          It's the curse of Don Denkinger!

            The A's just lost the game, plain and simple. They had so many chances to win the game, but they blew it. Good thing too. I thought Buddy Bell was going to cry in the 8th inning.

            Go Royals! If they keep it up, they might even win 40 games this season.

            BTW, at this pace, how many games will the Cardinals win? 108 or something?

              The Royals are so sad, they could offer LaRussa $12 Million per season (half of team payroll), plus $2Mil. annually to ARF, and he still wouldn't go there.

              He'd go to Pittsburgh first.

                      They really aren't that bad. I know it's hard to believe, but they aren't. They make a lot of bad mental errors that rookies are prone to make because the team is so young. But they will grow out of it. The biggest risk is that they'll ruin all of their promising young players to shell-shock.

                      Three of their pitchers had or have a bad dose of shell-shock. MacDougal had it so bad, it took him getting demoted to AA to get his act together. When his head is in the game, he looks like he should be closing for the White Sox instead. Affeldt is struggling now, but he was outstanding a couple of years ago. Grienke can't win a game to save his soul, but he'd be a starter on most teams. A couple of months ago, they said only Clemens was getting less run support as a starter.

                      If they stay the course and don't burn-out their young players, they might win the division in a few years. That's not saying much though. The White Sox are on top now, but that won't last. The Twins were great for a while too. This is a division that is usually worse than the NL West.

                        I think they are far from a division title. they just trade away people who might ask for money some day. they might keep one guy like a sweeney type, but that's it.

                          They only trade away guys who are up for a new contract. That's what happened with Beltran and a whole string of good players before him. Most of the players are very young and under contract for several more years. If they hold the course, they just might be able to time it right. That's a big "if".

                          With Allard Baird in control, it's doubtful that they will stay the course. He tends to get over-eager. But there's a very good chance that he'll be fired after this season.
