Ay Caramba! A’s Disappoint All Cultures

Today was Fiesta Day at the O.co Coliseum, and the Athletics celebrated by giving the Texas Rangers a going-away party. The visitors completed their sweep, giving A’s fans a taste of pennant baseball for the last six weeks of the season. It won’t be much fun for us, the piñata in this play, as teams with something to play for are going to beat us like a tambourine. But this weekend’s beatings were made somehow worse by sad promotions — like Friday’s Italian Heritage Day, which featured a warmed-over Rat Pack trio who drew well-earned boos every time they appeared, taking some of the heat off the A’s terrible defense.
