    In theory it should allow you to get more spin on the ball thus making the pitches move more but its not going to cause any funky movement.

    • So... The Athletics and the Oakland-Alameda County Authority (see: city of Oakland) are in a public pissing match over the A's stay in Oakland from here on out.

      A's struck first in public arena, stating the Coliseum Authority is not operating in good faith.

      Today the Coliseum Authority shot back stating the A's owe five years of back rent--over $5 million.

      The Athletics promptly responded by calling the Coliseum Authority liars

      This is now scorched earth. I think the A's could actually end up playing in a temporary stadium next season.

      Oldie but a goodie.

        EDIT: Oh yeah... And this is weeks after the mayor of Oakland told a bold-faced lie, stating the prince of Dubai wants to build a stadium for the A's.

          Because somewhere deep down on a subconscious level we enjoy it.

            Career game high in strikeouts. Career low in innings pitched.

              • Masterson should have taken that extension when he had the chance. Dude is losing leverage and value with every subpar start this far.

                  Every pitcher asked about this says it is used all the time and it's not a big deal. Which was news to me. MLB basically told the Yankees just be more discreet about it. I'm guessing Pineda servers his suspension and this rule gets changed over the offseason.

                    Honestly I don't care too much... but when you are just THAT stupid it's your own damn fault. I mean come on it was clear that he did it a week ago and now he comes back and does it again? It's just stupidity at that point.

                      Yup, I don't get why he just didn't put a glob of it in his glove? There has to be a reason why.

                        I do find it slightly humorous that he had a less than ideal first inning without it so then he came back in the second with it in a really obvious spot.

                        • Always nice to take 3 out of 4 against the Cards.

                            The funniest was the ref wiping it off, looking at it and throwing him out that instant. Such a guilty dumbass.

                              Not as nice taking 4 out of 7 in the NLCS. Yes, it was 8 years ago, and I prolly need to get over it but oh well.

                                You should be over considering your success but as that's the last playoff game for me I'm not yet to be over it.
