Drowning in the middle of Phoenix

By

As I drove around today, I had my station tuned into 680 KNBR listening to the Giants/Cubs exhibition team wishing that the A's were a larger market team in my area so their game against the Brewers would get picked up.  So anyway, as I laughed at the Giants as they seemed to be lost on how to get people out and let 8 runs score in the first 3 innings, little did I know that my beloved A's were also drowning in the middle of Phoenix.  A lackluster showing with only 1 run scored by a solo homer from Dan Johnson, the A's left everyone else on base after 10 hits.  Vets Mark Ellis and Jack Hannahan each had a pair of hits, and newbie Carlos Gonzalez picked up 2 as well.  Final score 7 to 1.  Joe Blanton allowed 6 earned in the first two innings with 3 SO and 1 BB.  They will face off against the Brewers again tomorrow, same bat time, same bat channel.

Adam - You know what they say about great minds.  I was out working on a BPO today and had the Giants on too.  I was thinking the same thing , wish I could be listening to the A's.  It's only the first game of spring training.  You know the A's, slow starters.

I miss the hot dogs and a cold beer from the baseball. Since I moved from Arizona to Tennessee... not going to the baseball games really depresses me the most.

I love the Diamond Backs!

I wouldn't miss a game. I am hoping Tennessee some day gets a team!

Well..I watch my daughter play soft ball. It s the best!
