So the Athletics looked woefully inept in their first six games of the season. They were swept by the Astros, lost the first two of three against the Dodgers--all of these games played in Oakland--and then...suddenly...the tide turned.

The Dodgers blew their chance to sweep, the "A"s came back, and now they've won 11 straight. I don't think I've ever seen that awkward a start out of the gate. The AL West might be more interesting than I expected.

And to honor their streak all of baseball has "gone green." Laughing I couldn't help but to notice as soon as this happened, Earth Day comes around. They get that, and St. Patrick's Day too. But, it was a terrific turnaround. Well they can thank KJ for starting them off. lol

My gosh they have won 12 straight now! This is incredible to start off so horribly and come back like that. Most teams do not get a 12 game winning streak even in the middle of the season.

The A-train rolled on in Baltimore again, as they won their 13th consecutive today, 7-2.

Well, they finally lost one after 13 straight! But still what a run.

Has anyone noticed Oakland is now in first place at 21-14 with most wins in the majors? That shows a bad week or two cannot tell the whole story about how a team will do.

Yes & I recently found out that this year was the first time their history that they started 0-7. 121 years.
