Art Howe is no longer Oakland's manager ... it's Ken Macha.

There is no game tomorrow but your point is well taken. Bartolo had thrown less than 100 pitches (99) and had given up three hits and one walk in 8 innings. He was facing 9, 1, 2 and had owned all three of them all day. If he needed the rest the 10-15 more pitches would not have been overly taxing.

It is like Manuel has a pathological need to put his imprint on every single game.

I need no other additional reasons to seek his dismissal. The day after the season is over Manuel must go.

Is this a joke? Did you mean to put that in teal!?!? How can you love Koch? He is so damn bad it's comical. Plus, he's uglier than a fat chick with an extra chromosone!

It could have been worse in the 9th in jose didn't make that leaping catch....In this time of the year a win is a win and were only 1 out. I almost hate the Royals as much as the Mariners right now.

His last two starts Bartolo has looked strong through the 8th, but JM still pulls him. I don't get why he let him go earlier in the season and now won't let him go at all. I guess it came back to bite him before when Colon tired out and now he's afraid to leave him in. But he's over that so learn from it and don't let him pitch a CG every time. But still sometimes when he's only at 99 pitches. Let the bullpen rest and learn how to use your starters, moron! This should have been an easy win. Instead Marte has to pitch AGAIN.
