About Pat Suley


  1. AJ Kaufman says:

    Good stuff, guys, though look at Oakland’s Sept. schedule. It is brutal. Orioles playing Toronto and Boston 13 times in 30 days is easier than Oak playing a hot Seattle team, a very talented Angels team fighting for the playoffs (and to avoid embarrassment), and the best team inthe AL (Texas). Oak also plays the Yanks, Tigers and Orioles. So, though I dont make predictions, I think the A’s have a VERY challenging schedule with a VERY young team. Detroit and Anaheim have experience, for what it’s worth. I have no horse in this race, so just pointing that out.

  2. This is true…im not crazy about either of these teams. And we saw what happened last year, if you get hot in September, anything can happen. This race isnt over for the AL wildcard, and im not counting out either detroit or LA
