down 2 games, whats the strategy from here?

17 posts in this topic

do we start santana before game 5?

I realize we are not done yet, and I hope we can come back on these guys. In reality Oakland has to win 1 of the next 3 games to seal the deal. Im not throwing in the towel yet and hopefully the team doesnt either, but odds are not in our favor right now.

Remember what Boston did to the Spankees last year! Gardy said if they get to game 4 they'd start Santana... atleast thats what they said on ESPN radio.

I would start Radke for #3, he'll give it his all. Problem with the team is silent bats and nerves of jell-o. I believe they can win the next game, but they are going to have to approach it all somehow differently than they have. I mean c'mon, 3 runs in 2 home games is PATHETIC!!! confused.gif

Start Radke game 3. He's the guy that's played on the road, in Oakland, during the playoffs, and played well. Tall order but I really think if anyones up for the task, it's Bradke.

HOWEVER, the rest of the fellas need to HIT THE BALL!!!!!!!

It's a typical Gardy team. They get soft the last two weeks of the season and have nothing in the playoffs.

We need a no hitter from Radke at this rate.

Pretty simple here, Have to win the next one. Season is done if you don't win the next one. Nothing you can do about the first two just need to win the next one now.

I think the last two series the A's have lost they were up 2-0?

Alright everyone, PMA....It CAN happen.

But not you Buzz...you start LAMBASTING 'em for the ol' reverse rooting psych.

I think they are hittin' (9 today?) so they just gotta bunch some together and DON'T PITCH TO FRANK!

I really believe the good news is the fact that the As are NOT a better baseball team. Now if the Twins can just get the mental collapse stopped. One thing is for sure. They deserve to not be given up on this year until the very last out. This team has earned that much. I can only think of a couple teams that have shown this kind of character. Geno remembers one of them.

The answer is simple...Just ask JoeBoo.

Radke is throwing Game 3. I think they should go with Silva in Game 4 and save Santana for Game 5 at the dome on Sunday. Make a few less mental mistakes like Castillo missing the bunt sign in game one and striking out looking 3 times in game 2. Hunter just keep the ball in front. Get a few guys on base BEFORE you have 2 outs. The bottom line is they have a tough task just to get it back to MN. Haren pitched the twins tough last time 1-0 A's won and Harden is probably the best pitcher on the A's staff(he is starting game 4) he has just been banged up. The gotta pitch, hit and play the d. One game at a time.... 3 times in a row....I have tickets for game 5.......don't want to have to fish instead!! cool.gif

Two days of vacation wasted watching the Twins play bad A ball. I'm going fishing, the Twins are toast. If they play Sunday I'm not going to waste my time going to the dome and watch them screw up another home game.

Hey Buzzy,

Actually, last year the Sux swept Boston.

Now, I'm gonna go cry and watch the World Series DVD because I know the Sux could have made a statement this year if they just got in.

Oh well, there's always next year.

Commanche,

I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to post it just yet. So far the Central has been punching bags to their opponents. I know the Pale Hose would have faired better against either opponent. Windy

It's very easy to "know" your team will win games you didn't even qualify to play for. I enjoyed your posts until very recently. Now get a grip and display just a little class. This isn't an MLB message board.

actually sox went 2-4 against the yanks and 3-3 against the a's this season....what was all that talk about the twins not playing well against .500 teams, the twin split with the yanks and were 6-4 against the a's, not to say the twins are doing any better now but atleast their in the playoffs

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
