Rockies +135
A's -145

Bassitt is getting lots of respect from Vegas. Or possibly it's the A's who have the 2nd best MLB record going back to May 23.

Colorado Rockies @ Oakland A's lineup discussion

Lots of power in tonight's lineup.  Solid defense in Center and Right to back up Bassitt who is spot relieving for Sonny Gray tonight.  Reports are that Gray has the flu.


I didn't personally observe this game I admit.  However, perusing through the boxscore looks like it was a fine day for Billy Butler, just when he was in doubt.  It's also nice to see Graveman continuing to pitch strong and is now only the second A's starter to possess a winning record.

3-5 (loss)

Another small lead was blown on what else? An error and then a 2 out hit. It's becoming really aggravating for me to watch these things. Today I shut the game off when the score was 2-3 Royals. My thoughts of resigning from this blog are strong.

Royals 5, Athletics 3
