Mark Ellis...BA=.167 (but he's taggin the ball just hittin right at everyone) 3. Bobby Kielty....great defensive replacement 4. Charles Thomas....BA=.385 (has been clutch in pinch hitting appearances) SYNOPSIS My starting pitching is doing okay. Rich Harden is struggling despite his decent ERA. The Chicago White Sox blew me out one game but all 7 of my other losses have been by 1 RUN! The bullpen is where I've had the most trouble. Huston Street's injury hurt me in a few games, but two days ago I signed Billy Koch which should give me a very strong setup man, and Huston Street is finally back from his injury. I was having to do closer by committee for a while. Eric Chavez has been the MVP for the A's, very clutch. Nick Swisher has been a huge dissapointment, I've let him play most of the first month yet his batting average is now below .200 so I've got to get him out of the lineup. Adam Melhuse has stepped in as the DH with a .300 batting average and 2 big HR's. Bobby Crosby has also been a nice power surprise with 5 HR's in the first month, one a 3 run walk off off Bobby Jenks to beat the White Sox in 13 innings. Mark Kotsay looks to obtain a team goal by leading the league in SB's...so far he's succeeding with 11SB in the first month On a side note the division rival Anaheim Angels have taken 4 of the 6 games we've played and the Rangers split a two game series with the A's. So that's a 3-5 division record right now which we must improve on. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
