I'm a native of Northern California, but have recently relocated to Los Angeles. I've been writing online in one way or another since 2003, and I'm pleased to be joining SB Nation as a newsdesk writer for the West. Talk to me about sports!
The A's are a team that has been defying expectations all season. What's one more win-or-go-home three-game stretch?
It took 162 games, but the A's are the kings of the West. It was a long, wild ride that will be placed among the best Oakland seasons ever.
The A's stunned the Rangers again on Tuesday. They can win the American League West on Wednesday.
The A's managed to hold on for a win to open their series against the Rangers. With the win comes a postseason berth, putting the exclamation point on an amazing season.
The A's will clinch a postseason berth with their next win. Will it come on Monday?
The A's once again proved that being homer-happy is a very good thing. Another dramatic win at the Coliseum brought Oakland's magic number down to 2.
The A's needed a win on Friday night and they got one. Oakland whomped on the Mariners for a few hours in a decisive win.
