  1. A's were baseball's best team in April

    David Schoenfield

    I hope the women and children in Texas didn't witness the sweep the A's put on the Rangers because I think the A's just committed three counts of felony sports-slaughter. After beating Yu Darvish 4-0 on Monday and the red-hot Martin Perez 9-3 on Tues...

  4. Time to respect Colon and the A's

    David Schoenfield

    The Oakland Athletics have a better record than the Detroit Tigers, yet while the Tigers have six All-Stars, the only All-Star for the A's so far is a fat, 40-year-old pitcher who went 32-40 with a 4.38 ERA from 2006 to 2012 and throws almost nothing...

  5. A's looking like best team in the AL West

    David Schoenfield

    Jesse Chavez is essentially the 25th man on the Oakland A's roster. He started the year in Triple-A, got called up, got sent down, got called back up and is working as the low-leverage guy out of the bullpen. Before Thursday, he hadn't pitche...

  8. Baseball is awesome: A's cap great day

    David Schoenfield

    More baseball! On a day that featured a quadruple-header of baseball playoff action, a game in which a starting pitcher who didn't win a game all season gets a W, a game with a demoted former two-time Cy Young winner coming out of the bullpen for ...

  9. Anderson, Crisp rescue A's with two gems

    David Schoenfield

    The Oakland A's didn't really know what to expect from Brett Anderson, who hadn't pitched in 20 days since suffering an oblique strain. But here's the one thing about Anderson: He can roll out of bed and throw the ball over the plate. He returned ...

  10. Early postseason theme: Sloppy play

    David Schoenfield

    David Schoenfield

    I don't yet know if 2012 will be considered a baseball season to remember. We tend to appreciate the great teams and memorable moments -- last year's dramatic final day of the regular season or the World Series Game 6 for the ages -- more than the be...
