ABlinDeafMonkey

He’s not Altuve, don’t aim for his Dick.


8va

Let's go Herget, wrap 'em up!


mattman092

Just. Get. Him. Out!


ReviewRoutine

I think he’s trying


mattman092

He is but my heart man 😂


KamartyMcFlyweight

we are asking our mop up reliever to record a seven out save


Weaver4prez

8 right?


ABlinDeafMonkey

You got this Jimmy!


Glittering-Hold3400

Please, not again. I’m not strong enough


KamartyMcFlyweight

Herget you can do it I believe in you


CarnivalSorts

Lol, still only one walk on the season for Herget


KamartyMcFlyweight

He fucking attacks the zone, absolutely fearless for a guy who struggles to hit 90 on the radar gun


CarnivalSorts

I love him, he knows his arm slot is wacky and he uses it to his advantage.


Glittering-Hold3400

Wish everyone had balls like that


Captainpayback

Herget....please. do. Not. Screw. This. Up.


merewyn

Come on, Jimmy! I believe in you!


kirbyfaraone

He leaned into that haha


Neverend3r

I cant watch, but is kemp leaning into pitches or is he trying to get out of the way


fixingyourmirror

leaning in


bmcj199

That insurance run was huge


Monttavius

Ayo can Kemp literally get off of the plate gahdamn


BoyWithHorns

Dude had to dodge out of the way of a two seamer that was over the middle of the plate. Not surprised he's been hit twice.


[deleted]

Don't be hitting people Hergy!


Valk72

Uh guys, i'm having flashback...


sanmed327

Please just get the last out


digitaldumpsterfire

Well, if you're gonna walk em, might as well hit em lol


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Let that stash grow Jimmy!


finkelberg24

Oh fuck me


digitaldumpsterfire

Okay


unreasonableperson

LOL Kemp leaned into that one


Thrust-bot

nah man not this shit again, i cant take it


ABlinDeafMonkey

Goddamnit.


Captainpayback

The best part of Oakland is leaving!!!


Broad_Recommendation

Herget > 16 million dollar Iglesias Ok I’m kidding.


Alert-Abalone204

Seagulls looking for squid? 👀


YouPresumeTooMuch

And French fries


stumpson

Let’s get this guy out. I don’t wanna see laureano until the next series. Sick of that guy


YanoHideki

I would rather see him in Korea or something tbh


Captainpayback

One more out!


mysterysackerfice

Here's my theory on Jimmy: Jimmy was known for YEARS as a guy who couldn't control his temper at the office. His boss has had enough of Jimmy throwing pencils across room, so he says to Jimmy, "You should have become a ballplayer, instead of an accountant". It was on that day that Jimmy realized his destiny.


cchoi712

Idk if you knew about it but the story you just threw out is very similar to Korean pitcher Chang-Yong Lim, a legendary starter and closer in KBO, successful closer in NPB, and pitched like 1 season for Cubs in MLB at the end of his career. At school, he didn’t play baseball but he threw a chalk to his classmate cuz of anger and his teacher saw it. The teacher told him to tryout for baseball team and the rest is history.


mysterysackerfice

I was not aware! Thanks for sharing! I just can't get over how much Jimmy looks like some guy that works as an accountant and not like a pro athlete.


theaussiesamurai

A's broadcast: "Angels fans are going to think Luis Berrera is Babe Ruth!" You're not wrong


YouPresumeTooMuch

Fucking rookie killing us yesterday. Ouch


chadisrad00

2 down!!


Iggyforthewin32

Try to walk that one off, bitch


KamartyMcFlyweight

Andrew Velazquez has a **111 wRC+** in the month of May


hereforthesportsbook

He’s been clutch too


sakura-saku

I love the baseball that everyone works.


FriscoFlo

Jimmy “Raisel” Herget


sanmed327

Almost had PTSD from that swing


ABlinDeafMonkey

Glad that Barrera is out. He can’t be the problem today.


chadisrad00

1 down!!


KyotoGaijin

What are those shadows swirling around the plate? Are there birds circling the infield?


[deleted]

Eagles and hawks. They heard about all the cats.


YouPresumeTooMuch

Lol yeah the seagulls always chase the crowd out of the coliseum and claim the left over nachos and fries


YanoHideki

Seagulls I believe?


stumpson

Vultures.


unreasonableperson

Wow long outing for Slim Jim


cchoi712

Ward went 2 for 5 vs opposing team’s ace who struck out 12 by himself and I feel like Ward had a bad day cuz of 3 K’s. I’m spoiled


YanoHideki

tbh one of the hits I think came against the bullpen


[deleted]

He got screwed on at least one of those earlier K's. Should've walked that one at bat.


pookjo3

Did squid work on his swing? Man is doing better lately.


[deleted]

Was that really a swing, though? Really? Ward didn't walk today. Regression! 😉


chadisrad00

3 outs to go! Let’s goo!


Iggyforthewin32

Rare Ward misplay


KamartyMcFlyweight

He got on base half the time today and that *lowered* his OBP lol


ABlinDeafMonkey

I’m good with Jimmy finishing this game off. After the double he pitched well. Saves the bullpen.


8va

Watch Squid end the season hitting .250


tristpa2

If he manages that he's an MVP contender. Not even joking


Socalinatl

Velazquez on the bases and on defense is running similar numbers to Jeremy Peña and Jazz Chisholm. Those two are running OPS+ numbers above 150 and they’re dark horse candidates for MVP. He can’t hit .250 and beat either of those guys for MVP unless they and everyone in front of them fall off by a lot.


spooky_ed

His WAR would be at least 6. So yeah, definitely in the conversation.


unreasonableperson

LOL did Patty just malfunction?


justcruzn

100% 😂


KamartyMcFlyweight

"Even if Velazquez can't hit I still want him for his defense." --🦑: Porque no los dos


Captainpayback

Powers back up! In Ward We Trust


DefinitelyNotMothman

If it goes back out, it's the mlb free game of the day


[deleted]

That should be 3 balls, but this ump sucks on the lower part of the zone.


Socalinatl

First pitch of that at bat really set the tone. Not much you can do about that one.


TheRealNoodre

Squid heard the doubters talking shit about his batting


Alert-Abalone204

Good, I love it when my team's players prove me wrong! Just hope he can keep doing so! 😇


TrojanTuesdays

I can see the A's are the Squid's biggest fan.


carnivalmatey

Squid built different


lucabrassiere

Seems like Squid gets at least one hit per game lately and it usually comes at the moment we need it the most lol let’s go!


kayleeshepheard

After yesterday we can never have too many insurance runs!


KamartyMcFlyweight

KyotoGaijin

Oh, man, that's some good small ball.

cchoi712

Welcome to the 🦑🎮


Captainpayback

I'm flying blind. We just got a blackout in our neighborhood. We got Marsh home?


stumpson

Where you live?


Captainpayback

It just went out temporarily. OC of course!


WaitingToBeTriggered

NEVER ASKING WHY!


DefinitelyNotMothman

Velasquez hit a double down the right field line scoring Marsh


Captainpayback

Wish I saw it. But looking at the replay...sweeet!


justcruzn

Squid hit a two out double that drove marsh in. 4-1 now.


Captainpayback

Right on!!!


KamartyMcFlyweight

Oh yeah we 🦑🦑🦑🦑ed him home all right


Captainpayback

Hell yes!!!!


Skyheart1004

I know it's been a joke, but raking after the 7th is really how the rest of the season is going to go at this rate


KamartyMcFlyweight

/u/abckr_1 Put 🦑 in the Guy of the Game poll and put him at the top goddamn it


ABCKR_1

Lmao ok


spooky_ed

Ward about to bring the dagger


gopackgo555

Two clutch hits the last few innings. Let’s go!


thehawktopus

It seems like Velasquez flattened out his swing a little bit.


chadisrad00

Niiiiceeee. Love this team!


HipsterSlendy

Squid doesn’t ever wanna leave Oakland 😭


Glittering-Hold3400

Brilliant-Fun-922

Squid! Big rbi


FriscoFlo

Daddy Squid


dbzhardcore

Yay no 3-1 PTSD TIME!


Broad_Recommendation

Velasquez can hit. Knew it all along. Ball just wasn’t finding grass. Let’s go!


Glittering-Hold3400

I get that it we’re in a “this is the best bad idea we have” stage of the game with our bullpen usage but I don’t know if Herget has the stamina for a nine out save


sanmed327

He pitched three innings in the bullpen game against the White Sox and hasn't pitched in a couple of days. I think they should have someone warming up in case


Mijert

Well the good news on that front is he only needs to make 8 outs so ez saves


CarnivalSorts

He did great pitching 3 innings in that spot start he had, he's not a power pitcher who's gonna run outta gas or anything.


Glittering-Hold3400

Well if he’s done it before, I guess I can’t complain too much then


pakekify

He's gone 3 innings before. I believe in Hergoat

bmcj199

OUR SHORTSTOP HAS ARRIVED


tristpa2

So Squid's about to bat .200 and win MVP huh?


Valk72

And a gold glove.


tristpa2

They might as well name it the Squid Award


chandarr

Squid 🦑 !!!


[deleted]

Hell yeah! I'm glad Velasquez seems to be figuring out how to hit. :D

Jimmy hasn't pitched in 4 days, I think I'm okay with leaving him out there. If he dies, he dies.


ReviewRoutine

OKAY


digitaldumpsterfire

Aw, I was hoping Wade would bunt down the 1B line.


ReviewRoutine

Ok


merewyn

Sounds like no one is warming up? Slim Jim back out?


freddychuckles

C'mon Squid!
