Callaspo Sogard Parrino might be the worst 7-8-9 in baseball.  Presumably one of them is DH-ing also.  Why?

Why no Donaldson in cleanup?  Why no Soto if Norris has a bad back?

Kazmir pitches a perfect game and we win on 4 walks in the 9th.

Not looking good so far.  But hey, at least Moss' father will be joining the team tomorrow.

We can title this the one where the A's try to score a run. They probably score today but, give up 10 runs and lose 10-5.

The wheels have simply fallen off too many guys at the same time. Including Kaz.

Well, we didn't have to wait as long today.  I can't say I am impressed with the Angels sweep, but they took care of business and did not beat themselves.

Because they have given up on the division and setting themselves to just try to hang onto the wild card position.

So we have what, maybe a 15% chance of making the playoffs now?  Is there any chance to snap out of this and have a decent post season?

15%. More like 70%.

This is nothing short of a disaster.

Kazmir had a heroic effort against the Mets a couple of weeks ago, but I would think most of those who have seen his last two starts understands he is done for this season.  Dead arm or whatever it is, he cannot pitch.

Weird.  What really happened is Kazmir walked 4 in the 2nd and took an early shower.

I'm going to take an early shower too.  Along with Melvin.

I don't think I have ever seen a team give up so thoroughly. No heart. Did you see Donaldson's quote after last night? Something to the effect of not knowing whether the team can snap out of the funk.

Kazmir has nothing.
Must be missing Cespedes' clubhouse humor too much to throw strikes today.
