The A's? $2,019,623...less than half.
Interesting and kind of good is what we aspire to be around here.
As someone who was pushing "the A's might not be good but they won't be bad and they'll definitely be interesting" last winter, I am pleased to see they're interesting *and* kind of good. (Not great, but closer to the Mariners than you'd think.) pic.twitter.com/lcIRbKT2pZ— Mike Petriello (@mike_petriello) June 29, 2018
Considering how few players want to do the derby, I wouldn’t write this idea off.

BoMel is the realest skipper out there, no question.
Melvin on Pinder: "He probably left three or four home runs on the table here in this series. I told him he’s a stupid hitter."— Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) June 28, 2018
You don’t get to be the fifth-best team in the AL without little things like this!

Matt Chapman took BP, felt great, will play at Stockton tomorrow.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) July 1, 2018
I’ve been to AT&T a # of times & I can say this. It lacks the modern amenities but the Coliseum more than makes up for in it in the life and fun in the stands. From the fans to the hot dog guys there is 1000% more joy here. Capitalize on it @Athletics, don’t let capital ruin it pic.twitter.com/kTelOu0O8z— Thischarmingham (@Thischarminham) June 30, 2018
Wish I could say I wouldn’t wish that on anyone ...
imagine how funny it would be if the Mariners had a 2014 A's style collapse. imagine how insanely sad all the fans would be. lmao.— Duncan (@DunxMuro) July 1, 2018
