Breaking Your Heart Again

Back in April, I wrote an entry about how per-season optimism bled away as the A’s lost their home opener to Seattle. Now that optimism returns, as Oakland have a best in baseball 18-3 record in the month of July. They lead the race for the American League wildcard and are catching the division leading Texas Rangers.

Those 18 wins include a four game sweep of the Damn Yankees and inflicting Toronto’s biggest blowout defeat in team history. There is just one defeat in the last ten; the last game that it attended.

Starting to hope for a first post season since I arrived in Bay Area. A colleague at work has already started saving for World Series. I cannot help but feel hope, but with a hundred games played, Oakland have 62 more to go. Those hopes can still be dashed, for baseball is designed to break your heart.
