Dear Cincinnati Reds,

We heard you like former aces who are now broken and banished to the bullpen...

I'm glad I got to see Felix pitch in 2014. It was a hell of a year and as much as I love Kluber, Felix probably would have been the AL Cy Young that year if his worst start of the year hadn't been right when the votes needed to go in.

Four game sweep of Houston! Díaz saves every game, Ramírez did fine in his start with five scoreless, and Healy got a clutch homer to tie it in the ninth. Neat!

Do you think once Díaz notches his 50th save they’re gonna do the haircut right there on the mound? God I hope it happens at home.

We six games at home this week, so it's certainly possible!

Though that would mean he saved 5 of the next 9 games, which is not where we want his workload to be.

Apparently he's already at 46, but still 4 of the next 9 games is not what we want from him.

They were going to rest him tonight but apparently he called the dugout from the bullpen after Mitch's double and said he wanted to close it out.

Yep, I read that and Healy's quoted as saying "that gave me more goosebumps than my homer," which is amazing.

Think of it this way, though. The more one-run games we lose and one-run games the A's win, the more the narrative about the A's will shift to them "just being lucky" and away from us!

No, you see, the Mariners are just getting lucky because the Mariners are always bad. The A's are a good team because...

Well, we just lost our new ace in the first inning of a crucial game against a division rival.

Depending on what happens to Paxton, that might be the end of the season for us.

I thought we had some nice momentum after sweeping the Astros, but apparently after crushing Verlander and Cole, we just couldn't figure out Mike Fiers.

RIP Mariners.

The only piece of hope I can hold onto is the age-old SAS wisdom that "momentum doesn't exist". It certainly didn't carry over after the Mariners swept the Astros! Maybe the same thing will happen to the A's. You know, sometime before the season ends :smith:
