Catching up

One of the factors we have to deal with whilst following MLB from the UK is that the time difference can get the better of you for a few days.

If you can’t watch the game live in the early hours, nor catch up on it during the day, it can be difficult to keep up with all the action before the next game comes along.

It’s been like that for me over the past few days, but it’s been fun catching up this morning.

When the revised 2020 schedule was announced, we all pondered whether the A’s playing 12 of our first 16 games at home was a good thing or not?

Although it gave the A’s a chance to get off to a great start, it also put pressure on them to make the home games count whilst not fully up to speed.

Will KD Khrush Again?

One of the key questions coming into the season for the A’s was whether Khris Davis would return to form after a difficult 2019 season.

Whilst other hitters, both with the A’s and across the Majors, have started very slowly, KD’s struggles have been viewed in the context of a slugger who may be on the way down.

Game 8: A big win

It’s easy to overreact to wins and losses in a 60-game season; however the manner of the A’s 3-2 victory on Saturday makes it feel important.
