Seriously, the A’s have lost just everything since the All-Star break except their gloves, and really why bring them when the pitchers are busy walking the ballpark? We went from hopeful to hopeless in the time it takes Bobby Crosby to trudge back to the dugout after another strikeout. Any solutions? You bet. Fire the manager. And the hitting coach. And the base coaches. This team has rolled over and died now two years running. Remember when the A’s were the team to fear when the calendar turned to June? Now the league is licking their chops and ready to lay another two or three L’s on the boys in green from now til October. Time to start beating the drums like we’re the American League East and the A’s are, um, the A’s starting rotation.
