We’re back with A’s Week in Twitter, where we round up the best of the Oakland Athletics Twitterverse. From preparing for a Wild Card game to Ramon Laureano’s continual excellence, scroll to see what made the cut!
Seeking input for the Top 10 moments of this A’s season. Looking to add to a list that includes Manaea’s no-hitter, Laureano’s throw, Olson’s walk-off homer against the Astros, and the crazy comeback shenanigans in Texas, among others.— Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) September 6, 2018
We’ll just leave this here.
.@JLucroy20 has many pieces of art and photos on his wall. There’s one piece he’s extremely proud of:— Oakland Athletics ⚾️ (@Athletics) September 7, 2018
A screenshot from a 2016 Cosmopolitan article that claimed he was in the top 30 hottest players in @MLB history. pic.twitter.com/4enc89Tpb6
We’re lucky to have such #savage writers on the A’s beat.
Didn’t realize so many fans had their master’s in bullpen management. What a cool online program that must be.— Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) September 5, 2018
At least they’re in on the joke (horror)?
Watching @TheKylerMurray play and wishing this is what the uniforms looked like. pic.twitter.com/X0HfQfOmul— Oakland Athletics ⚾️ (@Athletics) September 8, 2018
Weird times we live in.
tfw you're watching Kyler Murray shred UCLA and realize you might be able to see him play in the Midwest League in the not too distant future pic.twitter.com/tckIViDQK0— x (@PleaseTalkToMe1) September 9, 2018
Still not recovered from the last one TBH.
not sure I'm ready for the stress of a Wild Card game— Tim Eckert-Fong (@teckertfong) September 9, 2018
What a stat.
30 games over .500 for the first time since the end of 2013 #HechoEnOakland pic.twitter.com/QWhyfy3qOV— Oakland Athletics ⚾️ (@Athletics) September 9, 2018
We were all thinking it.
Khris Davis better— Brandon (@Scout5231) September 10, 2018
He can stay.
Ramon Laureano has played 29 MLB games. He already has:— Alex Hall (@AlexHallAN) September 8, 2018
- 2 multi-homer games
- 5 outfield assists
- 4 stolen bases without being caught
- A .391 OBP
There is nothing this guy can't do.
Would love to see a breakdown of when those errors occurred.
Matt Chapman: 27 DRS— Jonah (@JshiffyDFS) September 5, 2018
Miguel Andújar: -24 DRS
Yankees fans are the worst. https://t.co/W7fO9fTFfS
Can the A’s extend him before he finds out?
Just got done with a longer interview with Matt Chapman for a thing that’ll come out later. Great kid, good talk, and one huge takeaway: he has no idea how good he is. I mean that literally — I felt like the first person who ever complimented him.— Dieter Kurtenbach (@dkurtenbach) September 8, 2018
There will be dingers.

Just how we imagined the A’s would get on Sunday Night Baseball.
Sunday Night Baseball mentioning that Alex Cora said the Red Sox looked at how the A’s hit Dallas Keuchel for an idea of how to play him— Jeremy F. Koo (@jfkooAN) September 10, 2018
This was so close.
I actually meant that the A's will win 86 games ***by September 8th*** https://t.co/wkAi49Vpil— Duncan (@DunxMuro) September 9, 2018
Farewell to the minor league season.
The Ports' season comes to an end, thus closing the book on what was a productive A's minor league season, even with the injuries. Congrats to Rick Magnante on a fabulous season. https://t.co/rTNPy7CEX9— Melissa Lockard (@melissalockard) September 10, 2018
So you’re telling me those aren’t the real Rickey, Eck, and Rollie? #wow
Enjoyed bonding with my A's buddies at the @athletics Inaugural HOF Induction. #rootedinoakland pic.twitter.com/fC1sIbYpop— Dennis Eckersley (@Eck43) September 6, 2018
And because our love for Sean Doolittle is strong no matter what uniform he wears, had to include this instant meme.
