This week, my 27 innings attending A's games in Oakland have not exactly been well spent. Counting Wednesday, Friday and today's games, the A's have been outscored 21 to 4, losing all three games painfully, by scores of 10-3, 7-1 and 4-0. And as much fun as it is to attend the games and root root root for the home team, the continued losing without opportunity to gain ground on the other teams is wearing on us.
It seems if it's not one thing, it's another with this team. On Wednesday, it was bad pitching from the starter, Yesterday, we saw 5 errors, including 4 from supersub Marco Scutaro, and today, the team couldn't hit worth a lick.
I don't know what it is going to take for this team to get out of its doldrums. A trade? Players returning from the DL? All I know is that we will be in our seats hoping something changes soon.
