First - yes, the A's had a crap game yesterday. I blame Bobby Crosby. He needs to deliver this season or the fans will definitely be calling for his head. I imagine if he has a subpar season, by the All-Star break we may be hearing some rumblings.
Curt Schilling had a crappy game yesterday too - I think he was somewhere around 70 pitches before the second inning ended. He blogged about his outing here. If you're a baseball fan you may enjoy reading Curt's blog. During Spring Training he put up a lot of posts answering different questions, etc. He writes pretty well and it's pretty cool to be able to read the opinions/thoughts of a baseball pro (a great one no less) from the inside.
