Oakland A's at Seattle Mariners series preview: Do or die time for Oakland

The Oakland Athletics (19-26) visit the Seattle Mariners (26-17) for three games at Safeco Field, where the faint embers of Oakland's AL West chances can either be breathed to life or snuffed out. Trailing the Mariners by eight games in the AL West, the A's in their weakened state must do all they can to win at least one game out of the three in Seattle and avoid falling behind double...

Coco Crisp puts $10 million mansion with a wiffle ball field up for sale

Coco Crisp is a well-traveled MLB player, so it only makes sense that his house would be completely decked out. That way, Crisp never has to leave his property when he is actually home.But it is still impressive to see just how extravagant Crisp's Rancho Mirage, Calif. home really is, as MLS photos reveal the full scale of luxury now that Crisp put the $9.995 million house up for...

There have been an awful lot of players on the move in the A's system over the past couple of weeks. Prospects like Max Muncy, Ryon Healy, Jaycob Brugman, Tyler Marincov and Ryan Doolittle have all been moving on up, while #1 draft pick Richie Martin seems set to join Stockton on Monday, and it looks like pitcher Zach Neal could be returning to the A's to take Sonny Gray's spot in...

All The A’s Are Down And This Guy Is Gray

Yesterday, Sonny Gray hit the Disgraceful List with a combination of ineffectiveness and Grey calling him a preseason schmohawk.  My schmohawks:  Schwarber, Pollock, Gray, Tulo and Sano.  If I were Sano, I'd move into the giant bubble that Tulo is apparently living in to still be healthy.  Seriously, if you were placing odds in the preseason on which one of those would hit the...

Bad day gets worse for Athletics in 5-4 loss to Yankees

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) A day that began with ace Sonny Gray being placed on the disabled list didn't get much better for Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin. There was another shaky outing by an Oakland starting pitcher, a defense that committed its AL-leading 36th error and numerous missed opportunities at the plate. Michael Pineda won for the first time since his opening start...

WATCH: Umpire takes foul tip by Joc Pederson to the bad place

Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson has such brute strength that even his bunt attempts have the power to inflict maximum pain. Home plate umpire David Rackley learned that lesson the hard way on Sunday. Rackley was working behind the dish in the fifth inning of the series finale between the Dodgers and the Padres when he caught a rogue foul bunt attempt by Pederson right in the oysters...

Khris Davis injury could be devastating for A’s

Just when the A’s, who already had 12 players on the disabled list, thought things couldn’t get any worse, Josh Reddick broke his thumb sliding into second base on Thursday night. This left the A’s without their biggest trade piece, their number-three hitter and Gold Glove right fielder. However, things did get worse on Saturday, when Khris Davis left the game early, reportedly...

Manaea loses focus in A's 5-1 loss to Yankees

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Athletics rookie Sean Manaea is learning the hard way in his first season in the majors. This time, the left-hander's inability to keep his focus during a four-run fourth inning proved costly. Coming off his first big league win, Manaea pitched into the seventh inning and gave Oakland's bullpen a much-needed rest, but not much else went right for the A's in...

Rich Hill: Oakland Athletics most valuable starter?

If you predicted the Oakland Athletics would acquire the starting rotation’s ace in the winter, give yourself a rewarding pat on the back. In November, the A’s signed left-handed pitcher Rich Hill to a one-year contract. Hill, a player swapped around the league from six Major League Baseball cities, joined the the A’s rotation, consisting of a menagerie of 20-something-year...

Santiago Casilla was furious Bruce Bochy pulled him in 9th

San Francisco Giants closer Santiago Casilla has blown three saves already this season, and manager Bruce Bochy was not about to give him a chance to blow a fourth on Thursday night. When Casilla got himself into another 9th-inning jam, Bochy pulled him. You can imagine how the right-hander felt about it.

How will Josh Reddick save the Oakland Athletics?

While the glistening, blue water of the Bay Area warms the locals hearts, the Oakland Athletics are frustrating fans with their recent cold streak.
