Sure some of the moves Boone has made make you shake your head but I do not think it matters who the manager is. It all comes down to pitching. We have not had a solid rotation really since the early 2000s give or take a year (2009). We basically have a bunch of 5 inning pitchers. Every year by this time the bullpen gets over used. Pitching wins period. BTW yeah pitching Cole last night hurt but who is he supposed to use? You can't pitch the same guys every day. Plus most of the guys today get babied. Chapman does not pitch for a week, comes into a game and throws 30 pitches because he is stale and now he is unavailable next game. Thing is we were all spoiled by Mo. Not only was he consisitently great but very efficient. How many 9/10 pitch innings did he have.




If you make the playoffs you can get by with five inning starters.. Look at the Astro's last year, they used their extra starters to carry them to the Championship, we could do the same thing, but if we keep losing games we should win we might not make it ???




I think we'll make it because the Astros and A's and Mariners are all beating up on each other for the final wildcard spot...to be honest, I think the A's have a better chance of winning their division, than they have of catching the Yankees. If that should happen, and the Yankees finish the season with the 2nd best record (after the Sox), the Yankees would play the Astros at Yankee Stadium, for that 1 game wildcard playoff...a repeat of 2015.




I must be missing something, I don't see the A's winning that division, the Astros are just too good, they have the best starters, and that's what wins championships in the end...




What you're missing is the A's incredible run, while the Astros are a BAD home team...this is going to bite them in the end...also the A's have a much easier schedule for the rest of the season than the Astros have...and the A's are only 2 games behind the Astros at the moment.

I'll have to be honest, I haven't paid a lot of attention to the "AL West, but the A's are playing really good ball right now.. I also didn't see that the A's just swept the Astros in Houston, that's making a move when they have to...


One thing I've noticed through the years, once you win a WS like the Astros did last year it doesn't seem so important to win it again the next year, the rush is over, you been there and done that, if it comes back that's great... I also think they have the idea, we're the World Champs and it's easy to repeat, well it isn't and it might show that's the reason they are not playing with the desire they did last year...


The American League has some really good teams in it this year, maybe some of the best teams in years, or is it the bottom end are just the worst in  years ?? What's too bad is one or two teams couldn't be playing in the AL Central ???

And once again against Tampa Boone shows how little he understands using a bullpen.  He gets Robertson up in the 7th.  Gets him warmed up in case Happ runs into trouble.  No problem there.  But then he sits him doiwn and uses Betances in the 8th, effectively burning 2 relievers.  Once he got Robertson up in the 7th he should have used him in the 8th.

Cashman didn't want an independent-thinking manager; he wanted someone who'd be onboard with their new brand of analytics. Not sure how one could argue Boone would make a "good" manager, when he never managed a game before this season. I am sure Boone has a great deal of baseball smart, having grown up around the game. But managing, like any skill, has to be honed. It's silly to think a guy could step onto the biggest stage and be a "good" manager. If the team were playing lights out, it would be a non-issue. But we are seeing now, Boone lacks the acumen and experience to re-right a ship off course.
