California Love

If Dr. Dre and 2Pac’s prediction of the future is correct, in the year 2095 the city of Oakland will transform into a post-apocalyptic hub that resembles something from a Mad Max movie which may or may not include Chris Tucker.

You think they’ll still have a baseball team by then?

In the meantime, the Toronto Blue Jays will continue their tour of Californ-I-A and roll into Oakland for the final three games of their West Coast swing.


It won’t necessarily be the marquee series everyone is looking forward to, but with both teams currently exceeding expectations it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.

Nobody really expected the Toronto Blue Jays to lead the league in home runs as nobody really expected the Oakland A’s to have the best team ERA in the league.

The Blue Jays have handled the Oakland A’s with relative ease over the past few seasons, compiling a 19-13 dating back to 2007.

As the Blue Jays and the A’s get ready to square off, I have one question for you: can you dig it?

Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

    I kind of thought the A's could have the lowest ERA – Their park plays as a pitcher's park, they have some good pitchers and the Angels and Mariners don't have great offenses.

    Steve, for being a group of relative unknowns, the Oakland A's pitching staff is performing very well. All 5 of their starters have an ERA of 3.71 or under. And like you said, if they scored a few more runs, then their total record might be much much better.
