We’re back with A’s Week in Twitter, where we round up the best of the Oakland Athletics Twitterverse. From Matt Chapman remaining extremely good, to Khris Davis proving the same, scroll to see what made the cut!
Good morning! Matt Chapman is the best third baseman in baseball! pic.twitter.com/rYgTNVkSGZ— Duncan (@DunxMuro) August 27, 2018
This is how we all look at Chappy.
get yourself someone that looks at you the way Oly looks at Chappy #Athletics pic.twitter.com/nLUR4GXkBs— paulina (@linatelo) August 28, 2018
So you’re telling me Matt Chapman is the first and second-best defender in the league?

Any level of uniform filth less than this is unacceptable from now-on.

At least he’s one player we don’t have to worry about extending.
Stephen Piscotty really having a strong bounce back season. Also, he's 27 and under team control for the next five years.— Martin Gallegos (@MartinJGallegos) September 2, 2018
Moneyball 2.0: Sharp and Delightful
I think the A’s should have to wear these unis all through the playoffs because they are sharp and delightful— Meg Rowley (@megrowler) September 1, 2018
This is when you know he’s reached a level of good we haven’t seen in a long time.
Matt Chapman does so many ridiculous things on defense that i'm finding myself less and less impressed.— Kyle Madson (@KyleAMadson) August 29, 2018
Khris Davis is the first player to have 40 HR, 100 RBI in 3 straight seasons since Ryan Howard did it 4 straight ('06-'09). pic.twitter.com/TYWGmt8B7Z— MLB Stat of the Day (@MLBStatoftheDay) September 2, 2018
KD gets pricier with every tweet like this.
They just showed Khris Davis’ HR distribution for the season.— Carmichael Dave (@CarmichaelDave) September 2, 2018
12 to left, 13 to center, FIFTEEN to right.
He’s a righty.
I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that before.
Most underrated player in baseball
With his next home run, Khris Davis will tie Mark McGwire for the most homers in Oakland history in a three-year span. Will it be today? The @Athletics take on the @Twins at 5:10 p.m.— Sporting Green (@SportingGreenSF) August 24, 2018

Life comes at you fast.
I think it's safe to say Khris Davis has passed Chris Davis as THE "(X)hris Davis" pic.twitter.com/2AXrVZVWlM— Cespedes Family BBQ (@CespedesBBQ) September 2, 2018
Even Hank Aaron never did it.
In MLB history, there have been 25 hitters who have reached 40 HR in three straight seasons. Here's the full list, with Khris Davis joining the club last night. pic.twitter.com/ufXtUC9EWp— Alex Hall (@AlexHallAN) September 2, 2018
Reminder: trying something one time doesn’t mean it’s a absolute total failure or a complete success. A team with as many rotation injuries as the A’s have is not crazy to try some different things and one game isn’t even a small sample size. It’s: Just. One. Game.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) September 2, 2018
Extremely quality, niche content.
At two levels this year, Ramon Laureano has 17 assists in 687 defensive innings. For some perspective, Kobe Bryant had 17 assists in his last two seasons combined.— Joe Sheehan (@joe_sheehan) August 29, 2018
Let’s just hope we get to see that in an outfield...

You know you’re good when a teammate whips out his phone to tweet mid-game.

5 years from now when they come out with Moneyball 2, I wanna find out if it was Billy Beane the whole time talking smack to Smash Mouth on the Athletics twitter account.— UtahDroneGuy (@UtahDroneGuy) August 31, 2018
Thoughts on what might go in this building?
Well this is newsworthy: it looks like the Oakland A's are in the process of purchasing 10 Clay Street, basically the closest building to Howard Terminal. pic.twitter.com/6fvxFtrMeY— Eastshore Empire (@EastshoreEmpire) September 1, 2018
