A's 2015 spring training
A roundup of all the A's news, notes, schedules, TV info, rosters, analysis, and everything else we have to offer about the 2015 Cactus League.
The Oakland A's were shutout by the San Francisco Giants in the second game of the Bay Bridge Series.
Spring Training is definitely not over for the Oakland Athletics. Picking up right where they left off after their 21-9-(2) record in the heat of Arizona, the A's kept the runs rolling right into the cool San Francisco night as they trounced the Giants tonight to the tune of 8-2, backed by two home runs and two triples.
After what has felt like an indeterminable Spring, the A's finally find themselves back in a big league ballpark, facing the San Francisco Giants no less; the team that got everything the A's wanted last season. Whether the A's will be settling any scores this season, especially early and without Josh Reddick and Coco Crisp, has yet to be determined.
The Rangers suffered through a lost season in 2014. Will they bounce back without Yu Darvish, or will they spend another year in the cellar?
With Zito starting today, the timing just does not support another appearance for Oakland during the Bay Bridge series. There's still hope yet, however.
Mostly good news coming out of Athletics camp, at least in terms of the opening day roster.
