The wait is finally over folks, baseball is back. I know the offseason was technically over when pitchers and catchers reported, but we don’t get much from that other than a few articles that tell us what the players are looking like. Tomorrow you get the actual game, A’s vs. Giants.
It’s been a long time since we got watch an Oakland A’s baseball game. We may not get to watch all spring training games, but we can listen on the radio as well as follow pitch by pitch on MLB At Bat app or other websites that may provide that service. We get to have our team go up against other teams and get see how the players are shaping up in actual in game situations. We get to evaluate how hitters are doing against more than just batting practice, but actual in game pitches that determine how the game will go.
After the devastating loss once again in game 5 of the ALDS to Justin Verlander we as fans have been dying to watch our team return to action and finally make that final push to get that World Series Championship. It all starts tomorrow, with Jesse Chavez set to start. The A’s are one of the only teams that have officially announced who is starting their games for the next few games, with Milone pitching on Thursday, Parker on Friday, Gray on Saturday and Kazmir on Sunday.
Baseball is back folks, not just practice drills, but actual baseball games.
