Lester, A's beat Mariners 4-0

The A's can exhale, just a little, because with their 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday, they have some breathing room again in their quest for the playoffs. Jon Lester threw six innings of scoreless ball and Sam Fuld and Brandon Moss each hit a solo home run to ruin the weekend for the Mariners, who had visions of pushing past the A's in the American League wild-card race.

Mariners 4, A's 2 -- James Paxton powers through command issues, ...

There were times on Friday night when it seemed like James Paxton's start would freefall into a messy disaster and take the Mariners' victory hopes down with him. But the rookie lefthander just wouldn't break.

Game #147: You Can Only Laugh At This Point

The funny part of this game is that it wasn't actually the lefty that got to the A's tonight. The A's had plenty of chances in this one, but could only score two runs.

Start and sit hitters for Week 25

Though normally in Fantasy Baseball, you'd start your best players every week regardless of matchups, in those weeks when you do need a fill-in, whether because of injuries or the total collapse of a trusted starter, Scott White is here to help. At each position, he'll list the players who are "too obvious" for the upcoming week, meaning the ones you wouldn't consider sitting for anyone off the list, and then suggest a start and a sit based on a variety of short-term factors.

Oakland Athletics

Heading into last night's contest, the A's had averaged just 3.4 runs per game during an 8-19 stretch, a span that just about knocked them out of contention for the AL West crown. However, behind five hits and four runs batted in by Josh Donaldson, Oakland rolled to an 11-2 victory over the White Sox and have a 1 1/2-game lead for a wild card spot.
