    I hate them for the choices they made and the actions they took.

    Has nothing to do with their abilities.

    For the nail file/sandpaper thing?

    Ambivalent. The mlb umps don't even enforce those rules anymore. The pitchers aren't even hiding the gunk on their hats, gloves, or belts now.

    MLB hitters actually prefer pitchers being able to use grips to have better control.

    What does that have to do with a systemic, sophisticated team-based cheating scandal that lasted many years?

    7 in a row for the A's.

    They stayed classy and didn't even plunk any of the Houston Asterisks last night.

    Of course, Correa plunked himself in the dick, so we had that going for us.

    Back when men were and baseball was still a man's game , hitters knew how to get out of the way . Nolan Ryan would have knocked every member of the Oakland team down and then dared them to charge the mound .

    Why would he have?

    Oakland didn't cheat to win a world series.


    Btw, we didn't plunk ANY Astros.

    They hit us 5 times. That pitcher hit Laureano 2 times in two games.

    Ask yourself what would have happened if the A's had hit the Astros 5 times in a series?

    Joe Kelley got an 8 game suspension and he didn't even actually hit an Astro.

    Why are there two sets of rules, one for the Astros, and one for everyone else???

    Just came back from 5 behind to beat the Giants in our first game of interleague play with our bridge series rivals.

    First time we've come from 5 back to win since 1952.

    So what happens when one team actually plays 1/2 of the 60 games and one division only plays 3/4?

    It won't matter because the A's are gonna have the best w/l percentage!

    Really? You're going with that? Oakland was known as being a steroids club with McGwire and Canseco among others in '89.
