The A’s lost another heart breaking 1 run game. Their luck in those games has been jaw droppingly bad. In fact there is no way it can continue.

All is not what it appears to be on Episode 933 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

The Royals and A’s opened the post season with one of the wildest and craziest and for Oakland fans heartbreaking game in recent years.

Right after the game, I walked out of The Dutch Goose in Menlo Park and recorded my thoughts and emotions. Some negative but a lot more positive.

 It is a “Break your heart” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Who Owns October In MLB Playoffs 2014? (#WOO) Tally Updated For AL Wild Card Game

CHARLIE RIEDEL/AP

CHARLIE RIEDEL/AP

 

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)
And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

For a full explanation, click HERE

From September 30th’s game:

Receiving 1 WOO

Eric Hosmer reached base 5 times, scoring twice including a dramatic 12th inning triple in the Royals wild come from behind 9-8 victory against Oakland.

Brandon Finnegan came out of the bullpen in extra innings and gave the Royals 2 1/3 innings, striking out 3 and allowing just 1 run. He would not get the win, but he helped set up 9-8 win against the A’s.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

 Brandon Moss homered twice and set an Oakland post season record of 5 runs batted in in the A’s heart breaking 9-8 loss in Kansas City.

It is the Post Season!!!! I make my picks for the playoffs.

Meanwhile the Royals or A’s will justify a big trade with a win. Will it be Jon Lester or James Shields who will vindicate their General Manager.

And why should Fox want a Dodgers – A’s World Series?

All that and more on this post season kick off episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

A positively bonkers eve to the final (scheduled) regular season game leaves more questions than answers.

Tomorrow could be even crazier and realistic scenarios have as many as three additional games being played on Monday.

Things are getting odd and I’m recording a podcast in my garage.

Waiting for my shuttle at the Bob Hope Burbank Airport, I reflect on a wild night of baseball.

The Diamondbacks made a move they should have done in the spring (and got revenge for 1988.)

The Royals showed us something we hadn’t seen since 1985.

And the Red Sox and Yankees do something that hasn’t happened since the creation of the Wild Card.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are a scary team heading into the post season. Not because of momentum (which is meaningless, especially with a one game playoff) but because of which players are healthy, strong and playing at a high level.

It is a raise the Jolly Roger episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Baseball can adapt not only to the digital age but learn the lessons that the movie industry eventually learned about home video.

Was the Jon Lester trade a mistake?

Do they desperately need Yoenis Cespedes?

Or would they be in worse shape relying on a slumping Sonny Gray or Scott Kazmir at this point?

And what does this have to do with the beef stroganoff recipe by comedian Ritch Duncan?

It all makes sense (or maybe it doesn’t) in this episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Dan Otero is piling up wins at an alarming rate. So much so that I wonder out loud again if anyone could ever catch Jack Chesbro’s 41 win season if they did so as a middle reliever.

The Bullet Version Of Monday’s MLB Games + Craig Kimbrel Is Filthy!

Season high 7 game winning streak - including 3 straight walk off hits at Nats Park.  They hold a 6 game lead over 2nd place Atlanta, and the Nationals haven't even hit full stride with several key players not maximizing on their talent level.  With a weaker NL East schedule down the stretch, they just may hold home field advantage by season's end in the National League.

Erik Kratz smacked 2 HRs and now has 23 HRs in just 472 AB.  Thats a HR for every 20.52 AB or would equal about 29 Bolts in a 600 AB campaign.  The guy is 34 so that is not likely to happen… but smart move on KC’s part to bring him in.  Beats the alternative for what they had.

Washington is starting to heat up, and if you play them into late and extra innings, any of their hitters can beat you right now.  This does not bode well for Atlanta.

Everybody just back off of Trevor Rosenthal, as all young relievers go through this.  Besides what is a season if the Cardinals didn’t changeup their Closer at least once…

Everyone also needs to take a chill pill on the A’s missing Yoenis Cespedes so much it has destroyed the unity of the offense.  Teams go through stretches where they don’t play well.  It is just 17 games of a sample size so far. Read the rest of this entry

The only people on the planet Earth who could not watch the A’s game today were fans near Oakland. Does that make sense? Of course not. Neither do blackout rules.

Is Fox Sports still not willing to talk about “dead guys” because of a 1990’s mentality? Time to break that.

Baseball takes place in the past, present and future all at the same time. That sentence makes sense to me.

Does this sound like a day to put on an evergreen podcast?

American soccer fans are hoping the US Team advances to the next round of the World Cup.

But would the rest of the world look at an American World Cup the way that Indians or Cubs fans would see another Marlins World Series?

And would you trade a chance to see your team win the World Series for a chance to see America win the World Cup?
