2015 MLB

In one month and one day (4/5/15) the 2015 regular season for Major League Baseball will begin. I’m not as excited as I was last year. I really loved the A’s team for the first half of 2014, before Billy Beane got greedy and thought trading away the future and favorites like Yoenis C├ęspedes would make the A’s better for the stretch run of 2014. It didn’t; in fact it made the team much worse. Then, in the off season, he got rid of much of what was left so we no longer have Norris, Brandon Moss, or Josh Donaldson. Hopefully 2015 isn’t a complete disaster for my A’s.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Such has been the A’s season. They had the best record in baseball for much of the season, but they have had nearly the worst record in baseball for the past 45 days or so. They seem to be able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in most of their recent contests.

But they still have hope on this final day of the season. A victory, or a loss by the Mariners, will get them a wild card spot. If they lose and the Mariners win then they will have a 163 game season before the playoffs begin, with or without them.

The only thing that is known is the A’s will not have home field advantage in any of these series unless they make it to the World Series.

Today would be a good day to begin a 13 game winning streak.

Let’s go A’s!

A little over a month ago I was on my way to Mexico and all was right with the MLB world. The A’s had the best record in baseball and looked like a lock for the division title and a playoff spot. Things have gone horribly wrong since then. The Angels have won the vast majority of their games in the second half and currently own the best record in the bigs. They are also headed to the post season while the A’s are barely hanging on to a wild card spot. Maybe the tides are due for another change?
