A's the World Turns

The Tigers were swept by the Twins.
It's ok, people, it's only May.

On Wednesday night the Yu Darvish Tour continued as Darvish beat the Oakland A's 4-1.
Darvish's line for the night: 7 2/3 innings, 4 hits, 1 run, 2 walks and 7 Ks.
Adrian Beltre had a 2-run homer.

The Athletics rebounded, today, and beat the Rangers 5-4.
Brandon McCarthy had a bit of a rough outing, giving up 8 hits, 4 runs and being the subject of a controversial call.
The score was tied 3-3 in the 6th inning when McCarthy played a pop-up bunt by Elvis Andrus and fired to third base to get the runner for, what he thought would be, a double play.
Nope. The home plate ump ruled that McCarthy had trapped the ball.
A's skipper Bob Melvin came out to argue and was ejected.
Kila Ka'aihue drove in the game-winning run in the 10th inning.

Oakland put Brandon Inge on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin. The move was retroactive to Sunday..
Inge will be back just in time to join Manny Ramirez who will return to the A's on May 30th - ManRam's 40th birthday - after serving his 50-game suspension for violating baseball's performance-enhancing drug policy.

In other A's news, only two remaining MLB teams continue to play in craphole stadiums - Tampa Bay and Oakland..
The Athletics are itchin' to play in new digs, but their jerk-off neighbours are putting the kibosh on their aspirations..
The San Francisco Giants don't want the A's to build a new facility on their preferred site - about 40 miles south of Oakland in San Jose - which is part of the Giants' territory..
Oakland A's owner Lew Wolff, a California real estate developer, wants to keep the team in the Bay area..
