Hall of Fame Candidate Tim Hudson’s Pair of Late Season Undefeated Streaks That Played Key Roles in Securing the 2000 and 2002 AL West Division Titles for the Oakland Athletics

+

I enjoyed reading this article, it brought back memories from the 2000 & 2002 runs. Tim Hudson is a lot stronger Hall of Fame candidate than people realize. It’s a bummer the ballot is still so crowded though. I’d vote for Huddy in a heartbeat

Who Framed Shooty Babitt

Shooty Babitt's Wikipedia page is full of inaccuracies but the most interesting (clever?) thing in it is a line about him starring in the animated feature Who Framed Shooty Babitt. The reference link literally goes to the IMDb page for Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Oakland native and lifelong A's fan Matt Vasgersian is taking over play-by-play duties for Angels broadcasts this year on Bally Sports West. A missed opportunity for the Athletics?

Interesting article comparing Tim Hudson to recent Hall of Fame inductees & other prominent pitchers from his era

Came across this article which compares Tim Hudson to Mark Buehrle, Mike Mussina, CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte & few others in a variety of categories. I’ll be interested to see how Huddy does in Hall of Fame voting. I doubt he’ll come close to election on the first ballot but I think he belongs in the Hall.

Ramon 6 game suspension. Cintron 20 game suspension. Also, this quote: Laureano said, catcher Dustin Garneau, who tackled Laureano before he reached Cintron, "was protecting me 100% the whole time. I really feel the respect. He's one of the best teammates I've ever had. He protected me. We were down on the pile. He said to me, 'You good?' I said, 'Thank you, thank you.' He said, 'Don't worry.'
