Prey on the Weak

Friday, August 8, 2008  |  by 

Remember that kid in public school who got tormented to no end? As an innocent bystander, you wanted to jump in and help but you didn’t want to get pummeled yourself - so you joined the bully and tormented that kid until eventually they stopped showing up for school.

That’s what it must be for the Oakland A’s right now.

They have lost 10 straight, and 20 of the last 22 since the All-Star break. That’s fuckin’ brutal - like Barbara Streisand brutal. Before the break the Oakland A’s were still in contention in the AL West, but now they don’t have a chance in hell.

Thank the Blue Jays for preying on the weak; the bluebirds swept the A’s four straight with 2 come-from-behind wins. Talk about kicking a team when it’s down, eh? But the Jays better get their wins in while they’re easy to come by; starting next Friday it’s 6 with the Yankees, 6 with the Red Sox, and 3 with the Rays. That is a make-or-break 2 weeks for the Blue Jays - and same goes for the Yanks, Sawks, and Rays too. But with Vernon back in the lineup next week, I will feel a little more confident in the offense for the time being.
