Back on May 29th, I bitched about it being tough to be an A’s fan. On that day, they were 17-32, and looking at a pace of winning 54 games for the season. They had lost their last 8 in a row. 20 of 24. I saw no reason to be optimistic.
Since then, they’ve gone 43-14. They now are half a game back of the Angels, and have won their last six games. Crosby’s return has something to do with it, but there are lots of kudos for everyone.
The A’s are back in it, and I have been left with pie on my face. I’m back to wearing my jersey. Curse my fickle nature. I’ve learned my lesson.
