Not a great few days

“How was your weekend”? is a familiar question to be asked on a Monday.

“Not great”, would be the likely answer from A’s fans.

Losing a double-header on Saturday against the Houston Astros, with Marcus Semien having to sit out the second game with an injury, may have left some thinking it couldn’t get much worse.

If so, they were wrong.

News broke on Sunday of a positive COVID-19 test among the A’s group (there’s no confirmation yet as to whether it was a player or staff member). The final game of the series against the Astros was postponed and we now have to wait for further results from the round of testing undertaken yesterday.

I’ve published a video on our YouTube channel about the potential implications.
