I like that melvin is giving cespedes the night off.

I don't like that he has puta instead of freiman.  I get the desire to have another lefty, but I'd still play calapso at 2nd,and frieman at 1st

I guess he's going all defense.  Why is it good that Cespedes is not playing?

Twins just took 3 out of four against the Mariners, and the Mariners are on a 3 game losing streak. If the A's can make Felix throw a lot of pitches, their bullpen might be vulnerable. The M's used up most of their bullpen last night trying to make up for pushing Felix back a day to face Oakland.

Cespedes has really been struggling, and hitting against arguably the best pitcher in baseball is usually not a good way to get out of a slump.    Plus they've been playing 2 straight weeks without a break.  Give him a rest, let him get a little refreshed, and go kill it the last 2 games before the break.  Plus he can hit for Puta later in the game.

stephen vogt is a machine.

People have been talking about donaldson's contract, but if vogt keeps this up, he'll be due a large pay raise.   He's also giving Beane some flexibility to make a trade for a MIF, using reddick as bait.

I hate that I can't watch any of the games against Seattle on MLB.tv. At least with Extra Innings I was able to watch them, even if stuck with Seattle announcers.

2-0 A's already! I'd love to win this game given that the M's pushed Felix's start back to face Oakland. Let's make it cost them 2 games.

Mariners tie it up. We likely won't be scoring again off Felix, so let's run up his pitch count and hope to dig into the bullpen.

I have never been able to figure out why Hernandez doesn't get hit all over the yard, his stuff just doesn't look that great. He also strikes me as a complete A-hole, nothing says I deserve a punch in the face like the a pube goatee, sideways hat and neck tattoo.

Why would they pitch to Cano there? Is Melvin losing it?

Show of hands....how many thought it was a good decision to pitch to Cano with 1B open? I was screaming before that first pitch to please walk him.

unfortunately the a's are swinging the bat like they're lost, and felix' pitch count is such that he can go all 9 and never touch their bp.

hopefully moss and donaldson come through in the 8th

That 5 pitch 7th didn't help our chances of getting get Felix out of there.
