We’re back with A’s Week in Twitter, where we round up the best of the Oakland Athletics Twitterverse. From launch angle to Jesse Chavez’s favorite teams, scroll to see what made the cut!
Your skipper could never.
Clarification: I had a note about Bob Melvin’s ejection being his 19th. It was his 19th ejection with Oakland and 40th in his career - Bob wants full credit for all of those.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) September 16, 2018
Someone get this guy one of Josh Reddick’s spidey shirts.

For real though.
Sure you did.
Everybody who thought 7 months ago that the #Athletics would win 90 games, raise your hands.— John Hickey (@JHickey3) September 15, 2018
Love to see it.
hm that's funny, the A's looks like we climbed up the mountain and then just... stayed at the top! pic.twitter.com/fI59MhOHeH— Megan Greenwell (@megreenwell) September 10, 2018
You saw him here first, folks!
I know Pat Venditte has been around for a while now, but the fact that he’s a big league pitcher who can throw with both arms will always be complete insanity— Cespedes Family BBQ (@CespedesBBQ) September 17, 2018
Ramon Laureano is just ridiculous.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) September 12, 2018
Sonny Gray helping out his former team. Gives up three in the third to Minnesota. If A's hold on and Yanks lose ... this is getting interesting.— Julian McWilliams (@JulianMack105) September 12, 2018
Very #here for the annoying of Astros fans.
Ok, I’m getting tired of the Oakland Athletics.— Astros Rants (@AstrosRants) September 13, 2018
They never lose.
They’re getting fucking annoying.
This seems ... extremely good.

Food for thought for @Athletics if they play in wild-card game. Put simply: Home field is not worth expending much energy to get. In 6 years of wild-card games, road teams have won 7 of 12 (4-2 in NL, 3-3 in AL). Go all out to get division, not for home field in wild-card game.— Steve Kroner (@SteveKronerSF) September 16, 2018
