Oakland A’s recall Daniel Gossett, option Michael Brady to Triple-A Nashville

The Oakland A’s recalled starting pitcher Daniel Gossett, the team announced Wednesday. To make room on the 25-man roster, reliever Michael Brady was optioned back to Triple-A Nashville. Gossett made 10 starts in his first stint in Oakland this year, beginning with his MLB debut in June. His overall numbers were shaky as he took his share of lumps, but he did squeeze out quality starts in half his outings (7 innings twice) while striking out nearly three batters per walk. He often got hit...

The A’s starter hopes to make his next start. A’s starter Paul Blackburn left in the fifth inning of his start against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday after being struck by a line drive. Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area gave us some promising news, indicating that Blackburn didn’t break any bones in his hand or wrist. It’s unclear if Blackburn will make his next start. For a team this far out of the race, there’s not a lot of reason to press a pitcher into action, particularly a...

Athletics Nation Meetup

Time to crawl out from behind your screens and into the glorious Coliseum The season sucked, the team is going nowhere, but we’re still sticking it out, so we might as well have a good time doing it. If you have a bad season, it helps to spend it hanging out with good people. Thus, by (somewhat) popular demand, we’re doing another meetup! It’s like a game thread, but real life!!! It was suggested by (relatively) many people to do the meetup on September 9th, which is the doubleheader...

It almost sounds like an Arlo Guthrie song...

Prospect Watch: Jean Ruiz had a solid night and Laz hit two triples!ICYMI: Boog hits first MLB homerun as A’s lose in Baltimore... Our Boog gets to meet Baltimore’s Boog today at the elder Boog’s BBQ. They might even FaceTime the LLWS Boog... How did the A’s fare in free agency last winter? Jed Lowrie homered last night too.

How did Oakland A’s fare in free agency last winter?

The Oakland A’s were active in free agency last winter, signing a pile of short-term stopgaps in a thrift shop spending spree. Did they pick the right guys? Let’s look back and find out! The first player to consider is the big fish who got away: Edwin Encarnacion. Oakland made a legitimate push to sign the top-notch hitter, offering two years at over $20 million per (plus the loss of the draft pick that became speedy SS Kevin Merrell), but he ended up in Cleveland. Encarnacion is having...

Oakland A’s: Are the recent bullpen additions worthwhile?

It’s late August. Clearly, the 54-70 Oakland A’s aren’t an October ball club. Don’t expect this to change anytime soon, given Oakland’s current roster—something A’s management continues to change up, in accordance with their endless, uphill rebuilding process. The A’s’ acquisition of two new pitchers this past week – Chris Hatcher from the Los Angeles Dodgers, and Sam Moll from the Colorado Rockies – is but another attempt by Oakland to bolster their work-in-progress...

Game 125: A’s Lose but Boog Gets First MLB Homerun!

Starting pitcher Chris Smith is STILL trying to get his first career win as a starter. His only win was in 2008 as a reliever. His career is one of true grit. Having spent most of his days in the minors and a short hiatus in the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, he returned to major league baseball in 2014 when the Padres signed him to a minor league contract. In 2016 he did the same with the Athletics. In 2017, at age 36, Smith became the oldest player to make...
